International Slinging Event Ibiza 2021
Mar 30th, 2021 at 7:20am
 
Poster attached.

Given that most of europe is heading back into lockdown for the summer and due to eu government incompetence, they did not order enough vaccines - there is no certainty that the international will happen.

If it does I'll do my best to make it this year.
I like ibiza Smiley
We could actually go to the hippy night market (actual name) - that would be cool.

So all things being equal, we'll be optimistic - but it is what it is.

Not sure I'd be booking flights just yet.

And someone better tell pep he's spelt schleuder wrong Smiley

I'd love to go someday! How did they choose which non-Iberian flags to place in the poster? Just random countries or do they have slinging populations?  Huh

Well... Pep is very enthusiastic about adding flags. I mean, I'm not even Finnish but he did imply that if I put myself down as Finnish then he could add the flag to the poster...  Grin

I will not be able to make it for those dates (assuming it happens, and I could make arrangements to go).  I already have a ticket for CigarFest on that weekend.  Sad

If it does happen, I can't wait for the videos everyone posts!

So why don’t we just have an online International competition?  I just had a special tape measure made with markings 25% closer together. I would love to have an opportunity to actually use it.

The flags are actually not random Smiley
They are all from regions/countries of past competitors.

And yes - apparently spain is comprised of  a lot of little 'country states'.
who knew noidea

I think in reality it's actually  split into catalonia and everybody else Smiley

The first language on the balearic islands is catalan.
Which is like spanish, but different.
Christian could probably explain the differences- he's the best linguist I know.

I mainly asked because I saw Cuba on the list. Being Cuban myself, I've never encountered a Cuban slinger. However, most Cuban men I know used slingshots when they were kids which is hilarious considering the lack of rubber. Sometimes they searched through hospital dumpsters in search of rubber. If they knew to make slings, they'd probably have an easier time. Well, now that I mention it, I have encountered a Mexican who used to sling when he was a child. I think it was to herd some animal I don't remember.

then at some point we had a competitor who identified as cuban.
Or - knowing pep - maybe wore cuban heeled boots.

Or once ate a cuban sandwich (reuben ?).

I do remmeber the bolivians, but can't off hand recall anyone introduced as being cuban. So who knows Smiley

Then he would be happy adding another flag to the poster if I manage to go there. Cheesy
