Here at Dumball HQ we haven’t slept a wink. That’s because we’re so excited about 2018. The Route is locked and loaded (see below) and it promises to be one of the most spectacular EVER.
The Route has ‘evolved’ a little since our first annoucement, so if you’re lucky enough to be involved then make sure you take note. Remember everything will be described in detail in your drivers manual, which will be sent out soon.
Now it’s over to you. You’ve been preparing…. some of you have even been getting on with your fundraising… Now, you are about to rewarded – handsomely.
From Friday 14th September 2018, our cavalcade of madness will take in the following route…
MEET AT MARGATE: DREAMWORLD FOR A STAR STUDDED SEND OFF
DRIVE TO: CALAIS, FRANCE
DRIVE TO: LAKE GENEVA, SWITZERLAND
DRIVE (THROUGH THE ALPS) TO: VILLACH, AUSTRIA
DRIVE TO: SARAJEVO, BOSNIA
DRIVE TO: KOLASIN MOUTAIN RESORT, MONTENEGRO
DRIVE TO: KOSOVO
DRIVE TO: DURRES BEACH, ALBANIA
DRIVE TO: CORFU, GREECE
PARTY PARTY PARTY: SECRET LOCATION
Yes, this year’s Dumball will be utterly unforgettable, starting at Dreamland in Margate for the opening ceremony! So make sure you save it as a destination in your sat nav now. Festivities will begin at midday and we’ll be hitting the road at 4pm sharp – so don’t be late! It promises to make this year’s send-off the biggest and best ever. Remember the earlier you arrive, the more time you will have to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the live music, star appearances and have a go on the rides.
Then, after jumping on the Eurostar we’ll be taking the scenic route through the alps as we take in Austria for the first time: extra border points for those who go via Lichtenstein.
We will be heading back to the hotel we visited in 2008 in Sarajevo, complete with revolving restaurant and indoor pool.
In Kosovo we’re staying in a brand new 5-star hotel where dinner will also be provided. Let’s hope they’ve finished building the road there…
In Durres, Albania, we’ll be staying on the beach where we’ll be greeted by local dancers and a feast.
And in Corfu we have surprises in store at our Big Awards Bash on Saturday 22nd September, in a unique and beautiful location.
if you’re not involved yet, unfortunately DUMBALL 2018 is sold out…. but there is always next year!
