The final day and weather has improved over night, sunny with patchy cloud but it has stopped raining. We are busy with questions this morning and thankfully the child safety wristbands are as popular as ever, we came across more, which were buried under some bits and pieces on the stand.
My efforts to keep it clean and tidy lasts about 2 days then it generally goes to pot.
For those who have worked at the show this year, you will know that shop and drop had an additional location this year within the Members area, it has become apparent that there is also a need for showground Information point. Should that happen the volunteer will have to be appropriately dressed, but will be spending their day with in Members enclosure.
The individual classes have gone down well but a rather cranky old lady during some jumping was overheard saying; “Bloody Hell!, If I saw a fence like that, I'd look for a gate.” Oh well you can't please them all..
George (the friendly dragon [costume]) is in disgrace which is odd behaviour seeing as he is so well behaved during this show. Apparently he is a lovely room en suite with bars on the windows. I know this as he is entitled to a phone call, he is awaiting bail. I am not to sure what he has done but rumour has it there was a break in at the castle and some about corgis. I think its best that we do not know and have some deniability...
If and when he does get released, he will be made to stand and collect his bail money by our tent.
As ever I am grateful to my army of volunteers who once again have put in many hours to assist at Showground Information, they will individually update their community hours. We have been trying to work out how many hours everyone has put in this week, we wouldn't be surprised and if we include the Endurance as well, it will be close to 400 hours. That is a huge well done to everyone involved this year and we are so lucky to be involved with this premier Windsor event.
