| From the flag of Nadia Jarv (Flagger since 2012) |
I had the most fabulous trip. And just as you cannot express your gratitude, I cannot express my experience. To be honest, while your website and stated philosophy struck a chord, you never know until you get there do you. I was just hoping that I'd see some good cricket, get some sun and hopefully there'd be at least 2 or 3 people I'd get along with.
I could never have imagined meeting such a fine group of people; incredibly diverse and yet I loved almost all of them. Unbelievable really. I think you can take some credit for the great group too. A chat I had with my beloved Kenny one day made me realise that it's not just luck, or good marketing but great leadership that has really set the tone for the Flag. Plus you have a great bunch of repeat Flaggers who just encourage that great positive atmosphere.
My biggest regret is having only scratched the suface of getting to know but a few of them. In my mind it's the people that made the trip, plus a BRILLIANT finish in fading light! The hotel, food etc it's all secondary - though rest assured that was all fine!
The more time passes the more I realise just how amazing the experience was. I think you have to have Flagged to understand!
On the serious matter of karaoke song choices however, I think I have already provided you with enough feedback with respect to your John Denver repertoire.
Take care Luke and see you soon!
