After travelling all night to get to Portugal the guys were happy to see that the hotel was exactly as described in the brochure.
They were all soon down by the pool taking in the sun and playing a new game of Aqua Rugby (Full rules to follow).
FRIDAY 5th May 2006
Breakfast on the patio was followed by the Fishing Trip -sailing from Vilamoura Marina-Unfortunately a few people 'Missed the Boat' and had to stay in the hotel all day. They missed a great trip.
SATURDAY 6th May 2006
It was Fancy Dress Fiesta Day in the resort thanks to the whole of the tour making a great effort to dress up-Best Fancy Dress Award went to Mike Morris who came as his mum-Worst Fancy Dress was Nelly who just turned up in his workclothes!
One of the highlights was seeing Osama Bin Laden being hunted down and given a good shoeing by the Dynamic Duo!

Rhiwbina v Vilamoura
The only cloud on the horizon was the prospect of playing the local rugby team in 35 degrees of heat whilst heavily hungover. Surely it could not get much worse....but then the ref turned up.From that moment on our fate was sealed and although we only lost 12-7 we were never really in with a chance. The heat took it's toll with players fainting left and right and with the opposition being a little on the tetchy side we were ever so glad to hear the full time whistle to retire to the bar to have fun and games with our opposition and swap stories, songs and jokes long into the evening.
Then it was all over as we boarded the plane the next day and flew back to the UK.
