    Wellll, time have come for preparing the Get Together in Paris :) :)
    FrenchBadiste and myself plan to be there, and each can come with a few friends from our local clubs :)

    Perhaps we can first list the BCers who plan to come :

    Thom_Bad (Thomas - France)
    FrenchBadiste (Jeremy - France)

    Let me know what the plan is. I should be able to get together. It would be great to rent some courts for sure. I wouldn't leave home without my rackets.

    Actually we don't really have a plan....
    I can easily find courts, that wouldn't be a problem I think..

    Fastdrop and I are coming. He will be there the whole week (but then fastdrop's no stranger to Paris). Got our mailed tickets last month.

    I will only arrive via London on Thursday nite 26/8. Just in time for the final 3 days. Still haven't started learning common French phrases ...... just getting my bearings around the Paris Metro, RER and Tram network to and from my, ahem, base of operations.

    But since it is the fasting month where I only get to eat at 9 pm, no strenuous activities for me ....... but I will still join in as, err, tournament referee, commentator or court mopper ...... wakakakaka.

    Why, Emirates, of course ..... I'm a Skywards frequent flyer. From Singapore, given the right booking time, it is dirt cheap to fly inbound to London, and return direct from CDG via Dubai. And the timing of the flights is conducive to fasting month pre-dawn meal times.

    And what's this about adebeng, it is abedeng ....... wakakakaka.
