I haven't included other work including admin work such as the Reno organisation, water auditing etc or the other equipment maintenance daily or on the run.
As you can see a pretty hectic week for the 4 of us and why it is impossible to do this amount of conditioning on a weekly basis. 
Mother nature can throw a spanner in the works or any number of other variables which can happen from time to time in which case we just add it to the list. We have previously attended other works in the lead up to this week so that we have the whole week to focus solely on course presentation.

Just thought you might be interested in why there is a difference between the course presentation on a major weekend compared to that of our week to week presentation, which we still try to set as high a standard as possible within time and budget.
