Activities Week in the Gers : 4th June until 11th June

relaxFor the last two years, we have had an activities week in the Gers, which has been organized by Ted and Jenny. Having organized it twice already, with all the difficulties that entails, they have decided to step down for this year. In the absence of a ready alternative volunteer, we are hoping, for simplicity, to revisit the same site, which is ideal and available for the first week of June.

‘Les Tournesols’ is an excellent rural location 6 minutes from the lovely market town of Eauze. The accommodation consists of small independent chalets with double bedroom, kitchen/diner and shower room. The site includes a heated swimming pool and there is a lake and it is adjacent to a golf course.

Each day we would either go on walks (which are gentle) or visit places of interest and villages around. In the evenings we often get together for a meal and drink and there are plenty of places to eat in the area. Lunches are usually picnics on a walk or you may decide to just do your own thing.

The cost will be in the same order as last year (about 41 euro per day per couple) and it is possible for anyone to stay for just half the week if they wish.

If you are interested, please contact John, our President, as soon as possible so that he can make provisional arrangements with the chalet owners. John’s contact details are in the Members Area here

Golf at Lacanau : Wednesday 21st October


golf

By popular demand, and as a result of conflict with a competition at Lacanau, we switched venue. We were blessed with perfect weather but alas, only five players made it to this outing.

Lunch at the clubhouse was most enjoyable and was followed by a gentle nine holes on this lovely riverside course. As usual the play was followed by a debriefing of the play, taking ale on the sunny terrace of the club bistro.
