    Hi – I think you have mixed dates – the subject shows May 31 and the date in the text shows Sept 13-15. Also, is the location on the map correct? I looks like the marker is in south-eastern Spain, rather than north-western France.

    Best wishes – and thanks for these notifications, even though I can attend. Malvary in Ottawa
