INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S RUGBY TOURNAMENT ON SATURDAY 24TH AND SUNDAY 25TH OF MAY 2008 VERDUN – FRANCE
first , I would like to introduce myself . My name is Nathalie Pouzenc , I‘m French , I am in charge of the ladies rugby teams in the north east of France. I‘m organizing for the third time an international tournament ( 20 euros/person entry fee required ) taking place this time on the Spring bank holiday week-end in the populous city of Verdun in the heart of the most important events of World War 1 with the most famous battle of the century . http://www.verdun-tourisme.com/
There are different ways of coming to Verdun ( in the northeastern France ) :
1 / Fly to Paris and then take the train ‘TGV MEUSE ‘ ( only 1 hour journey ) at the ‘gare de l’ EST ‘. This way would be a great opportunity to visit Paris at the same time. If you book a long time before, the prices are really cheap . http://www.cg55.fr/cadredevie/tgv.html
2/ Fly to Bruxelles airport ( 2h30 from Verdun ) http://www.ryanair.com/site/FR/
3 / Fly to Francfort ( Hahn ) airport ( 2h30 from Verdun ) http://www.ryanair.com/site/FR/
I ‘m looking for ladies rugby teams ( SENIORS) to join us . There will be 5 foreign teams and three French teams . You just need to ask your federation for the permission to tour overseas and to send it back to me .
In a few words , I’m going to tell you how the week-end will go just to give you an idea (more details in the entry form )
Satuday : teams welcome – sightseeing –night at the hotel
Sunday : breakfast , lunch , game , a snack after the games
The night at the hotel , breakfast , lunch snack are free.
If you are interested or if you know someone who could be interested please send me back contact details .
My e-mail address is : email@example.com
This will be a fun and social event !!!! Good time will be had by all. Last year was a big success , we had teams from England ( the Wasps and The Old leamingtonians ) , from Ireland ( the Portlaoise ) .
