Tone proving he has nothing to prove by easily claiming the support trophy. Quite appropriate, as the trophy originated from Tone’s 25th Birthday indoor go-karting race where he beat Peter Reid for outright victory, and now he holds the trophy again for his upcoming birthday.
SOLDIER OF FORTUNE II
Deathmatch around the pool: R 30 D 24 T15 W11 F 01.
An excellent evening and fine kick-off for Tone’s holidays. As penance for Part’s no show, he will be taken on an extended interstate RL mission with Tone and entourage. This will involve aircraft transfers, a 24,000 feet night parachute drop into uncharted territory behind enemy lines, followed by an intensive 11 day training course in intensive heat, involving the highest G-force producing machines on the planet, an introduction in withstanding water torture devices, unruly children, even more unruly women folk to contend with and wild exotic animals to confront. We may not make it back alive, if not mentally scarred for life, but … a lesson must be learnt … turn up, or confront your fears.
Next mission won’t be held until at least September 26 – further advice will be posted closer to date, meanwhile, view more FANTASTIC photography by Tone, visit his new Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/edgetas/
Until next time … adios!
