PMA 2000 – Las Vegas Canon event

papillon_helicopter_over_vegascirque_du_soleil_bellagioThe 2000 PMA,  Las Vegas was a great excursion Canon took us  on a Helicoptor ride over Las Vegas Strip followed by Dinner at Osteria Del Circo, Bellagio Hotel and then into the Cirque Du Soleil “O show” at Bellagio Hotel. What an experience. Myself and Mike Elliott were falling asleep in the show which was spectacular, but food and wine followed by comfy seats in a darkened room don’t go well together!

PMA 1997 – New Orleans

PMA  1997 was in New Orleans, United States. We went over four four days flying Continental London to Houston Flight CO 5 Seat 38F and Housten to New Orleans on Flight CO 1631 Seat 25A . We stopped in the Marriott

Agfa invited us on a Dinner Jazz Cruise  on the PaddleWheeler Creole Queen and we took ourselves off on Captain Terry’s Swamp Tour on Esperanza Plantation.

I was so ill on that trip from a weird flu like sinus infection were my eyes where weeping and I had the most intense headache.

Memorable moments were the what seamed like plastic alligators on the swamp tour, Roger coming back from a night out totally enthused by a man who could play a tray with his fingers, and Warren playing the flaming Sambuka game and not realising you don’t span your hand out when placing it over the glass.
