    U152 'THE GATHERING!'

    I had an idea whilst thinking about my own mortality recently as been awaiting results of some tests

    Many of us love travelling and history...
    so how about a GATHERING for all U152 and subclades?

    I thought of Geneva, Switzerland as it is central and probably offers many flight options.

    Obviously it will take some time (maybe years) for people to save up the funds and for some impossible especially for you guys in the U.S. or Australia. I mentioned it to the mrs who is keen as partners could be invited along to shop or whatever.

    It may never happen due to lack of interest or finances, but it is good to dream

    Thoughts?

    Great idea, in my case lack of finances will be the biggest hurdle. If I look at the cheapest flight options within Europe (Ryanair), Milan would be a better choice.

    Looks great, it is close to Mainau and not far from the Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen.

    I'm flying to Zurich on Aug 28 and flying out of Zurich on Sep 6. Is that too soon to pull this together?

    I would be interested, financial burdens being the main deterrent.

    I am interested as well. Although a date of 2016 is probably more likely than 2015 for me. Just make sure to keep me in the loop.

    I'm also interested in meeting my (Celtic?) cousins.
