Arrived at the hotel at 10am and checked in, it is already very warm and the room is not much cooler, decide to open the fridge door as it is better than the air conditioning.
12 noon and all the officials meet up to go to the pitch, its 10km away by car/bus. When we get there, we have a quick inspection of the pitch and come up with a plan of attack for the games, between myself, the TD and the UM we decide how we are going to run things like the 40 seconds on Penalty Corners etc.
After lunch we start player and equipment checks. This takes most of the afternoon as we check each team before their allocated training session. We get back to the hotel at about 7:30 pm just in time for a shower before the managers meeting starts at 8pm. By 9:30 we have made all the changes to the teams and updated the TMS ready for the next day. Time for a quick beer before the games start tomorrow.
