Five Days to go

Well we are nearly there, five days to go to the biggest show on earth. Well for Pentathlon this year anyway. This is a blockbuster. Not been to Crystal Place this week myself but the spy tells me that it has been an exciting week there with all the big hitters there to set out the stall so that every blade of grass is in order when the athletes and punters arrive. The deadlines are all but done, the kit is arriving day by day and the volunteers begin to arrive from now onwards. Health and Safety is high on the agenda (how boring?) but at least we will all be safe. The computers are all tested, the timing practiced and the shooting range is about to arrive. If you want to see and get amongst the real Chipperfields then volunteer to help next week, they will be flexing their glistening muscles in the August sunshine all week. The UIPM is excited.

Maybe as part of the build up, who knows, Heather Fell the World number one woman Pentathlete is to appear on the National Lottery show live tomorrow. What a warm up?

More blogs, as much as I can, all next week with pics from between and behind the curtains.
