International slinging event Ibiza 2022
Jul 14th, 2022 at 9:07am
 
Just got email from pep.

October 13th-16th. Thursday to sunday
So aim to arrive on 12th and leave 17th
so arrive on the wednesday (the worst day of the week for direct flights to ibiza from the uk) and fly back on the monday - which is usually not a problem.

As with last years, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Balearic slinging federation and is put on purely by pep and his world slinging federation (or whaterver he's calling it this year).

Ibiza's a fantastic island and the events are always an amazing experience.

So put politics to one side and try and go.

I have no idea what my finances will be like in october - they suck at the moment.
So no clue if I'll be able to make it or not. Sad

Flights looking around £260 with hold luggage.
But I'd have to fly out on the 13th and no midweek flights (tuesday and wednesday.

I'll have a word with pep and see if he could move it a day - flying on thursday to monday would probably be a lot easier for most people.
You could still fit in 6 competitions around the compulsory 4 hour lunch break ! Wink

Once again I won't be able to make it.  I have too many things going on this year already.  Maybe next year I'll get the priority on this trip bumped up and put more focus toward it.  I would so love to experience it one day.

So anyone got an idea who's going from Canada ?

It's a helluva trip from the us.
And unless you've got actual spare money, you really need to make it part of a longer overall trip.

It's a long flight and I always feel like crap after a long international flight.

I suspect marijuana probably helps, as the Guam guys just don't seem to get jet lag.

Last year it was called Thursday to Sunday as well, but nothing happened on Thursday. On Friday there was a minor event, main stuff was going on Saturday and Su day, when people from the other islands co.e. So maybe I will fly Thursday to Monday this year...

Well that's a first. You have to pay to enter the competitions.
That's not going to go over well.
And actual insurance - also new.

And I'm only about quarter the way down.

Oh and you have to wear culturally appropriate clothing for the team events.

God i hate bureacracy.
But there's always someone who's life isn't complete unless they get to throw a tantrum every day - so i can see his point.

33) All throwing styles and types of slingshots will be allowed.
34) All types of slingshots, of any material and made form, may be used.

Those two are definitely down to me lol
I've been moaned at for both, enough times over the years.
And they haven't even seen the printed tennis ball slings yet Smiley

Now we just need an: 'any kind of ammo allowed' and we're pretty much there.

I'll get some proper testing in with my polyurethane 'balls' this week.
Indestructible, good density, reclycable.
And basically lifetime usage until you lose them.
Not as cheap as clay or stone. But they'll last long enough to become family heirlooms.

Unfortunately I just don't see any way I can afford to go this year.

It's a toss up with starting a new business  and going on holiday.  I only have one set of money, so can't do both.
And if I don't start making money, I'll never be able to go.

On the bright side if the business goes moderately well, I'll definitely be able to afford next year.

I really wanna try get there . I’m close this year but it’s  big money for a  guy like me coming from Australia. 40 throws that count, and that’s probably over 100$ a throw for me easily .

the fees will be to cover the trophies in part - but mostly for the insurance.

If you've ever looked into event insurance - it's horrendous.

And for an event where stones are being thrown from slings (and it's pretty common for them to not all to go forward), the cost will be eye wateringly massive.

It's one reason I could never put on a competition in the uk using stones.
Just could not afford the insurance.
And a lot of people won't let you use their land for events unless you have insurance.

Everybody's terrified about being sued.

As far as I know, this is the first time pep's actually bothered to get event insurance.

Maybe someone got hurt, maybe the law changed, who knows. But that's why the fees are being charged this year.

seems logical. I'm sure the organization deserves more than appreciation too, also for ammo and targets.

where can I look for the competition rules? e.g. how the teams compete... (yes i don't know the rules)

how probable is it you are gonna be there? I'm thinking about it

I renewed my passport and done my tax return, if I get enough money and passport arrives in time to book flights I’ll be going . I have until September 30 to make the decision.

If you both are going it gives me even more reasons to get there

team competitions are fairly straight forward.

4 or 5 members in a team - only the 4 best scores count towards the total.
Teams can be mixed: men, women and juveniles.
Everyone throws at a 20 meter target.

Team with most points wins Smiley

And apparently this year, you need matching t-shirts.

That's got to be a non-essential rule as it's just not practical for a lot of the internationals.
