The 15th Convention may be held in October 2012.
The main theme could be: Speed and Power
Please note: This information is not confirmed yet.
On September 19/20, 2009, the second German US-Convention was held in Rodgau (Frankfurt) Germany, organized by Horst Meier. Even both events (their 2nd CV and our 14th CV) were just 3 weeks apart, it did actually not hurt each other, it was worth to see both exhibitions. Of course, our 14th Convention was bigger and we do have a tradition since 1981.
The 3rd CV will be on October 15/16, 2011. Here is the link for the German US-Convention: click here
