2007 Montreal meeting

The 21st meeting was held at Cambrils on the Catalan coast of Spain, about 260 km from the French frontier, on 13 - 16 September 2007. 34 Montreals and 66 participants attended the meeting, which was organised by Agusti Vilella and supported by the Cambrils Tourist Board and the Alfa Romeo Club of Catalonia as well as a local dealer of the marque. The meeting hotel was the 4-star Hotel Mónica, which is located about 100 metres from the beach and the Cambrils harbour and yacht club.

Participants who arrived in Cambrils by the afternoon of Thursday 13 September could visit the castle-monastery of Escornalbou and the Marc Vidal private car and motor cycle museum. A self-service buffet dinner was available in the evening. The following morning, the party drove to Calafat racing circuit, where the Montreals had the use of the track for an hour and a half. This was followed by visits to the charming villages of Scala Dei (Carthusian monastery and winery), Cornudella del Montsant and Prades. A seafood buffet was provided in the hotel in the evening, during which a draw was made among the participants and the winner, Willy Flaig from St. Gallen, Switzerland, was awarded an exclusive Manometro wrist watch by the prestigious Florentine designer Giuliano Mazzuoli.

On Saturday 15 September, participants visited Masllorenç for a tour of the Magrinya classic car collection. After a visit to Montferri and lunch, the party returned to Cambrils with time for chat before the gala dinner in the evening. The following morning the group photo was taken at the Fishermen's Wharf and a magnificent seafarer's breakfast was served before the Montreals started for home.

All the participants were sent a DVD with a souvenir video composition of photos from the meeting. Others who would like to purchase a copy of the DVD may do so by emailing their postal address to Agusti Vilella. The price of EUR 13 (including postage to anywhere in Europe) can be paid to Agusti by PayPal.
