Half way day and, whilst I was still in bed, friends and colleagues were making their way to the Great Park for Endurance. The day looks good for them - not too warm, not cold, but most importantly no rain. I am sure that Chris and others will report back on their day.
For us, I opened the tent at 7am after I had delivered more chairs. We had lots of helpers yesterday at both shop and Drop and Show Information and I had ran out of chairs so at 0645 I was dropping these off on to site.
Most questions we have had have been quite easy to answer, though we were asked all about the Royal wedding and the person asking couldn't understand why Showground Information didn't have anything for her. Still as ever we were polite and directed her towards the RBWM website.
Her Majesty the Queen was here again at the Copper Horse arena, showing in several classes, I am told she has done well again in winning in most of them. It did make me wonder whether a Judge would ever be brave enough to award the prize to someone else?
Becoming a regular feature at the show is the food court area, this fabulous little area showcases local produce and award winning food One of those companies is the Supreme Sausages. This company sells lovely sausages that are very tasty and sometimes have unusual flavours.
On an unrelated note George (the friendly dragon [costume] ) was missing first thing this morning. I am never concerned about this as he is free to stretch his legs if wishes too. He came back a few minutes ago, with a fully belly, muttering something about sleeping off his midnight snack....
As ever I am grateful to my army of volunteers, who once again have put in many hours to assist at Showground Information.
