    Date: Sunday, April 19th, 2015
    Time: 12:00 - 18:00 o'clock (CET)
    Place: Hotel/Truckstop NOBIS, Nobisweg 1, 5721VA Asten NL

    Entrance fee: Only 2,- Euro per car.
    + 5,- Euro when you want to enter your car in the competition, to win a price in one of the following categories:

    * Extreme Mods *
    The car that has been most modified with CUSTOM touches.
    Preferably created and/or thought out by themselves, not just bought some parts off a shelve and put on the car.


    * Different Factorylook *
    A car that clearly has been modified, isn’t stock anymore, but it looks like this is the way the car should have rolled off the assembly line;
    made some improvements to the look but is still clearly in HONDA (factory) style. OEM look, but with a twist..


    * Show ’n Shine *
    The best show-car around. This is the winner of the winners, could have gotten a price in most of the categories.


    * Golden Oldie *
    The best looking HONDA, 25 years or older (pre-1990).
    This can be modified, or stock. In general the best looking HONDA of that age.


    * Under Construction *
    Doesn’t look the part yet (actually, it looks bad now), but the owner clearly has big plans for this car.
    This price is to encourage him to continue the work, and/or get moving!


    * Bone Stock *
    Like it just rolled off the assembly line from the HONDA factory. It has to be clean to the max, without any modifications,
    or the least amount of modifications done to it. Stock/OEM options are, of course, allowed and appreciated.



    An independent jury will judge all cars, that have paid to enter the competition and have the participation certificate
    clearly visible behind the windscreen, for all of the above mentioned categories..
    They decide who gets a well-stocked goodie-bag from Showoff Imports AND a very nice trophy as their reward.
    Especially for the * Under Construction * category, Showoff Imports has yet another very special something
    to come with the goodie-bag, just to make sure he/she can finish the job with a high quality product.

    There will be an additional prize (and everyone can win this) for that one HONDA that has travelled
    the longest distance to come to this meeting.
    This certain someone will receive our special IHM Globetrotter Award.
    What this prize is all about, we won't tell just yet. So...: Come and find out!


    There will be a couple special sections on the parking lot, like a:
    TIME ATTACK / RACE / RALLY Area, where there's a gathering of very nice HONDA's,
    that are really active in rally and/or racing.
    Most likely we'll also have a couple of CLUB Areas for the bigger HONDA clubs.
    If you would like to apply for such an area, please contact us via mail: rbgraphx@home.nl or simply send
    me a personal message on this forum.
    We will do our best to accommodate everyone's need, but can't give any guarantees.

    * ATTENTION *
    We would like to ask all visitors, that are on the parking lot of Hotel/Truckstop NOBIS, to abide to a few simple rules:
    - Drive slowly ánd carefully on the parking lot. Do not do sprints or anything like that. We would like to avoid any damage.
    - Look around you; keep an eye on your surroundings.
    - Don't do burnouts.
    - No excessive engine revving.
    We are but guests here and hopefully we can all behave ourselves accordingly,
    we would like to be able to use this nice location, in future, again.
    We thank you for your understanding!

    We will do our outmost best to make sure everything runs smoothly and will help you to a good parking spot.
    We can't be held responsible for any damage, despite our efforts, that might still occur.
    Hence we would like you to: take it real easy and be careful.


    Finally we would like you to have a look at our website:
    IHM 2015

    and take a look at this event, that is also mentioned of Facebook:


    In 2014 we had about 420 cars gathered, coming from Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands and some other countries.
    We welcome ALL HONDA'S, from any age, in any state. There's no preselection or anything like that.
    It's all about the love for the brand and what it is that makes us an HONDA enthusiast.
    We're hoping that we can break last year's record and get even more HONDA'S gathered.

    We can't wait!
    Hope to see you all there!

    If some of you are thinking of coming over, let me know. I'll make sure you'll have a separate section. And don't forget, the location is a hotel, just in case you would come one or more days early.We could eventually also organise a little get together or something with a bunch of Honda enthusiasts??? Just an idea.

    Now, THAT's the spirit, @RogerH69
    And remember... the one HONDA that has travelled the longest distance to get to this meeting, will receive the socalled "IHM GLOBETROTTER AWARD"!
    I will not tell you what that is, exactly.... but I can tell you it's worth the trouble!

    Hmmmm - others in the UK will probably count as being further away than me (unless I go through all the border checks using my South African passport, because then I'm officially travelling from South Africa :Smile: ).

    Alternatively, if I 'get lost' along the way from Oxford to the event, and end up doing an extra couple hundred miles, that might help :Rolf:

    £88 return was the cheapest price I could find including the car.

    According to Google and Bing, it's between 6.5 and 8 hours drive for me from Oxford. first time I'd be driving on the wrong side of the road though...

    So seriously guys - anyone else considering a road trip / convoy of some sort?

    Mate, I'm all for it. Other than the cost of the ferry and fuel, it's only a few days off work :Laughing:
