More from Nancy Hobbs about their trip

Today it is raining. Even with the rain it is lovely and calm. There was a slight fog and mist over the vineyards which flank all parts of the mountainside. The region is best known for its pinot noir wines and after Sunday, the World Trophy. We had our first team meeting last night before dinner. Everyone attended and related their years on their team, their hometown and also the first rock concert they attended, or a little known fact. It was enlightening with rock concerts from Ozzy Osborne to Arlo Guthrie and little known facts to include missing a record on the water slide of 80 plus hours. Matt Byre finished fourth in this fine competition with the winner sliding for like 85 hours. Everyone will wave American flags at Saturday parade including our five supporters^. Today will be the team photos and more course preview. All of the other teams arrive today. >There were 50 or so at dinner last night and at lunch today we expect 250 and by dinner 500.
More later,
nancy in sierre and crans montana
