19th ?ENSISHEIM METEORITE 2018? show news (Feb 18, 2018)
Dear meteorite friends, members of IMCA & Meteorite-Central List,
Please find preliminary news mainly concerning the new place of the 2018 show.
As it was already informally announced last June in Ensiheim, confirmed to many of you on a leaflet distributed at the Munich Mineral show last October, and also officially announced this year in the 2018 calendar of world mineral shows in the Lapis journal January issue and on a separate Lapis booklet, our 19th meteorite show edition had to be tentatively shifted to another building, due to important works in the Regency palace where an elevator (lift) is to be built. These works will start in the forthcoming weeks and should last at least one year.
The address of the new (provisional) show hall is :
Gymnase Communal, Rue de Colmar, F-68190 ENSISHEIM.
To satisfy many inquiries regarding the precise location of the new show hall, here are more details.
The new building is located in the middle of a large park, about 450 m (? as the crow flies?) from the Regency palace.
Roughly when you reach ?downtown Ensisheim?, drive straight through the main street (?Rue de la premi?re Arm?e?), ignore the Regency palace and the ?Domaine du Moulin hotel? that are on your right, cross the bridge and proceed straight 200-250 m through ?Rue de la Gare? up to the first large roundabout (traffic circle) where you take the 3rd exit, Rue de Colmar, thus on the left from ?Rue de la Gare?.
The entrance is immediately on your left and you can enter by car the large yard (which is surrounded by ?Rue de la Gare? and ?Rue de Colmar?).
You will spot 2 main buildings, the ?Gymnase? (show hall) and the ?Elisatia? building (restaurant, lecture rooms etc)?.
Park the car at the appropriate places indicated by signs and located around the buildings, (parking space is large enough).
In case, I can provide a detailed map as mail attachment, on request; just ask.
The next concern of many of you is the table setup and the dealers layout.
The ?Gymnase Communal? involves a large 40 x 20 m sports hall where all the tables will be aligned in (most probably 4) parallel rows in a way equivalent to the Munich show halls. All tables are therefore equivalent and equally enlightened by natural sunlight through roof windows.
I will try to arrange the tables? layout as it was in the main Regency room, respecting as much as possible the presence of the usual neighbors in each case.
There is space enough to accommodate all the 2017 participants and even to add a few extra tables for possible newcomers, understanding that we do not wish to overstep 55-60 tables.
The table renting conditions stay roughly the same as last year. The food and lecture spaces are by far improved and much free space is now available for side activities within the shadowed park around the show buildings.
Finally Ensiheim show dates are scheduled, as usually, the week preceding the Ste-Marie Mineral & Gem show, thus:
- Professional day: Fri. June 15: 13:00?18:00
- Public: Sat. June 16: 9:30?18:30 and Sun. June 17: 9:30?16:30
More news will be provided soon after we have a committee meeting this late February.
>From now on, you are free to officially apply for your booth (write to me, preferably by mail, as I am currently very seldom available on phone).
Thank you for your constant interest for our event!
My ever friendly regards to everybody.
