Currently going through the covid travel regulations.
No wonder the flights are so cheap, the bastards do not make it easy.

At the moment the trip hinges on whether we can get an approved covid test on the Saturday or Sunday.
If you don't have a negative test within 3 days of you return trip, you get fined £500.
Sod that.

On top of that, you need either a covid pass or recent negative test to leave the UK. I've got the pass, so that's okay.
As well as at least 2 forms to fill in both outbound and inbound.

This is for countries on the UK amber list.
Countries on the green list are a lot more straightforward.

So I'll hold off booking the flights for a few weeks and see if anything changes. Meanwhile asked pep, to check we can get the proper PCR tests in ibiza.

so after a bit of research:
Getting a pcr test (the much cheaper and much quicker antibody test is not accepted) is easy to do but it costs 100-120 euros.
And takes 24 hours to generate a result.
So we'd need to take the tests on saturday and then hope the results came back before monday morning.

Do I trust ibizans to work on a sunday ? yeah, not so much.
Given that you can't actually take the test on sunday - what's the odds the processing labs are working when the front end isn't ?

So at the moment I'm holding off booking the flights. I'll wait out september and see if anything's changed by october Sad

Hopefully ibiza will be added to the green list.

I can but hope.

One of the few benefits of being self employed is that I don't have to book holidays in advance.
The downside - no holiday pay, or sick pay, or regular pay lol

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


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. 


Thank you for the compliment Alex.

Actually it is not exactly Catalan, but similar
It s called Mallorquin and Ibizenco, respectively.

Catalan is spoken in Catalonia, basically the Province around Barcelona, and they call it a separate language. To my understanding it is very similar to Spanish, only a few letters per each word changed. For me it sounds like a mixture beween Spanish and French, pronounced sometimes in a Portuguese style.

The language became important there when the Catalonian Prince Jaume led the reconquista of previously Mauric Islands in the middle ages.

Well some news in the UK.
It looks like we no longer need a test to get back into the country.

Countries are now either lawful good or lawful evil.
No more neutrals.

Or red and green, no amber.

Not sure if we still need a negative test to get into Ibiza.

Next official review is 1st October.

Guess they're not one of ours.

And dogs !

good .luck mate Smiley

Looks like it'll be a great event - t-shirts even !

Mind you it looks like pep's started without everyone anyway:
Quote:
Today, Monday, October 11, we have presented this International Shooting Meeting with Honda,
This is the "2nd Shooting World Cup with Honda Mateu Cañellas Roca".

The J.A.S.A. The organizer of this event wants to pay tribute to the former president
for 30 years of the Balearic Federation of Tir de Fona, mateu Cañellas Roca.

There will be several days of competition where between 150 and 200 slingers will participate, arriving
from various countries, Austria, Germany, Holland, England, Switzerland, USA, France, Tibet, Cuba etc.

Also from several autonomous communities; Andalusia, Murcia, Valencia, Catalonia, Madrid,
León, Navarra, Aragon, Cantabria, Castilla La Mancha etc.

The presentation ceremony was attended by a female team from Austria "Amazons Slingers", who
last year they were already in Mallorca

Also present was the sculptor artist Antoni Miquel Morro who is the creator of the figure.
that we will deliver to the World Cup Champions, it is a beautiful sculpture of
iron, is a woman waiting her turn to sling.

The runs are all this next weekend, although there are several other acts that will take place
carried out on the occasion of these recreational-sports-cultural-historical days.

The runs will take place in Sant Antoni, Santa Eulalia, Sant Carles, Sant Josep and Es Cubells.

Among other visits we will have an exhibition of ball pages by Sa Cola de Sa Bodega.



J.A.S.A ?
No clue what that stands for.

150 people - he's going to need 2 busses.
That would seem like a lot, be intertesting to see how many there actually are.

It's already been fantastic. Yesterday after I arrived I met up with Channing from Practical Paracord and his friend Ryan and we went training for... hours. Not sure exactly Cheesy Played some practice games of 5 rounds each and I didn't totally embarrass myself and even won a few rounds Cheesy Already done better than last year. Going to go out training g again today with the Austrian team (which I think I will be joining as their 4th member) and Uwe.
