    So here we are, the week thinning into a short friday night sleep; we get up early, jump in the car and head north.
    Fast forward in the evening, meeting people getting ready, singing late, building their courage.
    Meet, chat, eat, and a little dance. And a solid read, afterwards.

    Sunday afternoon, so - and it has begun.
    Awaiting his turn, assembling the team while being judged

    Fast forward a little, helmets on, facing the crowd
