Flue-Fest 2019

Flue-Fest 2019

Forget Glastonbury, we’ve just come back from our annual Flue-Fest gathering for Fluenteers and their families. It’s become something of a tradition/talent to predict the hottest weekend of the year and set up camp at Wicksteed Park for non-stop food, drinks* and some competitive Kubb action.

In the spirit of an Agile-style retrospective, we thought we share our collected learnings from this year’s experience:

  • Trying to ‘organise’ a large group of adults and kids is a mostly pointless exercise
  • There’s a direct correlation between the amount of food available and the number of people gathered around it
  • Attempting to out-climb your kids on a climbing wall (or any other activity requiring a public demonstration of athleticism and flexibility) is just foolish
  • Rollercoasters stop being fun when you’re 18
  • No one drinks red wine in super-hot weather unless it’s in a Sangria
  • £1.60 is the cost of being right. (Alan - if only you hadn’t pointed out to the lady at the kiosk that 3 teas were unlikely to be £3.20)

*Unfortunately Ben’s latest batch of Special Flue-Bru didn’t make it past quality control (so he claims) so we’ve given him till the Christmas curry to perfect his technique…
