Training at the World Champs Venue

The venue appears to be awesome. It's a little like the venue for the Nationals in Wellington except that the "stands" are deeper and go around all 4 sides. I think we counted 7 rings with the traditional raised ring 1. Each ring has an elevated flat screen monitor and all rings are scored with electronic scoring systems which will make the whole event go much faster.

Lots of other teams are turning up in town... we've seen team members from Ireland, Canada, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, USA and Germany... possibly more... some at the vanue and some cruising around town.

I've been asked not to show photos of the whole venue but I'll have photos of the venue as soon as the event is underway.

Here are a few photos that I've picked out from the training today, including a few of other team practicing. They only had limited lights on so I had to use a lot of flash and, hating that, have converted many to balck and white which look better under the circumstances.
