A Great Weekend

Had a fantastic time in Paris.

Was my 6th time over there for the Arc weekend, and I reckon it was about the best of the lot.

Saturday was a big bonus. Not a fan of Rugby Union by any means, but it was a great performance from England, with the added enjoyment of the company of a load of Aussies in the bar while we were watching it.

Great atmosphere in the city on Saturday night, think the whole of Paris turned out after they beat New Zealand...was a hell of a day.

Then to Sunday, a beautiful day weatherwise. Fantastic setting, only 8 Euros to get in and the racing as always was top class.

Punting wise it was a good weekend as well. Four of us there, sharing all winnings. Managed to get a couple of footy bets in on Saturday, 5 of the 8 winners on Sunday and landed two winning bets on the Argentina v Scotland game on the Sunday night. Paid for plenty of food and drink over the weekend.

Can't wait for next year !!
