It's finally arrived - RWHS week. Today is an easy day or should be but causes me the most stress when really it shouldn't. Its picking up Passes day. I arrived on Site about 1030 made my way to the xxx, I had my ID and went in and 10 minutes later all good. No problems - pack as it should have been - all the passes.
Tuesday 8th May
Back on site at 11am to set up. I had arranged to meet up with Dennis who runs Shop and Drop. Once I had done as much as I could I then checked in with the organisers. After a meeting I was then back at the tent to finish the set up. At 3pm I finally left site.
Wednesday 9th May
I got up and arrived on site at 0650. I had to drop off a few more items and at that time I was allowed to park on site, which helps. Just after 0700 I was liaising with the organisers and got all of the information which we should require over the week. We were now fully set up and all right to go. I then finished the setting up of the tent.
I went for a wander and found myself by the Copper Horse arena I could see a “pack of Press” clearly concentrating on someone so I thought I would have a look myself. Well I could see several suited and booted and definitely some security but could not see anyone else. I spotted one of the organisers and said to them who are we supposed to be spotting in that area. They gave me the eye which implied, 'was I really asking that question'.
Her Majesty The Queen was the reply, I looked again and there she was, in casual clothing which is why I probably hadn't spotted her. Ah yes of course, obvious now. This shows how tired I am and truthfully it is only day 1.
Bendicks are here again and like last year they have agreed to donate all of their collected silver foil to our Rotary Club.
George (the friendly dragon [costume]) has been brought over. He is not happy at the moment and has decided to hide himself under one of the tables. We have made the decision to leave him whilst he is this foul mood until the weekend. He snorts every so often, not sure what has upset him so much.
The weather should be fine all week and I am looking forward to a glorious week at RWHS 2018.
