The Haggis Prep continues...

Yippeee, another 5 Haggis entry forms landed today, and they're all logged into my spreadsheet, taking us up to 33 entries. I seem to have hurt my back, no idea how that happened, but as a result I've been propped up at the computer most of day catching up with writing and admin work so I've had plenty of time to muck about with the spreadsheet. I love the AutoSum button, don't you? Captain Bill's route sheet for the run also arrived today, so now I can carefully inch over to my not-top-of-the-range 3 in 1 printer / scanner / copier machine and run off about 40 copies. Think I'll need to set it up and sit down while I wait. Then between us, Mrs BC and I can make up the rider packs with the route sheets, food tickets, instructions and all necessary details. Oh yes, then there are the mugs to take care of...I've got to, er, sort them out, somehow, and the marshal packs to finish. It's actually quite hard writing instructions for the checkpoint operators, as I have to imagine every possible situation that could arise, and detail exactly what to do and when to be there, oh, and where to be....if only I knew!

Anyway, I hope my back is on the mend by Sunday or it won't be much fun at all, and if I'm still sitting here tomorrow, bolt upright with my fist stuffed in the small of my back, then I look forward to watching Kawa's video of Cubbie racing around the lanes of Scotland. Well, I mean, I'm looking forward to it anyway, but all the more if I have to be in the same chair all day.

Don't forget we've got to move 20+ sheep a mile down the lane sometime soon! Any volunteers to man the gateways? Nope, thought not!

Ok Mrs BC I might nip up on Saturday if your needing a hand, but don't blame me if they head for the woods.
This movie making lark ain't as easy as I thought, at this rate it might be finished in the wee sma hours

Sorry Mrs BC, 'fraid won't be much help with the sheep herding, small
thing called work gets in the way.

Hope your backs better GBC. Nothing worse than a back that plays up for no reason and gives you nothing but pain.

I'd help if I could Mrs. B.C. but I'm a bit too far away. Hope the Gorgeous Biker back is feeling better ;-)

I guess a pain in the back is better than a pain in the ****

So c'mon Stu, are you going to tell us what or who it was that took so much of your time in Hampshire? C'mon, we won't tell anyone else...

Thanks to Kawa for a great video, well done.

Who's a nosey little G.B.C. then?....lol ;-)
Ok, I've got miself a new girl, found her on a dating site inbetween visits to your blog, so we visit eachother at weekends although we are 220 miles apart. Her name is Cheryl and she has just invested in a bike jacket and helmet, so I had better dust the Bonnie's pillion seat.

Hope all goes to plan on the Haggis Run.

Good luck on your Haggis GBC.
The weather (at least in NE England) is fine, sunny and cloudless - even the winds have abated.
It bodes well for the Haggis & my Colonial.
Have a nice day.
