Happy New Year!!! 🎉
So with 2017 starts the countdown to Kynren Season 2, with the first show performed in only 172 days time, on Saturday 1st July.
The countdown has also begun for all new Archers too, as later this month they and myself included will find out which team they will be working with in preparation for the shows.
For me as you may have read I have yo-yo’d in the last few months on which team would be best for me to sign up too.
Having helped out at some of the recent mix and match sessions I decided that I would also go through the process that each new volunteer is going through and leave that decision in the hands of Eleven Arches to decide my fate.
I have every faith that whichever team they select will best benefit the overall project and that works very well with me.
Looking beyond Season 2 if I can allow myself to do just that, I would like if at all possible to work in each team year by year, to fully understand and appreciate what each team trains for, how each team works, and to witness Kynren in its entirety that only those individual teams get to see.
I think that would be such an honour to do and an incredible experience to record.
Outside of the project, some of the Archers came together on Friday 30th December for another meetup to wish each other well for the up and coming year ahead.
It was great to see so many familiar faces and also meet one or two new ones, first year Archers and some new recruits too.
The venue of The Pavilion and our hosts Chris and Jo-Anna Robinson has been like a Kynren Volunteers 3rd home.
The place was a hive of activity, many locals who popped in for a quiet drink commenting how nice it was to see a venue so busy.
It was quite appropriate that it was held here, as Chris and Jo-Anna now embark on new endeavours when they open up new premises early in the New Year.
They have actively played their part in our debut season as they hosted many of our after show parties helping each team of volunteers become more acquainted with each other.
Thank you both for your support and helping us create so many memories.
From a volunteers perspective it doesn’t really change, it never does.
You only have to mention the word ‘Kynren’ and there is an immediate excitement.
Each and every Archer, new or old, we all just waiting to get started, and collectively we’re looking to put on another season of spectacular shows for your viewing pleasure.
We can’t wait to meet you all.
