Fixtures (& it's all good news):- Here's what I've been given by our man in Bordeaux. "It's good to hear from you. I recall enjoying an excellent day's cricket two Summers ago with the Pacific & Griffins combined team and we would be delighted to welcome you back to Bordeaux in 2006. I have attached the provisional South-West League & Cup fixture list to give you an idea, although I do emphasise that these dates will only be confirmed on October 29th when the league convenes....July and August however, as you will note, are largely kept free for (among other things) visiting sides etc".

As far as other contacts go:

St-Aulaye CC Wynford Hicks

Eymet CC David Horlock

Damazan CC John Ayling

Thenac CC (a new club near Bergerac - they ought to have their ground ready for next year - mainly French, perhaps a little weak) Ramon Garcia

Anything else, don't hesitate to email me. My best, Neil"

ACCOMODATION Not much progress here, I'm afraid - left a message with the owners & am waiting for them to return my call.

COST Well I'm not certain yet but we will be travelling in high Summer ie. late July to late August. Deposits will be asked for once I know what they are asking for.Meanwhile as for timing, my own personal preference is over BH August week.

COMMITTMENT. Maybe I should have put this 1st, interest continues to rise & spread. Latest numbers I have is 15 people + partners & families. Looking Good.

TRANSPORT. Will come back to this once we get dates sorted.

Any questions contact The Club Secretary.
