Ben, you wouldn't have liked it, the sun was too hot, the beer was too cold and the women didn't have enough clothes to wear poor things! It was a weekend of utter hell. :kid_devlish:

We were made to feel very welcome by Quad PT who are The Portugese team. Great fliers, even better fun in the bar and JCD could be JB's twin brother. I watched him fly a ballet and he moves with the kite the same way JB does I didn't know whether to watch the kite or the flier!

Still, there is always next year..
