This is a PRE-REGISTRATION poll to discern the level of interest so that we know whether to enter one or two teams. It is not a commitment at this stage and an Event Coordinator will be in touch later to confirm that you wish to attend and provide fuller details.
Lille, France is an Open event for mens Sixties Plus (i.e. ages from about 58 to 75 and more) and is the first foreign tour of the year. A popular event that we go to with a strong Thistles ethos to play good hockey and enjoy a great social. France will field three teams and the home nations usually attend along with Belgium, Italy and other European countries. BTW Thistles have previously won this event.
Run over three days it is recommended you travel on the Thursday and depart either tea-time Sunday or on the Monday. For social reasons the majority stay in the Mercure Hotel at Lille Airport though some stay in Lille town centre. The event will start either early or at lunchtime on Friday depending on the number of teams. It is played as two leagues with playoffs on the Sunday usually finishing about 3.30.
