I had counted on an assigned partner by the dates mentioned in the original post, to be able to look around for a nice gift for my partner and put together something nice, without being and feeling pressed and stressed because there's only little time to spend on it.
We are now March 22nd one whole week past the last date of the post, with a weekend coming up again.

That date has been moved ahead, because the French railway has decided to plan strike days on our travelling days to and from the convention...
