Day of Rest

I’m currently writing this offline and I can’t remember where I left off so if I repeat my self I’m sorry – no refunds.

The last notable thing I can remember that I haven’t mentioned is July 4th. Erm, yeah it was ok, not much happened but there was a great firework display in the evening after the rehearsal. Check this pic out:

A 30 second exposure of a part of the firework display. I like it! I really like the silhouette of the towers.

On 5th July we had the final rehearsal before opening night on the 6th. Everything went great until the very end when we lowered the temple.

One of the pins holding the temple together wasn't in all the way and so hit the frame of the stage and bent it. Fortunately, we were able to bring it back up and put the pin in the rest of the way and carry on as normal. The frame damage is still there but it's not critical.

Opening night was fantastic. Every seat was filled so people were standing at the back. All the stage cues we had to deal with went great – even taking down the temple. That’s all I can remember – it’s two days later now.

A bug. I just had to put this in because it's so cool. I have no idea what it is though.

A real picture! From the left: Tyler, Jake, Grant, Ed and Me. Shame I only got half my face but on the others I wasn't on at all.

You decide how good this picture is! Just in case you didn't know, that's me on the left and Tyler on the right. This is on the pre-show field. On the pre-show field there are all sorts of activities to before the show. The work crew favorites are dancing and tug of war.

Me all harnessed up to go in the cherry picker!

Me in the cherry picker. I was working with one of the sound guys sawing off the long bars that weren't needed on the light towers.

That’s all for now. I’ll keep trying to update more often because it’s easier to write when it’s fresh in your mind.
