Thanks very much for that awesome Opportunity I got. Didn’t work out for me, but congrats to the earned winners. Chapeau. Was an honor to be competing with you. And for the Hookah battle itself- very cool. Interesting throughout the battle- well presented Stan and Benni.

My only minor „complain“- as a participant it would have been a bit better if there were some timing announcements: „15 min remaining till the battle“… so that there isn’t such a hurry before the battle to get the Shisha working.

But all in all- very cool event with cool people to connect.
