18 Days to Go!
12 Days to our first dress rehearsal with audience!
The night sky is filled with fireworks...
And I know one very intriguing secret...
Early in the Summer it was decided to construct the dome, which is a very good thing in the end. It will be used to enhance some of the effects performed through the ceremony. But the wind is too strong to move our props from the enormous barn to the garage adjacent to the stadium. To alleviate this problem, a wind tunnel was constructed. For those skeptical, the wind is so strong that when one walks along the side of the stadium, the air is pushing against the structure and blasting away at the sides so strong that it nearly throws me off my feet, sod cannot be planted, the building cannot be painted, and an enormous wind tunnel and wind block had to be constructed.

In the next few days, I will find out some exciting news that I hope to share with you at some point, however not so far in advance of the opening night.
Tomorrow I will be very nervous...how does one conduct hundreds in the singing of the most important performance of a country's national anthem?
