Paris Do, again?

Am in a very good mood. I can see some flicker of sunshine.

Besides, am going to the beach soon, just bought some summer dresses... So am very happy to escape the gloom that we have been having here.

And since I flacked out on the LondonDo, yes am a flake, for some sun I started thinking of hosting a Paris Do sometime in the fall, Sept/Oct.


I think I know what am going to propose doing. (for now)

A very nice dinner at a great restaurant, a Louvre treasure hunt.

Any other ideas would be great.

So anyone interested?

Date dependant, yes. I've never been to Paris (3 hours at CDG doesn't count!)

Pretty much any weekend is fine for me at the moment, the Oct/Nov duty roster hasn't been written yet so the earlier I get my bid in the better. And my TP collection year ends 08 Nov so any trip that gets me closer to that GUF2 voucher before then would be welcome

The Lady Tobias and I would love to attend but our Do attendance track record of late hasn't been good having to pull out at late notice. Unfortunately my diary for September and October is already completely full.

Hopefully we'll manage a Paris Do soon, Her Ladyship still has never visited Paris but it is a place she so wishes to visit ... may be next year!

I'd certainly be interested, date dependent.

Sounds great. The previous Paris do (blimey - over year and a half ago now) was really enjoyable.

Depends on dates but it's a possible from me.

Could someone who knows how to add a Wiki at the top, putting in some of the date options already posted, e.g. weekends of 3/4 Sept, 24/25 Sept, 1/2 Oct, 8/9 Oct, another date? These are mere suggestions to get the ball rolling.

You have to ask a mod to create one. aternatively just do it as a list of dates and add names to each date based on what ones folks say they can do.

Perhaps, but that is for the OP to organise if she is so minded. As the host of the Do BAFT protocol dictates that the dates, timings and locations etc are entirely at her discretion and want.
