168 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes and counting until France…

Jet2.com logo.Delighted to say that the flights and hotel have now been booked.

A total of 6 paid the full costs by the deadline, so the squad to go to France is:

  • Kevin Cooper
  • Matthew Alldis
  • Ed Cook
  • Davinder Sangha
  • Dave Gourlay
  • Chris Dixon
Others showed interest, but failed to make the payment, and with prices constantly rising, it was deemed necessary to book the flights and hotels sooner rather than later. Anyone can still come along, but will have to book their own flights and hotel (Jet2 and Booking.com recommended).

The selected hotel is Hôtel des Flandres located in a convenient part of Nice. The hotel is a 20-minute walk away from Nice’s Old Town and just 250 metres from Nice Train Station and a 15-minute walk from the beach and the Promenade des Anglais. It also offers free Wi-Fi access throughout and a 24-hour reception with luggage storage.
 
The rooms are two triple rooms sleeping three each. Sangha, Cooper and Alldis in one, with Gourlay, Dixon and Cook in the other.
 
 
Hotel cost is: £488.51 (£81.41 per person)

Total costs
 
Flight budget went over the expected amount. This brings the combined cost to £312.97, which is approximately £3 less than intended.
 
Now begins the task to find opponents. We already have several contacts, including two or three who are helping us (local football associations, radio stations and an ex-pat newspaper), so we should be able to gain more solid information in the next few months.
