I’m here at the WMC in Croydon Conference Centre, which has really good wifi, I’m told! I’ll try to update everyone with what’s going on here during the weekend.
Simon not being here is a great shame, but we’ve still got all the other hot favourites! I’m sitting at the front of the room (I always like to do that, there’s less chance of distractions), with Boris Konrad to my right and Nelson Dellis just behind me. They’re testing the spoken numbers at the moment, and we’ve got a big screen at the front of the room for the first time ever at the WMC, showing Jennifer’s statistics at the moment, but intending to have live timers created by Andy Fong during the disciplines! It’s almost like living in the 21st century!
Names and faces first today, then binary and hour numbers. For the record, I’ve done no training this year, and I’m just hoping to end up in the top ten.
I’m wearing a souvenir shirt from last year’s Memoriad, with “Mega Vitamin” logo and a picture of a brain cell on it. Tony Buzan has just told me that he drew the picture…
