Yes, successfully made it, didn't get hit this year but got splattered though. Won't be making the mistake of wearing a white top next year. Looks like I may have been near McRackin at some points of the proceedings.
The event was, for the most part, more organised than last year. Bit of difficulty with what the MC described as 'drunk non-locals' that tried to muscle into proceedings, especially one guy who came as 'Rambo', which amused everyone to be fair. But it was made clear this was for locals only and it seemed to be sorted. Only disappointment, the Carthaginian contingent didn't arrive by boat this year, quite a sight last year.
I should have taken a photo of the Romans catapult in action, was an implement of genius. The event was filmed so I hope it will turn up on the internet sometime.
