Hopefully I can make it this year.

Someone needs to represent for America.

depends who you ask.
If you ask an englishman, like me, I'll say it's like a good english summer. Shorts, t-shirts, sun glasses. Fruit growing on trees. Fabulous.
Particularly if you're coming from the 3c, grey overcast skies, wet swampy ground and general all round miserableness of an english winter.

If you ask one of the locals - who'll be wearing scarves, gloves, hats, padded jackets etc. They'll tell you it's cold.

So luis will probably pack his thermal underwear, I'm packing shorts and sunglasses Smiley

First year we went it was 27c - dave and I were sweating our bollocks off and the locals were in scarves, gloves and warm coats.

Personally I probably couldn't stand it in the balearic summer. So I'm glad they hold it in their winter.

You get the odd rain shower - but like I said, it's like a good English summer Smiley (which tends towards the wet side of life).

All relative really.
For m the weather's about right.
Though we did get bloody soaked one day last year. But wasn't cold, so no harm done.

Tell you tomorrow
Was completely brutal schedule, completely exhausted, physically and mentally.
Some good stuff some amazing stuff, a lot of slinging, new friends made, old ones reunited and the first Chamorro in history to break a slingstone on a diana in international competition. My new friend guelo.

Laters

Ps. Also bed bugs.

we had the invasion of the barbarians this year.

Jorn, jaegoor, christian, diego and Uwe all wore their reenactment gear (See, I didn't call them 'costumes' whistle  for a large part of the week.

Was good fun and the first time that diego had competition in the 'photos with the public' stakes.   
Surprisingly Uwe's bare feet got a lot less comments than you'd think.

Palma on the 1st march is packed with miles of craft and food stalls and many thousands of people thronging the streets.
Even christian with his dead sheep across his shoulders had  a hard time clearing a path. And that's one austrian mountain of a man - in his gear he wouldn't have been out of place in the original (and best)  conan movie. .

We have a target set up by the lake every year in a sort of cage and kids get to have a got with tennis balls.

We did a demo before we were allowed to go for a wander/drink. I put in two throws, first one went through the plastic and fencing, second one hit dead centre of the diana.
And then it was time to go find a cold Estrella damn Smiley

Well both david and i were getting up in the morning wiith bites we didn't have when we went to bed. I was on the 5th floor, he was on the 4th.
Checked when i got back and the longish red welts i had in a few places were from where a bunch of bugs git together and had a good munch on a particularly juicy part of my anatomy.
If i'd been less tired when i went to bed, it would have bothered me.

But i'll suggest to pep we use a different hotel next year.

Apparently there has been a massive increase in bed bug infestations in the last 10 years, with lots of new strains immune to the insecticides. Heard a radio program about the resurgence of bed bugs last year. Never realised i'd experience it first hand.
Hotel has been fine previous 2 years.

Emptied my suitcase downstairs this year and straight into storage Smiley
I presume others got bitten as well. I'll try and do a survey, think i've got most on my facebook friends list now.

Interesting. Who is this beast of a slinger with the 5 bullseyes? Wink Wink  Some say his name is Silvio, others say he's just a myth.
