Satellite into UKIPT Marbella today!
The UKIPT team have been onto us to write something about the upcoming UKIPT Marbella event. We're going on holiday, they say. The UKIPT is joining up with the ESPT, they add. So what? Why should we right about that? Everyone knows that there's a €1,100 UKIPT Main Event going on in sunny Spain by now. You do know about that, right?
But satellites are running now and you've got to qualify soon if you're going to get to Marbella for 12 June on the cheap, they exclaim. Well, yes, that is worth flagging up, I suppose.
And there's the welcome cocktail, free party and chance to run around like a maniac shooting pellets at one another, they suggest.
Now you're talking!
