    fees

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "fees" in:

    {Hello our favourite viewers and welcome to your favourite extreme fees}

    That was said by an announcer in a program about ICF Freestyle World Championships 2009.

    Thanks a lot.

    I think you may have misheard. It means nothing to me.

    Are you sure you have heard "fees"? Maybe it was "feast". That would make much more sense to me.

    Then what it would mean to you?

    I tended to translte it as "extreme sport" since they are talking about free kayaking. But if you can kindly help, I will be grateful.

    Thanks.

    Re: fees

    I can only assume that it should be 'frees', for 'freestyle sports'.

    I strongly agree with you. That's how I translated it, too.

    Thanks a lot for your effort. It's still a start, though I hope the episode is not so technical
