Friday evening was devoted to the black continent. Slide shows, short films,and mainly talks around the camp fire were all about ­tours inAfrica – but,of course,plenty of other things, too. It is this mixture of information from top-notch speakers and individual exchange that make up the atmosphere at Travel Events. The participants were able to demonstrate their navigational skills during a roadbook rallye. The objective was to find a number of well concealed points along a challenging and interesting route. Country-style atmosphere in the mountains of northern Slovakia. also a huge success, – even if a bit tough on some of the participants.The spea- kers entertained the crowd in the marquee,and the exhibitors had their hands full at their stands. Mattie Griffin, official BMW stunt rider, amazed spectators in the paddock with sheer impossible balancing feats on a BMW F 800 equipped by Touratech – who would have thought you can actually do stoppies and burnouts in the wet?
