Jim Allen Speaks: What a BEAUTIFUL presentation of Sochi that Myrna has sent along.
Beth and I have talked frequently this past week how we are so glad we had the opportunity to visit and tour this city.
Stan speaks: Jim has been able to convert a fantastic slide show sent along by the daughter of Rendall and Myrna Bilton. The Show is of the “finished product” of Sochi, the results of billions of dollars spent to prepare for the Olympics!! http://youtu.be/zco6f_8rUFo
It does not allow the person to advance each picture — therefore it takes longer to watch….but heck it is Sunday! Take your time and enjoy the Show!!
Watching the Games these next 2 weeks will have even more meaning to those of us who attended the Sochi European Open Tournament. And just in case you wish to watch the video that introduces all of the North American Attendees, click: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cndKH1W_lSA 12 German Shufflers also attended.
Jim speaks: I had great pride watching the Opening Ceremonies and smiled when each member nation of the ISA walked in. It sure does bring us all together, does it not?
