1998 Montreal meeting

A very successful 12th European Montreal meeting was held on 11 - 13 September at Lugano-Agno (Ticino), Switzerland. The meeting was organized by the late Bernhard Schalbetter. Bernhard arranged special rates at the 4-star Hotel la Perla and organised an attractive programme including a Montreal drive to Capolago (at the end of Lake Lugano) and a mountain railway excursion to Monte Generoso by specially chartered train. The return trip for the Montreals was by attractive country roads bordering Lake Lugano and a gala dinner was held on Saturday evening.

70 enthusiasts registered for the meeting and about 38 superb Montreals participated, coming from as far away as Sweden and Finland. 31 of the Montreals took part in the excursion to Capolago. After heavy rain during the preceding night, the atmosphere was so clear on sunny Saturday that Milan could be seen from the summit of Monte Generoso!
