Welcome

Dear friends of the 2CV / dear Citroenists

The corona crisis in the first half of 2020 has severely affected or cancelled all events
planned for this year at global level. Most 2CV events were also touched.

Despite these experiences, the Organising Committee (OC) of the 2021 World Meeting,
which will be held in Switzerland, is continuing its work steadily and consistently to ensure
that the event can be held in any situation. Therefore, the current plan will be maintained and adapted if necessary.

Should a similar situation arise next year as in 2020, with the resulting legal restrictions for
events, we will of course have to act accordingly.

In any case, we will do our utmost to be able to hold the 2021 World Meeting with all preregistered participants. Of course, in special cases we also trust in the understanding and
cooperation of all meeting participants and visitors.

In any case, the OC will pull out all the stops to carry out the WET 2021 – in the extreme case
with a smaller participation. There would be no selection procedure – admission would be
based on the date of the received pre-registrations – there is no other way. Certainly,
spontaneously arriving meeting participants (without pre-registration) would then have to be turned away.

Let’s hope that it doesn’t happen and that this epidemic disappears as quietly as it came –
nevertheless this year’s corona situation could have an impact on our meeting, even if
everything goes back to normal. There are 2 scenarios:

Few people come : Because of fear and uncertainty, many people decide not to come to
WET 2021 in Switzerland. A little solidarity would do us all some good !

We are overrun : Because many meetings have been cancelled this year and especially
because there are no big meetings like DET and ICCCR, the desire to come to Switzerland
for the World Meeting is even greater and we are flooded with participants. We certainly have stricter regulations than other countries, so that in a severe case, the entrance to the meeting would have to be restricted. In this case, all those who have registered in advance would certainly be admitted, and those who arrive spontaneously might not be admitted.

That is why it is important not only for us, but also for you, that as many participants as
possible register by the end of 2020 and still benefit from the preferential rate, which is valid
until 31 December 2020.

We are always open to suggestions. Secretariat (mail@2cv2021.ch).

The OC, our Swiss 2CV and Citroen friends, as well as the region Delemont, are looking
forward to a special event, which should not only meet the expectations and wishes of all
participants and visitors, but also make us as organizers happy.

Thank you for your attention and see you soon in Helvetia !

The Organising Committee of the World Meeting of 2CV Friends 2021, President Willi Brändli

The Swiss 2CV friends and the region of Delémont in Switzerland look forward to welcoming you at the 24th 2CV World Meeting, which will be held 27 July to 1 August 2021.

From the outset, the organizing committee composed of members from the 2CV community found partners that were very excited about the idea of organizing this major event. We can therefore guarantee a well-organized and authentic event, which will include cool drinks, good music and camp fires – all in true 2CV spirit.

The meeting will take place in the Canton of Jura, not far from its capital, Delémont. The canton of Jura is the youngest canton in Switzerland. It gained its independence in 1979 thanks to a very particular mentality. The people of Jura are passionate, authentic, freedom- and nature-loving and they appreciate simplicity and conviviality. Your values are therefore also ours.

We are also the land of horses. In fact, the Freiberger or Franche-Montagne is the only horse breed originating from Switzerland. You can therefore rest assured that it won’t be a problem for us to deal with “two horses” for a week.

The venue is very popular among Swiss 2CV friends. It is located in a beautiful natural setting between the communities of Courroux, Courrendlin and Val-Terbi. The location is only 5 minutes away from Delémont, the capital of the Canton of Jura.

Thanks to the venue’s location in the heart of Europe, participants won’t have to travel long distances, i.e. only 30 Minutes from Basel and 45 minutes from Belfort.
