I had a look for you, but didn't recognize you without your camping stuff and a mountain in the background. :roll:


Hey, I didnt know you were going... wouldnt you recognise me if you met me again?? I think I probably look the same with wolverhampton in the background as I do with a tent or a mountain :lol:


That's what I thought. :D But it was really crowded, I wasn't wearing my glasses, and I wasn't really sure I was going until Sat morning.

I stayed mostly in the main hall, with a detour to listen to a band and another to watch a cooking demo, and wore my Starling badge incase any one would notice it. They didn't. :lol:

[quote="ned"]Popped along for a few hours and mainly sat about in balcony bar 1 - some weirdo had people rolling on tennis balls :P Picked up some chcocolate cake (and a couple of other bits and bobs) and then felt bad about eating it after listening to pat reeves :( I managed to finish the second piece this evening though :D


Oooh. The cakes looked awesome... but I resisted. 8)

I missed the tennis balls. Sounds fun. :D



On a completely unconnected note, but while I think about it. I was surprised to find in the goody bag a flyer advertising the event. Seemed a bit odd as, to get the goody bag, you had to be at the event already.

I was the instigator of those tennis balls :twisted:
I've finally finished the write-up of our day it's at http://www.veganbodybuilding.org/wolves10.htm, no pics of the tennis balls in action (although you can down load your very own "cause yourself pain with tennis balls" booklet on the page :P (actually soft tissue work for improved performance & health). Hope everyone had a great time? It was my first time in Wolves (not that I saw much!), but the people seemed quite friendly (even talked to some Wolves football supporters on the way home who seemed ok - even if they did seem to think I was Robert Plant :roll: ).

Looking forward to the London CWC next month!

I was quite impressed with how many people volunteered for the practical stuff - I was sort of tempted but although I do work with a foam roller at home I'd been having a rough few days and didn't fancy needing help to get up off the floor afterwards :P Will definitely be picking up a tennis ball to complement the roller - that work to the back of the shoulder area looks rather good!

If you need some reminds of what we did you can download the booklet we used from:
http://www.veganbodybuilding.org/events/Wolves/10/myofascial%20leaflet.pdf pdf version
http://www.veganbodybuilding.org/events/Wolves/10/myofascial%20leaflet.doc word doc version

Remember to read he contraindications on the last page & if you have any issues consult a doctor or medical professional before trying these out.

I was there, great day - helped friends who were running Ethical Wares store and Hillfields stall. Wandered round, chatted to friends, spent all day deciding which bit of cake to allow and found a fab tofu choc pie :D

Saw the press up comp, looked good!

Heres to next years festival - all I heard was positive feed back from visitors, stall holders and my non vegan/veggie friend who went.

I bought a dozen chocolate cream eggs from the Hunt Sabs stall, and ate the lot within 24 hours !

:shock: :mrgreen:

So I had a pretty good time..........

I am now the fattest cyclist in the village.
I eat to nourish my compassion, not my greed

I'm the man they couldn't kill ! I cannot be destroyed with conventional weapons !

And probably the former fastest British Vegan 10, 25 and 50 mile TT rider. Probably.

Was the Ethical Wares store on the far right hand side as you went in. If so, I tried on some walking boots. If not, sorry I missed you!! :D

Oi, you two, behave. :D


On another completely unconnected note: I was talking to someone at work today about vegan food and a chap listening in to the conversation mentioned the festival. It turns out that he was there, too.
