Turned up at the big grey hut in Knightswood Park not really knowing what to expect. Was asked to takeover on reception. (That meant I was sheltered from the heavy cloudbursts! I also had a good view through the back door windows of the races!) Spent the next six hours directing people to the toilets or the first aid room, telling people they couldn't bring their bikes inside, and switching on the kettle for the tea. During my break I wandered round the grounds to visit the Glasgow 2018 stall - blagging freebies, as you do - before using my meal voucher for the stone baked pizza. Had also been given a packed lunch and bottled water, so my hunger and thirst pangs had definitely been catered for! Special thanks to Justine and Denise Cameron for making me feel so welcome during the first event of the new BMX Knightswood Centre.

A very good experience at a new venue. I was well looked after.
