WC Croatia LogoImpression of the day:

More and more teams are pouring into Zagreb. The list of countries that did not show up yet is too long to write down in extenso in this report, but to name a few: the Italians arrive later, the French, the Slovenians and the only Swedes here are the sisters Nilsson. The total number of countries in this tournament is a staggering 27 countries. I can't remember we had that big of a number in the turn up, but then again we haven't been exactly keeping the statistics in check. It's not like we are excel fetishists recording every shot, score, country and archer showing up during field tournaments in spreadsheets. One thing I do know for sure, and that is that Romania is here for the first time ever on a field championship. And with four archers nonetheless.

I did not take a lot of overview shots today, I focused mainly on getting pictures for the mugshot album. We are at 45 photos, out of a total of 249 archers expected to show up. We had more archers on the practice field, but it is hard to squeeze myself in between the archers for those shots, especially since the director of shooting on the practice field runs a tight ship. She whistles quick successive rounds and people need to get things going and don't meddle if they want to practice.

All in all it was an enjoyable day. Lots of archers got reacquainted today and did some practice as well. With the training field open at two in the afternoon until seven we had all the ingredients for a cautious start of this tournament.
