I don't do whatsapp.
if you think I'm giving my mobile phone number to a faceless multinational conglomerate - you've never met me lol

I do facebook messenger and that's as far as I'm prepared to go.



Facebook is way more likely to violate your privacy than a phonecall, CA.  Just saying.


nope.
That's just messenger and you can switch that off.
It's not about privacy (that and 'rights' seems to be a mainly american obsession) - I just hate the telephonic aspect of telephones. And I really hate being hassled by machines.

Ibiza is good - should make that, be great to see elvis again - alas he can't come to mallorca (elvis is sonia and marco's dog).
Plus we enver got to the hippy night market last visit.

But not holding my breath yet - still a looonng way to go before october.

Ok, so if there is some sort of virtual international competition via livestream... when will it be?

For distance, what about a tennis court?  If a target is at the back of no-man’s land on one side and you throw from inside the other no-man’s land, you’re at 20 yards, which is just under 2m short of a 20m distance. Regulation tennis courts can be found all over the world, and it’s easy to see that the distances are correct.

We need some kind of handicap for jaegoor. He actually suffers from competition nerves - why he doesn't win everything and has yet to score a perfect 40 points in competition. On his home range - well we've all seen how he slings at home !
Pretty much unbeatable.



These guys are in Berlin.  I'd pitch in some money if we want to hire them to play at Jaegoor's sand pit Grin

LOL!  That is so distracting.  Just post the GoFundMe link and I'm in.  Wink


In regard to the competition, I'm in as long as it's something I can set up in my yard.  Balearic target, no problem.  20 yards, no problem.  I think any location should be fine as long as the distance can be demonstrated in the video.

I'm not sure about a live stream though.  That would have some of us slinging in the dark.  Assuming there is the widespread participation on the forum that we've seen for some of the challenges.

20 METRES NOT YARDS.

Yards are a little shorter than metres - so no cheating Wink

It's definitely easier to find a field than a tennis court.

Wouldn't know where to start for the latter.

And yeah the vuvuzela guys would be ideal Thumbs Up

livestream probably not realistic.

so we'll have a week in march when qualifying videos can be posted.

You can get 20 meters on a tennis court, but 20 yards is already marked, so there's no other visual verification needed, and it's within 10% of the original.  If everyone switches to 20 yards, then if you don't have a tennis court, you are in the same boat of having to figure out how to prove the distance, but anyone with a tennis court can just start slinging.
