Maybe I should plan an early holiday next year... 50€ a day for accomodation and all activities is more than fair.

Those of you who have been there before, what's the actual competition like? Rules, classes, etc.

the meeting will take place on mallorca.
The itienary will be absolute murder !
Pep does not believe in either sleep, or sticking to a schedule.
Mostly this is down to the spanish/balareian love of making speeches - at one meeting we hosted the professional inter island speechifying competition.  The minister for sport was there, as was the local mayor and various other dignitaries - all vying to out speechify the others. For my money, pep took it by a whisker. But the local woman politician was apretty close second.
Think that one went on for about 2 1/2 hours by itself.  It seemed longer.
None of these guys are in castro's league - but they're getting there Smiley 

On that occasion, after the speeches we were escorted to our restaurant by the local paralympic competitiors, dressed as demons - complete with huge papar mache heads and banging drume.
It was unbelievably surreal and at no point were we given any kind of explanation about what was going on.

Usually while these things are going on, myself, david and some of the guys find a nearby alehouse and get a few cervesas down our necks Smiley
Or in the case of Christian, a few cocktails - he carries an entire bar around with him Thumbs Up

So you can guarentee that whatever it says on the official schedule, by the time you get to an evening meal it'll be at least 2 hours later than it was supposed to be Smiley
But on  a good day you'll be too drunk to care  dancing banana

The trip is worth it !

Competition wise.
we had 3 or 4 last year.  I only really remember the one I got a trophy in Smiley
Some are for everyone with seperate categories for women and children.
Some are for teams - which are mixed: men women and kids,
I'm hoping to bring some vikings with me and have enough brits there next year to field a team., we'll see.

Some of the competitions are for locals and internationals and some are for everyone regardless.

All competitions are done in 5 shot rounds, at 20 metres for men and teams and 10 metres for women and children. 

The guys and women are the nicest friendliest folk you could ever hope to meet and best hosts ever. Even jaegoor's a good bloke in person Wink
Just don't try to give him fake fanta !

It's a complete and total blast - please come.
There will be a lot more information forthcoming in the next 6 months. This is the earliest pep's ever announced a meeting by about 5 months.
usually we get about 3 weeks warning.

So this year there is no excuse !

well david always has a running commentary on his facebook page - I'm guessing now he's got his google pixel - it'll be working overtime this year Smiley
He's very keen on slo-mo videos and it does take pretty good ones.
You just need to remember that he's not there on his own lol

Assuming there's wifi in the hotel I'll probably post some pics from my tablet as well.

Ich sollte meinem Freund sagen, das er nicht so hoch werfen braucht.  Cheesy aber es stimmt . Die Scheibe muss höher.

doesn't look like we can field an english team this year.

But we could make up a slinging.org team. Hubert, christian, jaegoor, me and david (we have to let him play or he'll sulk) - we'd stand a decent chance I reckon Smiley

Got my new short sling and going to do some practive before we fly. Minimum Goal this year is to not blank in any comp. 

Pretty sure I've just been using too long a sling in the past. As all my misses have been high - bang on target, just high. Short sling should fix that.

Also see how I get on with the clay balls and the balearic target.  75% average hit rate on the hill fort with them. And close to 100% at 20 metres. But that was totally different targets and conditions. So we'll see.
Yep actually taking it seriously (well almost)  this year Smiley
