I am aware of this Boris, and will be checking what the punishment is for naming players that don't turn up (I'll be insisting the entire match is forfeited if the player doesn't show) at the captains' briefing.

IMPORTANT!

Can everyone going please make sure they have the correct money in euros for their entry fee to give to me on THURSDAY EVENING.

In total it's upwards of 1000 euros, so I'd rather not pay it all myself.

well, apparently i will be doing the briefing. and cannot find fred anywhere :O also dont think that we will make any punishments for that, they just have to put him/her in the first place of encounter.

I had proposed to the EC that teams who name an absent player should be made to forfeit an additional match at the discretion of the opposing team - that would quickly put a stop to the practice...

Some interesting results...

Looks like Ziemann / Lyall fell out of the lucky tree today
- Win over Sorensen / Kvistgaard 5/4 - 4/5 - 4/5 - 5/4 - 5/3
- Win over Leulier / Blanchard 5/3 - 3/5 - 5/3 - 3/5 - 6/4
Placed 5th in Semi Pro Doubles, well done guys.

Joe Bundy and Sarah Brice 5th in Rookie Doubles.

Both Men's and Women's Team GB got the unlucky draw and got France, notable scores are Lyall / Dawkins going down only 10-9 vs Ramon / Fleurot, and Alex Shovelton beating Adel Yousfi, nice one!

The final is the Bonzini nations, France and Denmark.

Oh, and England won 3-2 vs Sweden.

What an unbelieveable final match in the mens final!

It was worth the 18 euros just to see that last match.
2 games each and the last game Adel yousfi one of the best french players against a young 18 year old quite unknown guy from denmark. Adel goes 6 -2 up(or maybe 3 not sure and looks totally in control). Only needs one more point to win it for the french . The young denmark guy is playing brilliant defensively but crap offensively with a rubbish 3 bar. He then changes handles and shoots a pin not snake shoots well from the back and the whole momentum of the game changes . Amazingly he comes back to win !!!!!!

awesome!

Jonathan Juel was amazing to watch last year. He was 17 had been playing for 18 months!!! and won junior doubles, rookie doubles, junior nationals and rookie singles and came second in the only other event he entered. he can shoot any style and has the most impressive mental game I have seen. hock digidy I wish this wasn't the 1st year I missed being there in 5 years!!!

So although Bonzini is famously French and fiendish, it looks like the rest of the world is catching up:

- Open Doubles 1 Moroccans 2 Luxembourgers 3 Portuguese 4 Danes
- Open Singles last 6 - 2 Danes, 2 Portuguese, 1 Hungarian, 1 Belgian
- Mixed Doubles Germany
- Senior Doubles Germany
- Mens team event - Denmark
- Womens team event - Denmark
- Senior team event - Germany

Amalie Bremer / Denmark is in the final of Women's Singles so if she wins that, the only trophy France get is Women's Doubles and even in that the winners were the only French players in the top 8...

I thought it was interesting that in the OS final both guys were shooting the snake. I'm guessing you wouldn't have seen that in the past before the TST handle system. Or do some Bonzinis come with more conventional handles?
