Hi! Stéphane agreed again to meet fans in Verona Meeting should be on Saturday (October 7) around 12. Inside the Arena, as usual.
Hope to see you all there!
A little rules-reminder:
- This will not be an autograph/photos session, but a chance to meet, speak with him and ask him your questions. - The main language of the meeting will be English, as we will have fans from all over the world. But please, feel free to interact if you want to say something, even if you're not sure about your English abilities! None of us is mother tongue, none of us is an English teacher Stéphane will be probably the only one of us with a very good English, but I promise you that he will not judge your language and, if you are not able to translate something, please tell, we will help! Of course, "translator's job" must not be done by Stéphane himself, but someone else will help. I can translate from Italian, if someone wants to volunteer for other languages (or is quicker than me with translations from Italian), please tell. - You don't have to speak if you don't feel like doing it, you can even just listen, don't worry - We will have photographers, so please don't take hundreds of pictures, don't make him (and us) feel like at a press conference. Of course, if you want to take some, you're free to do it, but don't use flash.
Most important: - Be respectful of everyone there, and above all try to think about him and how he can feel meeting so many people at once.
Very Very Nice to answer to this new post. Surely I Will be there for the next time to Arena meeting See you there Anna, you and all of you could come I could take videos but not for all the meeting long . . .
Thank you very much for this organisation! I'll be there and I can record video 😊
Thank you, I will be very grateful. I'll be sitting here dying of curiosity to know and see what you all were talking about and what and how he was answering. I'm glad this tradition keeps going. It's been 5 years since the first small meeting on the stairs. How time flies.
Everyone, enjoy the meeting tomorrow! Be ready that Stephane might be late. Don't worry, I'm sure everything will go well and you all (and hopefully Stephane too? ) will have fun! Don't be shy and ask questions! He is not coming for you to look at him, he is coming to talk to you and get to know you.
Those who can't be at the Arena with you will wait impatiently for the news.
This forum is very quiet for last - a few, many? - months, but I really hope that people who go to the meeting tomorrow will find time to write here a few words. Because every year I see more than 30 people on the photos, but hardly five or six write here something afterwards. To tell the truth, it's upsetting and really demotivating to try to organize something like this again.

If it is not inappropriate to put in a request, I hope someone can ask about how Stéphane came to be coaching Diana and Koshiro and how that is going!
As someone who lives in North America and has very little chance of ever going to a fan gathering, I have to live vicariously through you all. As a new fan, I am VERY grateful for your efforts, Reut, and everyone who posts and keeps the forum going!
