Top marks for banging one out in the time allocated bud fnarr-fnarr :)

Seriously though good skills, I could see you tapping away furiously as the event was going on, there was no way I could keep up so took the easy option and gave up lol..

It was pretty mental but a lot of fun, I saw it as a challenge to see if I could manage it, had each beer posted live just before the next round, adding to the post as we went along.

The iPad and Blogsy made it happen, without those fab tools it wouldn't have been possible.
