Saturday 15 june 2013

Yeah, I'll be there. Hope to see as many of you as possible there. Last year was the best yet!
Jack Batemaster
Je suis très occupé …
Steve
Quelle surprise.
rob fritz
Can't wait !
Alan
Have to get to Bordeaux for Vinexpo by Saturday evening. Which seems to take all day. But I'll be around on Friday. How about fondue for a change?
Steve
You'd better leave us with an Apple map of how to get to La Discrète! On second thought, maybe a Google map…
Alan
Damn, how could I miss that? I recollect that a lady has agreed to re-enact the Dejeuner sur l'herbe there this year.
Steve
Last year it was so nice there that nobody wanted to leave. But we did have what was likely the nicest weather of the last 500 years in that part of the world!
Patlow
Beach house for a week with the family vs. a weekend in Boveresse for me…

Hhhmm…

I am a selfish prick.

Tick, tock.
sbmac
I've yet to make it, and was really hoping to meet some of you guys, but I'm in Paris with my boy in July.
can't afford two trips. One of these days…
Jack Batemaster
Peut-être que je serai à Paris en juillet aussi.
Steve
Alors, tu n'es pas si occupé dans ce cas-là!
Jack Batemaster
Je serai très occupé jusqu'à juillet …
pierreverte
Yeah, moi non plus…
Jack Batemaster
Donc, je suis sûr.
Marc
Scheiße!
No more hotel room available this year. I'm trying to find a plan B.
I can only take bookings for the fondue at this time.

Pour Jack:

Merde !
Plus de chambre disponible cette année. J'essaie de trouver un plan B.
Je peux seulement prendre les réservations pour la fondue pour le moment.
Jack Batemaster
Je comprends. Zut alors !
Marc
Plan B found. Limited number of rooms, contact me ASAP.
Jack Batemaster
Je suis encore très occupé, mais merci Monsieur Chaussette® !
Patlow
In.
Steve
Yay Pat! Don't bail this time, OK?
Patlow
Don't worry. (And don't remind me…last year sucked!) See you there, my friend.
Steve
Looking forward to it!
Patlow
My plane ticket is to Zurich, so we could have Sunday Guinness pints at that Irish bar again! #bookit
Steve
Zürich is super convenient for Boveresse, but this time I am flying in and out of Paris CDG because I booked an award ticket in first/business class, and I have other stuff to do closer to Paris before Boveresse.
Patlow
#FancyPants!
Steve
I can't wait to see everyone in June! Who is coming who hasn't commented here yet?
Jack Batemaster
Je vais être très occupé …
Tibro
Is it true that there'll be a battle-seasoned medic there?

That seems like sound planning.
Steve
Tibro, you coming? Rumor has it there will be some good American HG to taste at CAB's.
Tibro
Are you making me an offer? The guy with the unmanagable-bohemian-alpine-meadow hair may not be able to make it this year. Should I come prepared?

Or are you merely suggesting something more Grim?
Steve
I'm not sure I completely understand, but that's often the case. I'll PM you.
Tibro
Okay, so I'm obese and obtuse.
Ugly is a given.

Life is good. And the lusherer the life the gooderer it is.
Boveresse isn't impossible.
Provenance
Mebbie you should give the ugly back
Tibro
I'm just grateful not to be bald.
Provenance
So is everyone who sees you.
Tibro
A gleaming pate can compensate for other ills. Some say it's a sign of virility.

I wouldn't have the stamina.
Provenance
Said the biker.
Patlow
Changed my flight to come in a day earlier to get some pre-party rest.

(Marc, I'll be in touch soon if I plan to spend the day in Pontarlier.)
Alan
For those arriving early, we are planning to go the secret fountain in the forest, leaving Claude-Alain's at 10:30 am on Friday.
rob fritz

Alan, that sounds like you will not be around too much on Saturday.
Jack Batemaster
Il sera très occupé …
Alan

Alan, that sounds like you will not be around too much on Saturday.

Every other year, the world's biggest Wine and Spirits Exhibition (Vinexpo) clashes with Boveresse, and the travel options between Geneva and Bordeaux are terrible. So, I am not around much on Saturday, but I fully intend to make up for it on the Friday!
Patlow
I hope I can make it to Couvet in time for secret fountain drink. (Staying in Zurich the night before. Maybe I can get first train.) Leaving from hotel?
Alan
Leaving from the distillery.

Leave Zurich 8:04, change at Neuchatel, arrive at Couvet Station 10:12. Come straight to the distillery (10 minutes walk). Let us know if you're on the way and we'll wait a few minutes if necessary!
Patlow
Thanks Alan! (I have Marc's mobile number.)
Steve
I'm not sure Marc's number will do you much good. I kind of doubt we will be there that early on Friday (I'm traveling with Marc). You should get Alan's number.
Patlow
Good lookin' out. I will.
Patlow
Planning to film a base jump off of The Creux du Van! #staytuned
Alan
Before or after dinner?
