Læs pressemeddelelsen fra José Damiani
We are pleased that we have been able to arrange a venue for the Bermuda Bowl, Venice Cup, Senior Bowl and World Transnational Open teams at the French Bridge Federation building in Paris on very nearly the same dates as those originally scheduled.
We need to have some flexibility (of at least one day), since the equipment is still at sea and has to be returned to Paris.
Teams participating in the Bermuda Bowl, Venice Cup and Seniors Bowl can arrange to arrive in Paris on Saturday 20th October in order to start play either on Sunday 21st or Monday 22nd with the Round Robin ending and the Knock Out phase starting either on Saturday 27th or Sunday 28th October. The Transnational Teams will start on either Sunday 28th or Monday 29th October and the Championships will thus end on Saturday 3rd November instead of Friday 2nd.
We have managed to arrange an excellent four star hotel situated about 10 minutes walk from the Arc-de-Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées for all the participants at a very good rate (even less expensive than Bali), but it is important that all the participants stay in this hotel so that we can arrange shuttles between the hotel and the playing area.
If it is your intention to attend these Championships as a member of the Press, and wish to stay in the hotel with the participants, please email Christine Francin (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information, and also let her know the dates of your intended arrival and departure and whether you require single or double rooms. Please be aware that because of the change of venue, there will only be limited Press Facilities, and it would be best if you can arrange to bring your own laptop computer and modem.
As soon as we have any more information we will contact you again.
President, World Bridge Federation
