  4. Hi everyone at Berwick Lodge,
    Well, it’s raining here this morning in this beautiful city of Pamplona – just the right weather for our first practice session before registering this afternoon at the convention centre along with all the other teams.
    We all enjoyed a great dinner together last night in the main plaza and met some other teams. Everyone is well and the excitement is building. Will keep you informed.

  5. Good luck and I hope you all have an amazing time in Spain. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hi Everyone,
    What a great day we all had. More mingling with the teams from the 42 countries represented here – 96 teams in total! Lots of singing, dancing and chatting and of course some serious practice. The Opening Ceremony was fabulous – great entertainment, a very timely reminder of the core values of FLL and of course the wonderful sight of our children being introduced on the main stage with the Australian flag. Tomorrow is the big long day of competition. I’m sure our team will acquit themselves well. Have taken lots of film and photos to bring home.

  7. Thank you for keeping us informed. We are all thinking of you..Can’t wait to see Ctrl Alt Delete in action on live streaming… Good Luck!!!!
