We caught up with Steve Carter from Thundersley Pirates to get his view on the tournament, what he loves about it and why he keeps coming back:
CFB: Hi Steve, thanks for talking to me today. As someone who has been to Caister for a number of years I wanted to get your thoughts on the tournament and what you love about it.
SC: No problem.
CFB: How many years have you been to Caister?
SC: This year will be my 20th!
CFB: Wow, a real veteran of the tournament, you must either love it or be a real glutton for punishment! ha
CFB: What is it about Caister that you like?
SC: Atmosphere 100%
CFB: What is your favourite memory from the tournament?
SC: Too many to mention…!
CFB: What are you looking forward to most this year?
SC: Same as every year, catching up with all the old faces and seeing what craziness Baddow Eagles get up to this year!
CFB: Would you recommend the tournament to anyone who hasn’t entered before?
SC: All the time, sometimes people are sceptical when you tell them how good it is, but once they have been, they soon realise why people love it!
CFB: That’s great, thanks for spreading the Caister love!
CFB: Is there anything you would change about the event?
SC: Not really, would be nice to be closer to the SportsPark but all things considered it’s a great venue and the accommodation is perfect too.
CFB: Ah that’s good to know….thanks!
CFB: So finally, do you think the tournament is good value for money?
SC: I think it’s fantastic value for money!
CFB: We’re glad you think so, thanks for talking to us today and we look forward to seeing you in a couple of months!
SC: See you soon! Can’t wait
