Day 2 Varsity Boat Race



Welcome Dinner Varsity Boat Race 2008




It's good to have connection to internet cause i can update the blog during the free time. Unfortunately, we don't have that luxury free time. Dateline & result are critical & must update in timely manner. Otherwise, the participants will not able to view the latest start list.

Back to the topic above, we had dinner after the rain. Believe it or ot, all the comittee not having bath or have the time to clean up. Changing cloth n rushing to PICC. Funny... huhuhu... no one notice anyway.

Right after the dinner, we went back to tower to complete the racemark sheet. Only me, abg ujang (chief of umpire) & coach halim left. A lot of amendment require on participants list. It took until 3AM in the morning to complete. Fuh... soo tired & sleepy. I'm not driving back to Klang tonite... call my hubby then checked in to the hotel. No spare room for me so i jump on top of the bed with Kak Kamariah. No time to take a bath... that few minutes require for rest & sleep.

Chief of umpire review team list on double entry issue with Team Manager from Thailand University

Cool weather.. heavy rain... damaged boat ... capsized...

It's tough day but everthings under control. First Team Manager meeting being held to vote for the lane & heats at 3PM. We had the briefing & voting session. Last night, we have to stay back until 3:00am after the dinner. Last minute change by team manager cause a a lot of amendment to the list of participant and also to the race plan.

Some team managers trying their luck to have double entry on the favourite event but later we advise them to change the participant or withdraw from the event. I'm very busy with the result administration. Unable to join the crowd & enjoy watching he race.

It's quite tense up at tower with the conflict, data processing, umpire screaming at us etc. But most of the time, we laugh at each other & checking all the task carefully. A lot to improve and it's good to have all this automate some day like online registration and database.

well.. good luck all!
