Hi all

Can someone shed some light on this mystery?
On Sunday, as we were queueing for some Indian food at Kinara, we saw about 8 people hand-gliding over the picnic. It looked amazing.

Does anyone know who this was?

Thanks a mil.

Hi Laelaok, if you do a search for Electricnose and send him a PM, he will know!

Hang gliding was the only way to jump the queue at Kinara.

I was wondering what the fuck ye's were on about. Was it the place beside the Heinekin Arena, or beside the Beer Frontier?

For food i just went to where the queues were shortest. Im not queuing for an hour for a pie.

My mate made me go to OBriens in the campsite on Sat morn, Stood for about 45 mins, they ballsed up both our orders, overcharged me, then their power went out right after we got served. Poor saps behind us queued up for nothing.

Can't remember what time of the day I ate from it but only had to queue for a few minutes. Food was nice but wouldn't be bothered with going again if the queues were as long as they were most of the time

We went to that Cocktail Cocktail hole on the way in on Sat cause it was empty and we happened to be passing by. My mate got a cocktail and handed over a 50, got 22 back. He argued with the guy for ages and the manager came down. Said there was nothing she could do and asked him to come back at 1.30am when they closed.

He went back then and they had the shutters all pulled down and no one was there. He went back the next day and she said "I told you to come back at 1.30, theres nothing I can do about it now"

So they basically just stole E20 off him and told him to fuck off

Yup. Ended up with chips more often than not. Just could not be bothered. Sure I was too hungover/drunk to really enjoy anything anyway.
