Final Notes

The closing ceremonies are over, the fields are quiet and almost everyone is on their way home. Closing a contest like this is always a bittersweet time with everyone sad to leave the comeraderie and excitement but happy to be going home after so long in Rieti. I thought it was interesting to note the seating arrangements during the ceremony with the dignitaries in the first row, the Italians in the second and the USA in the third with the remaining countries seated in alphabetical order. We felt very honored!



So at this point I will say goodbye to all of you who have been reading this blog. Thank you very much to Stephanie whose behind-the-scenes work as our blog editor has allowed everyone to share in the competition. I invite you to stay tuned to the upcoming WGC in Lusse.

Arrivaderci from Rieti,
Richard
