Gearing up for the Nationals

The days of the Louis Brown Client Counselling and Interviewing Competition (19, 20 and 21 of January) are drawing nearer and nearer. Colleges are sending in their comfirmations of participation, arrangements are being made, Judges are graciously consenting to come, and the atmosphere among the heads and volunteers is getting thicker and thicker with anticipation, excitement, and yes, nervousness as well.

We have organized intra-university competitions before, but they just were not the same....I mean, we were dealing with only our collegemates then, and even though that wasn't an excuse for shirking work or making mistakes, we drew comfort from that. But now, everything is taking place on a larger scale - more people, higher stakes, and any slight slip could be easily magnified.

We really want the organization of this competition to be a success, and we are trying to do our best to make sure it is. But hey, I guess this is only natural, but there is the slightest flutter of butterflies in our stomachs. So yes, do wish us luck and support us as we embark on this maiden venture.
