First Interview : Guillaume Denoix no comments

As we previously said on Facebook and in the First post, we’ll try to post some interview, with basics questions, because Old-School is about casual competition, drinking beers & meeting with friends.

The first “beta-tester” of this interview process is Guillaume Denoix, most of you already know him, met him or talk to on Facebook but you probably don’t know more, this is where the interview plays its role 🙂

So there was this blog and…. Rodolphe Ambroise also got the idea we needed like a “mascot card” (because we’re also sheep, not only french) so… Continues..
