So cold...

My hands and my bottom are freezing!

But what a turnout today - we gave out no less than 346 badges! And that is just girls and leaders, the parents and siblings didn't get one, so I think we probably had about 500 people walking round the reservoir!

While I was sorting the badges into packets and adding certificates and a water cycle booklet, five or six other Guiders were unscrewing water bottles and tipping the coins out then sorting them into 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p and even the odd £1 piles - took them 90 mins just tip and sort and that doesn't even include counting!

Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, there were niggles as ever: parking was awful including queueing out on the main road but we got them in as fast as possible and we knew that would be an issue because it is for every event there; people couldn't hear the div comm so we should have got her a loudhailer and finally one runner who was nothing to do with the event said the groups of girls just wouldn't move out the way for him - we should have warned the girls to move beforehand but didn't think of that. You live and learn though.

We can be pretty proud of ourselves I think and we can relax for a while...we don't have to organise anything as a district now till Jul 2009 so a year off before we have to start planning!
