Just talk into this...

There was I thinking that I'd just be doing some transport and handing out leaflets...

Hopefully Mike will be publishing his photographic account of the weekend's displays at Rhythms of the World in Hitchin (North Herts' answer to Glastonbury). Clashes with other sporting acitivities prevented me from being there yesterday, but today the family's cricket and swimming were over in time for me to get over to Hitchin for the second day.

So first well done to everyone who came along - it was a good display, justifiably attracting a significantly larger crowd than the earlier folk dancing. A slightly larger arena would have been nice, but the two sides of the fence accessible to the public seemed full throughout - which was pretty good. We need to grab every chance we can to do this kind of thing - a hundred or more people will now know that there is a successful girls rugby team at Letchworth, which is one step nearer attracting more players.

Probably the only downside today (I cannot talk about yesterday) was the commentry - "John, could you go over and see the organiser" I was told. Having made my way round a mike was thrust in my direction - "take this, talk into there" - resulting in 30 minutes of improptu jabbering. Its amazing what rubbish you hear yourself saying in a desparate bid to say something - "Girls' rugby is a sport for everyone... Well, just girls obviously" - and that is just the one I remember! At least I didn't get anyone's name wrong... I think?

Anyway - the great thing about the weekend was that by and large the rain held off (a few drops on Saturday, nothing today), large quantities of leaflets were handed out, everyone enjoyed themselves, we all got into Rhythms for nothing ("artists this way..."!), and maybe - just maybe - one of those watching might come along and have a go next season.

Next year all we need to do is put it to music so we get on the main stage!
