For me it took up the afternoon & evening of Wednesday 20/10/2010.
My Brownies caught the train at a little after 5pm.
We had a change at Partick but arrived safely in Queen Street before heading off to Pizza Hut for some tea.
While the girls (and Guiders) tucked into their mini-pizzas and salad (Hahahahahaha... nachos... that's about the only salad bar option I spotted them eating!) I had to go for a sound check at the venue. I returned to pay for food then had to leave again as I was booked to play the Centenary Fanfare to open our event.
The gig started at 7pm with approx 2000 members in attendance I believe. My Guiders/Helpers/Mum got the kids into their seats with their goody bags in time for us to start.
The background music faded, the light dimmed, a microphone was put in the centre of the stage at the Royal Concert Hall and I was on. By myself. In a spotlight! Performing the Centenary Fanfare composed by Claire Griffin.
2 mins later the fanfare was finished, and the real entertainment started. Clyde 1 fm hosted the concert and after a little chat from the beautiful blonde compere Pearl and The Puppets were introduced.
Pearl and her Puppets were great! I snuck into the auditorium and found my unit - who were loving it too.
I hung around for a bit. 20million toilet trips later I had to leave to head back backstage to prepare to close the event.
The making of the promise bit at 20:10 20/10/2010 didn't quite go according to plan I presume... it was a little strange. Still - everyone did it - we joined the rest of the uk in making/renewing our promise.
We then saw dance group The Fusion who were also brilliant - and very popular if the screaming and shouting was an indicator!
I was very proud of my pack - they were very well behaved and had a great time - well done 310th Brownies and well done Girlguiding Glasgow!!!
