John has actually run a yard several times before, but the only training he had received was "on the fly", during sessions. For him, this was an opportunity for me to fill in a lot of gaps.
I am pleased to report that the guys all did very well.
Here are a few photos that I took to remember the day by.

I'm very grateful to John, Chris, Derek and Graham for volunteering to learn this role as it is critical to the success of my operating sessions. Now I've just got to sort out the mess we left the yards in, and then I can organise a session where the guys can do the job for real.
