BEAUTIFUL KELSO (I'LL TAKE THEIR WORD FOR IT)

Where's my Sunday gone??

Down at Kelso today for the 7th and last leg of the Borders XC. Beautiful weather, absolutely stunning location, a lovely course and a great crowd........or so I'm told.


A stunning location....apparently

I was helping out with the results and only saw the inside of a windowless little committee room in a nearby rugby club.
Didn't get a chance to chat to many people either - though I did get the chance to talk to everyone when, unbeknown to me, it was decided that I would do the announcements for the presentations.
Anyone who has heard me doing this type of thing before will testify that I'm possibly one of the most sweet-natured hosts you could wish for, and make Bruce Forsyth look like a rank amateur.

My criteria for a "successful" event are pretty simple, and I set the bar quite low to be honest. Runner enjoyment etc all take a back seat when it comes to what's top of my check list...
  1. Did anyone get killed? - No
  2. Were there any serious injuries? - No
  3. Is there anything we could get sued for? - No.
Then, it was a successful event.

Though at one point there was a bit of a problem with the results when =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP($A3,'7 Results'!$B$3:$J$406,8,FALSE)),1000,VLOOKUP($A3,'7 Results'!$B$3:$J$406,8,FALSE)) was wrongly transcribed as =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP($A3,'7 Results'!$B$3:$I$406,8,FALSE)),1000,VLOOKUP($A3,'7 Results'!$B$3:$I$406,8,FALSE)). Oh, how we laughed.

Got home and went out for a brisk nine miler before I sat down to finalise the results and put them on the web. It's now nearly tea-time and after that I'm looking down the barrel of the start of another week at work.
