All AEPC players, officials and significant others were treated to a warm Jakarta welcome at Fez Dungeon in Kemang last evening with Bajai, Ondel-Ondel and fireworks as they stepped off the coaches from their base at the nearby Grand Kemang hotel.
A very fine evening followed in the Dungeon with a speech of welcome from event organiser Mark Sims as the crowd warmed up on the various fuels on offer.
Fantastic buffet spread sourced from Jakarta’s best Indian Restaurant and some great Indonesian dishes from Fez’s own kitchen.
Boat races, mutual abuse, making friends new – and meeting old friends made at previous AEPCs were then the order of the day before the tables were reopened and some extremely competitive doubles and singles got underway.
A smashing prelude to the real action getting underway at 1pm today at the Grand Kemang hotel – don’t be late, you will find the schedule here!!
