Italian ISR randonneur - incomplete address
« on: April 26, 2020, 09:19:09 am »
I have a returned ISR card from a member of Audax Randonneurs Italia.  The address is incomplete, so postie unable to deliver.  On his application form he only gave a telephone number, no e-mail address.  Is there anyone with good Italian who would be prepared to phone this rider to get a full address so his ISR award can be sent to him?  HK

Google translate what you want to ask into Italian then send it in a text message?

It's a land line I think.  Using google to do this is messy.  I speak French and am very aware that these don't get it quiet right most of the time.

From what I see on the form he doesn't speak English.  I am a kindly person and would prefer not to embarrass him by trying to have a conversation in a language he doesn't understand.  Therefore someone phoning him in Italian is my preferred option.

Plus it actually isn't my problem.  I've inherited it as a middle man and as I say want to be kindly to a rider who has achieved a mega award.

HK, I guess that Tony Lonero (US randonneur living in Italy) or Simone, the Rando Imperator, organiser will be very willing to help. They might even know the rider in question.

My partner is fluent Italian, so happy to call if you'd like.

Send me a PM with the details.
