Well I am home from the Worlds final. I am absolutely shattered after the week but happy I went. I got to judge the EFL final which means I have now judged every type of final at worlds and euros. Anal I know but its nice to have the complete set so thank you Derek.

Art Ward and whole org comm did a fantastic job and the week was a great success.

Anyway tomorrow I will in through the posts and try to fix and format and spelling problems.

I have over 2000 photos at Worlds. That isn’t actually that many when you consider that my camera was set to rapid fire up to 15 photos in a couple of seconds. That allows me to avoid the worst effects of blinking, waving and gesturing that debaters tend to do right as you try to take a photo.

I have uploaded around 200 photos to picassa. You can find them in the photo section to the left hand side.
