That's great news Zelimir!

Thank you for the confirmation of the continuation of the Ensisheim Show and
for your dedication to keep the Ensisheim Show alive and growing!!

As for the last near-decade of my attendance and showing in Ensi, please
accept this as my life-long confirmation of my regular table, Mike Farmer's
table since he's currently traveling and Moritz' table with whom I always
group together each year to duplicate all of our confirmations! ;-)

As having been honored as one of the Guardians of the Brotherhood of the
Ensisheim Meteorite and winner of last year's first 'Thematic Exhibition' of
the 'Best of the Best' personal collection specimens with my NWA 5000 main
mass and slice, I fully encourage all in attendance to submit your very
best! Last year was an incredible success and all of the items on display
were simply amazing!! While it was a chore and quite the responsibility to
personally carry and curate my NWA 5000 specimens around Europe for two
weeks last year was a bit stressful, it was all worth the investment of time
and money to share such treasures with those who truly appreciate meteorites
like most all of us!

Ensisheim is my favorite show of the year! If you have never attended yet,
do so because you are missing out on what I refer to as, 'The Meteorite
Family Gathering'.

See you there!!

Dear Meteorite-Central List, IMCA members and all meteorite friends,

As already announced on the leaflets distributed last November in the Munich
show, now that the ?St George Brotherhood of the Ensisheim Meteorite
Guardians? was officially dissolved in February this year, the 2016
Ensisheim meteorite show will be organized on the same basis as last year,
namely by the recently created ?Association of Friends of the Ensisheim
Meteorite? and under the auspices of the ? City of Ensisheim? and of the ?
Ensisheim Federation of Associations?.

Please find here preliminary news concerning this 17 th edition of the show.

The place (Regency Palace in Ensisheim), the dates (the week preceding the
Ste Marie show, namely from Friday June 17 to Sunday June 19, 2016), as well
as the usual hall table arrangements, remain unchanged.
Opening hours:
Saturday: 9:30-18:30 (dealers access to the rooms possible from 7:30).

Sunday: 9:30-16:30 (dealers access to the rooms possible from 8.00)

The total number of dealer tables is limited to 58 (52 ?regular? and 6
?window-tables? in the consignment room). All tables are equal in size (160
x 80 cm ? note the large size). The price per table (not per meter), was
slightly increased with respect to 2015, namely: 1 table = 170 euro; 2
tables = 320 euro; 3 tables = 450 euro; 4 tables = 600 euro?.)

All past dealers/guests have full priority to reserve their last year
table(s). Those who did not come last year (2015) had lost their priority
and should be considered as ?newcomers?.

For the 2016 booking, we urgently ask our regular guests to do that ASAP,
preferably before the end of April 2016 (slightly flexible deadline).
However, if you already had reserved ?implicitly? or ?think that you have
reserved?, please APPLY AGAIN (E-mail me in a couple of words) and confirm
your table(s).

If you can?t make it this year, please notify me that you want to cancel.
This is very important and absolutely needed for me to readily assign tables
to those who are on the waiting list.

The organizers will attribute to the newcomers the layout of places within
any of the 3 halls in the most appropriate way so as to meet as many wishes
as possible. Note that the 3 halls are all equivalent, as the public must
inevitably walk through.
Tables are attributed to newcomers, as always, on a ?first come, first
served? basis.

For table reservation, just E-mail me (Zelimir.Gabelica at uha.fr)

To avoid money transfer complications and bank fee, we accept you pay the
table renting, cash. Tables are to be paid on Saturday morning between 7:30
and 9:30 to the treasurer, at the reception desk visible from the entrance
door of the Regency building. Please prepare cash (preferred), though French
checks are tolerated. Credit Cards are NOT accepted.

To pay, the dealers and their assistants must wear their badges (or ask for
at the reception desk).
Badges are attributed on the following basis: 1 table reserved = 1 or 2
badges attributed; 2 tables, up to 3 badges; 3 tables, up to 4 badges, 4
tables, up to 5 badges?

If more people are officially part of a table team, they can either be
considered as ?public? and pay 4 euro as regular entrance fee, or pay 10
euro that includes the entrance during the dealer?s day on Friday and a
For this being possible, I?ll need very soon the full names of all the
dealers and their assistants, so we can prepare the corresponding badges in

People without badges are not considered as dealers, can?t occupy tables,
nor are allowed to sell meteorites elsewhere within the buildings or on the
Regency square.

Maps and traveling indications could be found soon on the Ensisheim city web
www.ville-ensisheim.fr .

The nearby hotels remain "Domaine du Moulin", ?Les Loges de l?Ecomus?e ?,
"Niemerich" and "Cheval Blanc".
More info about their location and characteristics (phone, fax, e-mail, web
sites) are given on the official show flyer that is now ready and that you
can find on the city web site from next Monday April 25.
I can also send the flyer right now (mail) upon request.

IMPORTANT: everybody must arrange for his own accommodation!
If you call, they all do speak English and German.

Friday June 17 is the "DEALER?S DAY" devoted for tables/booth set up.
The Regency halls are exclusively open (13:30 ? 18.00) to dealers wearing
their badges, and NOT to the public.
Note that dealers can also install their tables on Saturday morning (7:30 ?
9:30) after having collected their badges at the reception desk (entrance of
the Regency palace) and pay their tables to the cashier present on the desk,
prior to climb the stairs.

On Friday, after the Regency rooms closure (18:00 sharp), gathering on the
main square in front of the Regency is scheduled for dealers, assistants and
invited persons at about 18:15, to attend the welcome addresses and the
induction ceremonies of the new Honorary
Members of the ?Friends of Ensisheim Meteorite Association? (equivalent to
the former Honorary Guardians nominations), but also to enjoy the
traditional welcome drink.

Note that the new inductees (?Meteorite Friends?) automatically acquire an
equivalent honorary status as the former ?Meteorite Guardians? (with a
plaque and a diploma as memory)

The traditional FRIDAY DINNER PARTY is maintained and starts at 20:00 inside
the large tent set in on the Regency square.
The restaurant "Le Boeuf Rouge" offers a special menu based on guinea fowl
(approx. ? 20, drinks not included): smoked salmon with brioche or pie with
salad, stuffed guinea fowl thigh, vegetables & spaetzles, iced kougelhopf.
You may also order a vegetarian menu .
Needless to insist the dinner party is more than recommended and everybody
(organizers, dealers, lecturers, public and all their friends?) is warmly
If you want to attend, a reservation is a must.
Just let me know by mail (for June 10 at the latest) the names of the
persons interested and their menu selection so that we can fully meet all
your commitments, needs and comfort.

On Saturday evening the ?Boeuf Rouge? restaurant is closed this year (fully
booked for a private wedding).
Dinner suggestion: possibility to enjoy under the Regency square tent, a
flammek?che-based dinner or other local fast food (see flyer).
Those who prefer having dinner elsewhere in the city are invited to return
to the square after dinner and enjoy t he ?Saturday night dance fever? and
the evening discussions that currently continue up to about midnight
(slightly flexible deadline).

Show Theme: ?METEORITES THAT HAVE CREATED A BUZZ ? (historical but also
recent falls with some weird or funny anecdote behind?).
Side theme: ?PALLASITES?

Two lectures (in French, but lecturers also speak English)

1) ?Planet, dwarf planet, asteroid, meteorite: what difference ?? (by Prof.
J.C. Lefebvre - Li?ge university, Belgium), Saturday 11:00 ? 12:00

1) ?Description of some famous historical meteorites? (by Marc Jost & Peter
Marmet, Bern, CH), Sunday 11:00 ? 12:00

This year, we invite ALL OF YOU to participate to the THEMATIC EXHIBITION by
bringing for display in the Regency museum showcases what you consider as
the ?best of the best? of your:

A) Pallasites
Here, everyone is invited to bring up to 5 pallasite samples (no more)
selected for their pure aesthetics.
As last year, we will organize a contest with public votes and reward the 3
most appreciated pallasites, basically for their subjective beauty and not
necessarily for their rigorous scientific significance. The 3 winning
samples should allow their happy owners to appreciate a symbolic prize in
the form of bottles of some traditional Alsatian wine, always unanimously

B) Historical meteorites
Everyone can bring some historical meteorites and write a short text
describing their fall characteristics. Just send me in time some informal
labels with the meteorite name, size, weight and a brief description of
their characteristics deserving a competitive display. Historical meteorites
are not subject to a public contest.


With warmly welcoming everybody to attend this special 17 th meteorite show
in Ensisheim, I am now expecting to receive news from many of you and remain
at your disposal to provide you with any kind of additional information.

Thank you for your interest,

My ever friendly wishes to everybody,
