We are so proud of our friend Vinnie and all his altruistic activities. He’s always somewhere really interesting and has now amassed a huge wardrobe of uniform polo shirts and accreditations, as well as a very impressive CV.
Last week he was at the Trampoline and Tumbling World Championships in Birmingham, which sounded very exciting , but we expect like our job in rush photocopying it had it’s ups and downs.
He had to look after the photographers ….
….. and book in visiting members of the media from all over the world, and put their media packs together …..
….. which involved quite a lot of photocopying (for which we trained him well!) …
….. He had to make sure that all the “journos”, as he likes to call them …….
…… had all the latest results, facts and figures as soon as they happened, if not sooner…..
….. which also had to be filed away ……
…… using a very sophisticated and complicated system.
Vinnie was also responsible for seeing that all the journos received adequate sustenance. Vinnie said that having to watch and count how many times world trampolinists bounce up and down all day, especially when they gather up speed, not only gives you a cricked neck but can also give you a thirst, especially if you go boing… boing …. boing as you count!
Having to sample the daily supply of Danish pastries and muffins to make sure they were without a hint of staleness was an onerous task, but like everything he does, Vinnie embraced the challenge every time he passed the catering facilities, in order to ensure that the highest standard of refreshment was maintained!
Vinnie had a 7.00am start each day, but he said it was all worthwhile when he looked down on the empty arena floor before any of the bouncing started. He said it was very romantic and gave him a spine tingling thrill being part of all the pomp and circumstance. He also confessed to a secret hankering for one of the mahoooosive flags as a souvenir, to use as a “bedspread” on his bed! What is he like?
