Imagine, if you will, a day where the temperature reaches 39 degrees, then imagine a school hall, unairconditioned, filled with people...
And then imagine the main carpark at the school is closed - because there's building work starting - which entails parking some distance from the school then treking, in the 39 degree heat to the crowded hall...
And then imagine they'd run out of programmes so there isn't even anything to fan yourself with...*
But aside from that the evening went smoothly, and quickly, with lots of enthusiasm for award recipients and performers. One cub received the Maths award for Yr 11 while the other cub essentially received the runner-up Maths award.
And then we had icecream, and it was good.
(*Akshully, I was lucky enough to be sitting next to a lovely woman who was happy to share the air when fanning herself. Plus, we'd scored seats right next to the open doors so we benefitted from the tiny, tiny breezes that found their way in.)
