The International Minimes Tournament (TIM) in Saumur is fast approaching! The annual Easter basketball event will take place this year on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th April 2017, in the rooms of Bagneux, Vivy and Jean Chacun (Boulevard Delessert) in Saumur. For this 14th edition, Saumur Loire Basket (SLB49), organizer of the event, can rely on its team of volunteers, who are currently finalizing the details … despite some unexpected!
It’s time for the final preparations … Christophe Zilliox, TIM’s chief organizer, gathered the volunteers of the various event committees one last time. On Monday 3rd April last evening, the volunteers of the Tournoi International Minimes 2017 were able to discover (in preview) the color of the tee-shirt, that is to say the red (photo opposite, backwards -plan).
A ton of details to be settled before D-Day
All the latest details were discussed: refereeing, catering, reception of teams, bars, communication of the event, distribution of t-shirts, shuttle management between rooms, setting of the last match NF2, hosting of the tables, accommodation at the Duplessis-Mornay high school in Saumur, animations of SLB (Saumur Loire Basket 49) licensees, management of the TIM newspaper, management of the 3 Saumur venues, The presentation of the trophies, the reception of officials and partners, the preparation of the Salle Jean Chacun, the rehabilitation of the rooms, the impact of the marathon route, and the organization of the TIM evening. Brief enough to spend a studious evening … not to forget anything before the beginning of the event! But “as every year, small stones remain present until the last moment. This is called the imponderables! Let’s hope that the experience of the organizers will be once again of excellence and will allow to propose a quality spectacle “hopes with all the heart Jean-François Abiven, president of Saumur Loire Basket 49.
