OK...I'm not sure how much on this info I'm suppose to share but here is what is being asked of the Group:

"Playmobil would like to reorganize a factory vistit in Zindorf. The Groups task is to find out how much intrest there is and to set a date if enough people are interested. There are also the possibility of the Playmobil would offering special Hotelprices for the collectors in the Funparkhotel for that weekend. (this is the part of the information I'm nor sure I should be sharing...but I feel real adventurous tonight)"

So let me know if you are interested and if so for how many people. Can you also include your preference as to when it should take place (like spring, summer etc...)

Mad Nick

NIck you are being cruel to all of us who live in remote corners of the planet. My heart is saying yes but my bank account is giving me a very resounding no.
Look forward to hearing all about it and of course seeing all the pics.
Cheers
Janette

I'm interested, and we're two people. Best time would be spring or summer because driving down there is easier then.

Hi Nick,

Please put Clare and me down as interested. It may clash with previous committments, but those are too many to make it worthwhile saying what date would be good for us. I'll just keep my fingers crossed!

(...and is it a Collector's Club or a Secret Society that you are setting up ? )

Nick

There's news about when the visits will be arranged (but not when), who will be doing it and how it might be organised on Playmofriends. Is someone going to post about it here, or shall I just copy stuff from Playmofriends?

Thanks for keeping an eye on things.

I went and looked, but from what I gather there isn't really anything new except that the "Club's" creation comes first. Then Geobra will decide how they want the factory visits to come into being and how they can best manage the pillaging hordes of fans.

Details of Factory Tours have now been given at the PCC. The first two are aimed at German and Spanish speakers. The total size of each group will be restricted to 40, and I'm guessing this will make it difficult for partners to accompany fans.

The tours are planned over two days and include lunch at the canteen!

The first two tours - in German and Spanish are now booked and details of those going have been posted at the PCC.

No dates yet for the English and French tours due in 2014.
