International slinging convention 2018

I've booked my flights. Got a pretty good deal too.

Managed to get flights direct to palma from east midlands airport (20 minutes drive from me).
183 including 22kg hold luggage.
About 50 cheaper than they offered me last week Smiley

Only snag is I have to fly on the 26th. So will have a couple of free days in mallorca. As this is my one and only annual holiday, a couple of chill out days without the energy sapping routine of life On The Bus, is more than welcome Smiley

Also looks like Jaegoor will be there from monday too, so we'll definitely find somewhere to get some practice in. Got a couple of contacts I can hopefully get hold of.
I really want to try out a totally non-macho target slinging style.  It's just been too wet, dark and cold to even use the pipe target.
Pretty sure with a little practice, I'll get much better scores.

So that's current news - now need to contact pep and see about paying him in advance and which hotel we'll be at and whether it would be cheaper for those 3 nights to book it myself.

You lucky bugger! If I could get there that cheap I'd be in for sure!
Flying half way across the world to throw some rocks is on my list.
Please make some videos.

got new phablet - so will be taking lots of photos and vids.
Turns out a smart phone without a sim card (ie a: smart) is a really great little tablet Smiley
Cheaper than larger one, goes in a pocket and seriously nice spec.
Plus all the apps that refuse to install on my larger tablet install on the 'smart'.
I went for a doogee x30. https://www.amazon.com/DOOGEE-X30-Android-Smartphone-Cameras/dp/B076Q8N6PC/ref=s...
Mainly for cheapness - if you wanted a totally kick ass phone for 1/4 the price of  asamsung or iphone get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074PT27YT/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B074PT27...

I'll get a local sim when i get to mallorca.
And I'll put the uk sim from the emergency car phone in as well. Dual sim Smiley

Assuming we're in the same area - hotel wise - I know where the local phone shop is.
