As I was very late for posting Messigny results, I was also late for sending
the Champagne 2006 theme to Dirk Borst (2 days ago) and it is not yet
published on the Wageningen site.

So here it is, but please note that, according to the wishes of the Congress
organizers, the tourney is opened only to people that will be present in

Best wishes,
