Paella Lunch Sunday 16th

On Sunday the 16th, the day after the tournament, Jeff and Marion plan to have a paella lunch at the place du Coulet. Everyone is invited to stop by and join in. We already have paella pans and a gas burner system in place.

Things will be pretty casual and informal. We will do our best to make a good dish with whatever we can find in the village, so we may not have all the most fancy ingredients.

​If you plan to participate please let us know by sending us a message through the Contact page so we have an idea of how much paella to make. Thank you!

Friday 14th Meet and Greet

From 5 to 7 PM on Friday the 14th, the evening before the tournament, we are inviting all the players and supporters from Austin and Annot to get together for a "Meet and Greet" with some cocktails (apéritifs in French) and snacks at the little courtyard in the middle of the old part of the village — la place du Coulet.
