Thought I'd kicked my BD addiction, but one more post can't hurt:
- Another 2 hours lying in a sweaty tent waiting for games to start?
(Aside - Is Jesper the only man with a reflective tent or do all you
kids have this stuff nowadays?? I must say I was most impressed.)
- No evening sun with a beer on the Saturday night?
- Get home at midnight on Sunday with no time for a curry and a movie
before bed and another week at dreaded work?
(Sneekies not even get home in time for work on Monday...lol)
errrrrrrr - no thanks Daniel, for once I agree with the (Bearded) One!
PS Needing recovery time from any tournament party is for g**ls. Win the
party and win the tournament.

Personally I am not a fan. Finishing late on Sat would not allow me to:
- shower and have dinner at a sensible time
- have a few beers
- and STILL get to bed at a reasonable time (must be getting old)
