Well, it started yesterday, and I can tell you it is as good as it gets. Tropical temperatures, sea breeze, sunny, awesome equipment, lots of people & great views. What more can you ask for?

I still have 5 more days to go, and I know everybody will go home with a big smile on their faces, once this is done...

Here are some pics for you... hope you'll enjoy them. More to come... 8)


Pic#1, yours truly... wink

all excellent photos, Ivan...please keep them coming...

isn`t it amazing how we all become such great guys in real life...as opposed to what we`re often depicted as in certain other over-moderated forums like CN...
