Anglesey week -The parties and other stuff!

Well Friday evening (the day we arrived) we were going to have an early night until me and Louise started on the cider (we are from the west country!), we were up until 3 and had to get up at 8! That kinda set the tone for the week really.

Monday was a rest day for us so we all took the dogs to the beach, they love it there and we quite like it too. We all went in the sea, up to our knees anyway and the dogs swam. The sun shone and there was nowhere I'd rather of been at that time, it was lush.

Monday night was the 'official' party or PODfest as it became known, they had a lady come in to do the entertainment. She's been coming for a few years now and is brilliant, she really gets everyone involved and shes got a great voice. She got everyone singing and dancing, not that are team needs much encouragement and along with the mad mutts we caused are usual chaos. I led the amarillo around the field for the 2nd year running... yeh i'm cool! Then it started raining and we carried on dancing in the rain, good times! We then all descended on high flyers base camp, where the party continued and the talk rapidly switched to flyball boxes. We really need a new box for the team but can't decide which sort to get, anyway everyone has a different opinion and I will discuss it in a separate post. About 2 we literally staggered home, still soaking wet and 5 of us carried on talking til gone 4am, it was the chocolate vodka that finished us in the end!

Tuesday we went to the leisure centre, went swimming and got to have a proper shower which was very much needed!

Thursday was the other big party to celebrate Louise's from High flyers 21st birthday. The weather was rubbish by then so we had it in the admin gazebo by the ring. Had a wicked night, quite a lot of people there and we played games and stuff. Me and Mark from my team did an allnighter, were hardcore. We walked to the beach at 5 in the morning with Carol (who couldnt sleep) and the dogs. Was really fun, I've attempted this walk on several previous anglesey encounters but we usually get bored once we reach the golf course and turn back so it was nice to finally make it!

So all in all we had a brilliant time in Anglesey, shame we had to come home a day early as I missed lee's birthday party :-(. Can't wait til next year although some of my team members won't be returning due to the behaviour of another team, such a shame when that happens.

I'd also like to give a massive congratulations to the High Flyers who carried on up to the Wirral when they left Anglesey and managed a fastest time of 17.13seconds making them top seed in the country! They also won the division :-).
