The France Rose selection event takes place next Saturday (27th) "just down the road" from Paris (2h by train) in the town of Châteauroux Protected content anyone's looking for a great day and night out. This will be the first France Rose to be chosen for several years, so the organisers are more nervous than the candidates.
On the agenda, for those who want it, are paint-balling, zip-wires, carriage-driving, eating (bien sûr) and dancing to a great neo-trad band "Les Genoux". The candidate from Paris hasn't got a bus load of supporters, so I'm sure she'd appreciate anyone who wanted to assume temporary Irishness for the day!
30€ for the sports (including dancing) 36€ for the four-star dinner. Day time activities are at Protected content ; dinner is at Protected content ; the group are on Protected content ; and the France RoT page is at Protected content
