So today I got to do assembly. Well I’m saying today, but I’m actually writing this post on Wednesday night. So at time of writing I haven’t actually done the assembly….!
Confused…? You will be.
“So I did assembly today, my first in a couple of years. I was a little nervous, as I’m not a great speaker, when I try to be funny, people don’t get it.
Which I find weird. As everyone loves Monty Python right…? And I’m English. Go figure.
So anyway, I introduced myself, talked a little about the snowboard team and what we do on a daily basis. The different disciplines the athletes do, halfpipe, slopestyle, boardercross, slalom and giant slalom.
I gave some interesting facts about snowboarding and the team.
For example: What is the most common first name of athlete on the snowboard team over the past 8 years ?
Chris….. We have had 6, and if you include me 7
I finished the assembly with a short video, (which I tried multiple times to download, with no success) explaining that it was all film with a $129 Sony webbie camera, and edited with iMovie 6.
Surprisingly there was thunderous applause and a standing ovation….!
Oh yeah the assembly hasn’t happened yet. Lets just hope…..
By the way the pictures are from 2 event I went to with the Snowboard Team this weekend. Just thought I’d put them in to add some color..
Until next week.
