Lesley has sweated blood over this meeting, because this year she has found herself doing it all on her own. I wrote last week how our dining table is event HQ for Avon Schools and this year there was a YDL match the following day, which also had its own corner of the table.
It would have been nice to report that Yate won their home match, but that proved too difficult. This time it was boy hurdlers who fell. (What is going on????!!!) Daniel Brooks and Jack Holbrook looked impressive from my vantage point at the top of the timekeepers stand.
My call for volunteers, initially to run the results programme, resulted in eight people coming forward to help. So I must express my gratitude to all of them for playing a key part in making sure that the day ran smoothly. In particular I must than Sophie Reed and Georgia Taylor who operated the computer so that results could be published. In record time, I understand.
All in all, a very pleasant day’s athletics, though very windy. Lesley now as the English Schools team to sort out and administer. But an end is in sight. Sixteen days before we set off for France to watch the daughter compete in Geneva. Have I told you about that? You must be one of the very few!!!
