A number of you have already inquired about the next « 48 heures » scheduled on 7,8 and 9 September 2018. Some of us would like to add an optional day on Thursday 6 September which would start from Chaumont, include a stop in Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises « in the footsteps of Général de Gaulle » and arrive in front of Troyes town hall in the evenning. In order to organize this day the best way possible, we would appreciate to have your advice before deciding if we dot it or not.
