No-one will really care which category you fall into, as long as you can skate and aren't dangerous.

I think Les Invalides is worth it. I didn't get a chance to stop and slalom there when I was last there, because we we passing through skate sightseeing, but from what I remember it was a lovely spot.
Are you going to the PSWC as well, or is this your only Paris trip this year?
Even if it's a tenth of the size than it was the last time I went (2005 IIRC) it's still worth going just for the spectacle and the size. It's crazy bonkers big.atlsk8r wrote: And I'm sure I'll do fine with the social bit. I just wanted to make sure you guys thought FNF was worth it, from a skating point (not just a social point), as I'd be reserving a whole night of a short
