A word from Jean-Paul Troeger, President of the 1rst edition of the FIBBA

2018 will see the birth of the 1st International Bridge Festival of the Arcachon Bay from April 16th to 22nd.

I am happy to at least have the opportunity to write these words today. Indeed, the creation of an event of this magnitude requires a lot of time and effort to its organizers, a small group of women and men who believed in this project.

I would like to thank the Mayor of Arcachon, Yves Foulon, and his services for their availability, kindness and efficiency. Without them, nothing would have been possible !

I would also like to thank the Presidents of the clubs: the neighboring club of Biscarrosse and the clubs of the Bay, Le Canon, Ares, Andernos, Gujan-Mestras, the Pyla for their active support and more particularly the Arcachon's club for its material help.
Without forgetting to mention the Guyenne Bridge Committee and its President Anne Dumortier.

I would also like to acknowledge the enthusiasm of the partners who are accompanying us on this new adventure.

Dear friends bridgers, come and have fun!
The Arcachon Congress is open to you!
Enjoy this beautiful setting on the seafront!
Participate all week long at the different tournaments very well endowed!

Our organizing team will welcome you warmly.

We wish you in advance a great festival embellished with a heavenly stay at the Arcachon Bay.

Jean-Paul Troeger,
President of FIBBA
