“Saloufest”Locals not amused by drunken British students
Many residents of Salou have been outraged and appalled by young British university students drunken behaviour,when over 5,000 students between the ages of 18 and 23 paid just 220 Euros to attend this “sporting” event in Salou.
It should have been a five-day sporting event, but many students were not doing much in the way of sporting activity. Many were curled up on the floor nursing hangovers.
Only 24 hours after the event had started nine people had been treated by paramedics for drunkenness, while five were treated for alcoholic poisoning.
Local residents were begging for their local town hall to do something as they were concerned that such a wonderful place was turning into a cheap tourist resort, As many of the residents were waking up to be greeted by vomit and urine covered roads.
However the town hall hit back blaming the media , and that they had done more harm than good, and that journalism had damaged the image of Salou and it tourist industry.
The organisers Ilovetour said that this festival was in its tenth year ,and thousands of university students have enjoyed taking part in the13 different sporting activities including Rugby, netball, hockey, football, basketball, water polo, and lacrosse.
“Ilovetour has the full backing of, and works closely with, the local council, the regional tourist board, the local police, the hoteliers association and a large team of specially-trained resort staff to ensure the event runs smoothly.
