Sunday was the day when the phrase ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try try try again’ came very much into its own.
All those who would have come on the Saturday had the weather gods refrained from unleashing the years quantity of water on us, came on the Sunday.
Sunday was covered in sunshine, no sign of rain, and lots of results to be decided.
With all the jumping close to the Organsier’s Office where I was based, suited up with coffee, bacon butties and a great view – I was set to be the more cheerful, exhausted member there!
From all the work that had happened throughout the months leading up to the event, nothing could predict the excitement that I experienced those few days. From being helping count out things, to answering the telephones, to being entrusted with doing announcements, to prize giving collection… to meeting my hero – Mr Bramham himself, William Fox Pitt.
It was all fantastic, a frustrating cliché but it was fantastic.
Thank you Jane, Laura and Nick for giving me the time of my life!
