P.W.A. Event Cancelled As you may have read in the footnote to the Bit of Salt article, there will be no P.W.A. World Cup windsurfing championship at New Golden Beach this summer - for the first time since 1993. This is a great shame for Paros and we are disappointed that the government has failed to provide the necessary financial support to the Theodoridis Brothers for this international event which certainly puts Paros on the world windsurfing map.
Despite the fact that they have suffered serious personal financial loss, they are now trying to confirm another event - the Formula Windsurfing Paros Euro Cup 2001 to take place from October 3-8. For further information, contact Yannis Theodoridis at tel: 41878, www.pwa.gr, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wild Flowers of Paros A note from Anna of Holland:
Dear readers and flower friends, It might be a little bit surprising, but Id like to let you know that the rest of my Wild Flowers of Paros are a secret of my book which I plan to publish in August 2002. Im also happy to inform you that you will soon be able to find some of my aquarelles of wild flowers (in colour) on the PAROSLIFE website. Thank you for your interest in reading my articles, and greetings from (Flower) Anna.
We at Paros Life would also like to thank Anna for her beautiful work over the last two years. She has provided us not only with some fascinating knowledge of our local plants and flowers, but also with an insight into nature in a much wider sense. We very much look forward to seeing the book when it becomes available.
Famous Faces on Paros Sean Connery visited the island during the month of July and we expect to see Costas Karamanlis (leader of the New Democracy party) and Costas Simitis (the Prime Minister and leader of the PASOK party) in August.
