How it all began ?

On the initiative of Bruno Choquel, a French retro-camper, an international meeting was organized near Paris, in St-Leu-d'Esserent, in 1996 (already on the Ascension week-end).

There were about 70 crews from England, Germany (COC), Belgium (CCCB1), the Netherlands (OCC) and France.
Given the success of the meeting, and the enthusiasm of everyone, Bruno Choquel decided to extend the existence of the RCCF (which was originally to be an ephemeral club, the time of this international meeting).
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      A meeting was organized in St-Leu-d'Esserent, between the representatives of the different foreign clubs (if I remember correctly: Paul Gallagher for the English, Wolfgang Schönwald for the Germans, Johnny Maekelberg for the Belgians, Fred Leeflang for the Netherlands, and Bruno Choquel for the French). It was decided that each club would take turns organizing its international meeting called ECCR. The Scandinavians did not arrive until after.

At the level of the participation, we were generally a good hundred crews, except in Northampton (a sixty crews) and except Sweden (for which I have no figures).
It is from Oteppe (B), in 2009, that the movement has grown enormously: about 160 crews. For the ECCR in France, we usually welcome 130 crews.
In 2017, we had for the first time more than 200 crews in Wanroij. And 220 last year in Germany. I think that at Werchter, we will be at least as many ;-)

Here is my little summary of the history of the ECCR.

Greetings.
