May actually be better for me. And nothing booked yet, luckily I am one of the lazy ones who leave it to the last minutes...

Best regards,

Hi,

Vlad have told me this just few minute ago ... The bad news is I can't go to Bievres at 12-13th June ... the good thing is I can visit Ikskele (Latvia) fair on 7th June ... I'll do my best to change my schedule an to come to Bievre on 13-14th June. What do you think - is it the last date change this year?

Best Regards,
Aidas

I certainly hope so! It just cost me $800 in penalty fees to change the air fare to the week after since I was already book on the flight for June 5th..... Damn elections and damn air lines!! I really hope you, Aidas, and everyone else can make it! Don't give up!!

oh no ... $800 is a certain price for very very good and rare soviet camera indeed ... To say the truth I can't understand why European Parliament elections is the reason to change the date of our meeting indeed ...

Aidas

Vlad,

$800 penalty fees?? They are crazy! Normally it would possible to change the flight without costs when it is so far in the future. I was able to change my flight to Australia 4 weeks before leaving without any costs. So try to speak to the airline or you booking agency. $800 ist robbery!

The change of the date is not good for me too. I am in the first two weeks in France, so I planned to visit on the weekend 6th/7th. But our flight to Germany goes back on the 14th at high noon from Toulouse so I don't know if I can visit Bievers.

Ulrich, it's this Air Lingus airline.. the tickets were cheap but they were non-refundable.. I guess they get you on these change fees... It was about $530 change fees and the rest is difference for the airfare... spoke to both the agent and the airline, they cannot do anything ... so I paid it, have no other choice.. oh well, at least I'm going to Bievres so I'm happy about that! Looking forward to seeing all of you there!

Vlad.

European politicians, Vlad, not only the French ones!
The elections will take place at the same time in the 27 states of the community.
But of course, sorry for you. And not sure I will be free a week later...

Amitiés. Jacques.

Hi Jacques,

you can't miss this entertainment! If I rememeber correctly, I have promised you to assist you in choosing an early FED at Bievres this year
As I have said before, I'll do my best to be there. Yuriy Davidenko is ok with the new date, I'm sure Viktor Suglob will be ok too, so hoping to see all of you soon!

Best Regards,
Aidas

Hi Aidas!
No problem to choose an early Fed (1b without clip), but problems only to find one at a decent price.
I would be grateful if you could do it for me even before Bièvres! (I miss a Red Flag too, but we will see that afterwards!...)

Of course, I will do my best to be at Bièvres, and not only for cameras...

Amitiés. Jacques.

Oh please everyone try to make it, there is still 5 month before the show I can't believe you can't reshuffle your schedule!! This is once in a lifetime opportunity to meet fellow collectors from all over the world! I do not even know when would be the next time I will venture out to Europe, and I'm sure it's the same with a lot of other attendees. So please do try to be there! I honestly could not care less about the photo-fair, I want to meet everyone who I've been talking to for past year and a half!

Vlad.

dear friends...
you know ...Europa politics rule are one thing...but french mind is another one (little bit different )
Europa contries are not United States country too

but in my mind, it is realistic to defer the Fair : this is a good indication about foreigners tradesmen success
