BUMP!!

C'mon guys, i'm sure you can afford an hour of two out of your busy lives to join us for scintillating conversation and lots of wine!!
Perhaps you should have arranged a pyjama party????

Never mind. The company will be good, even if it is small!

True - four and a half - I thought some more would have signed up by now. Most of the Geneva people haven't even met us, so it can't be about our characters ... yet.

Face it, it's not the people, (well, for the most part) it's the location.

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

I was at the Armes tram stop today meeting somebody .. I didn't think to look at the venue.

Indeed it's just 10 minutes from Bel Air though

BUMP!!!

But i think we have reached the number. Don't think I'll bother reserving a table. There should be enough space for 4 or five of us.

Looking forward to it, even if the company will be but a select few!

At least we're doing better than the miserable EFers in Berne.

Speaking of which, I wonder if we could meet anywhere closer to Cornavin. Or is the place Patsy picked close?
Same here - we have to come over for a meeting early afternoon and could make it later for drinks - but I am really not sure I can convince OH to go to Carouge. Shame.

#18 tram door-to-door.

Otherwise (depending on what time your meeting is) I could meet you around four four-thirty for a coffee or something.

Meeting in Ferney-Voltaire at 14.00. Going by car. It will be hard to persuade OH to stay in Geneva unless it it easy to get to and park.

Good point that last one! Where's a good place to park, Patsycat? Is it place de la Sardaigne? Used to go there for posh lunches with clients in the good old days... Are there spaces in the evening? Oh God, it's all so long ago...

Sardaigne should have spaces, otherwise Place d'Octroi which is also underground, it's smaller but nearer to Place d'Armes. Both now have large luminous signs telling you if there are parking spaces free.

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

Odile, you could park and get the 18 tram at the trainstation. It's only 10 minutes in the tram. The traffic at 6pm is horrendous!!.

Anjela, not the 14 tram! That one goes to the Devil office of the OCP!!
