Turin Acro Cup 2019 - Finals

This is my favourite photo to take every year, all the staff, volunteers, speaker and superior judge of the Turin Acro Cup.
There’s something special about going to a place so many times that you already know three generations of some of the families. How to describe Turin Acro Cup to those of you who’ve never been there? Imagine an acro competition in the Summer, the venue has natural light, is in the middle of a large park and you can easily have some italian ice cream. You take your meals at a local restaurant. The relaxed nature of the organisation results in a nice atmosphere throughout the competition. Sometimes you are not very sure how crisis are averted, but they are! At other times the medal ceremony is interrupted because dogs are fighting in the stands.

I could go on but in reality it’s impossible to describe the feeling of being at the Turin Acro Cup. Your kids will be happy, that I can guarantee.

I would like to thank Marco and Erica, Margarida and Wiliam, Mattia and Eleanora, Manu S. and Manu B. and the other mammas, Paolo, Beppe, Andrea and rest of the staff that I may be forgetting, all the volunteers, all the judges and even Niels, for another great experience.
