An unscripted glimpse at the Canadian Equestrian Team's athletes, supporters & fans before, during and after major games. #CanadaStrong

A few random pictures

Tina and I arrived early today at the venue, but then quickly parted ways.
Tina to go to the box office to see if she could pick up the Friends & Family tickets for this afternoon’s showjumping, and me to the Venue Accreditation Office to make sure that our 3 Venue Passes were in the system. With all of yesterday’s activities, I forgot to hand in the forms for the Venue Passes for 3 of our support team members. Every day I need to hand in 3 forms by 3pm. And I’ve been great at doing that every day….except yesterday. It was about 7:30pm when I realized my major slip-up while Tina and I were getting changed into clean clothes for dinner. Tina now knows that I can swear like a truck driver. After many calls and texts, the COC and the venue organizers were able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and today when I arrived at the venue, the volunteers were able to confirm all 3 passes. Phew!!

Tina was not so lucky at the box office, which is still closed, and so she’s on her way with some last clothing exchanges to COC’s Outfitting station before heading back to the venue to try the box office again.

In the meantime, I’ve come to our “office” at Devonport House (Grooms’ Hotel) to catch up on emails and post a few pictures for everyone.

The sun is shining, there’s a lovely breeze, here’s to Canada kicking some butt and getting redemption today!!
