From the President

Chers Amis
Lunch at Indulge was our big event this month. It was the most recent in a series of fabulous meals from France and francophone countries that we have enjoyed over the last year or so. Bouillabaisse was the keynote meal served as we were celebrating the food of Marseille and France’s Mediterranean coast. In all, there was a choice of three main courses and three desserts providing enough variety for everyone’s preferences. In the past we have enjoyed the food of Morocco, Canada, Belgium, Viet-Nam as well as metropolitan France.
I would like to say a special thanks to Mike Warren and Kerry Hunting for their work in organising this month’s very successful event. Mike was also the author and presenter of the Hard Quiz (apologies to Tom Gleeson) which turned out to be hard enough for most of us, but not so for the team comprising Wolfgang and Regine Kasper and Jon and Kieren Gaul who were the winners on the day. Congratulations to Wolfgang, Regine, Jon and Kieren.
Our last event for this year will be the Annual Coupe d’Antibes and Christmas Party which will be held at Mandeni Park on Sunday, 27 November. For those among you who have never played pétanque (organised twice every month by Clive Roberts) I would urge you to come along and have a go. While there are some excellent players among us, most are complete novices like me but can still fluke the odd lucky shot. It can be a wonderful way of spending a few hours in very pleasant company. Could I urge you to note the date in your calendar and join us on the day if you can. Full details are set out below.

Amities, Rob McCombie
