Cool Beans -- do you already have a Hawaiian shirt? If we get at least 12 people saying they are interested (that gives us a "squad" of 3 x 4) then I'll approach the conference organizers about getting a room.
I'm sure we will be magnificent -- I believe it gets easier the more beers one drinks -- I'll start practicing this evening when I get home (drinking beer, not precision walking ... that would be silly on my own)
@Max......Still not sure I am going to make it, but I will happily make a fool of myself if there's beer at the end.
I did drill when I was a conscript in the Rhodesian police about 40 years ago. They taught us (or tried to teach us) the movements by numbers - a bit like dancing. Our first drill instructor nearly gave up at one stage - we were totally uncoordinated. "You guys sound like a herd of buffalos crapping on the tarmac!" he shouted at us at one point. We did get better, slowly.
Later I frustrated our instructor by persistently mixing up my left and right. "Squad, Right Wheel!" he would command, and I would peel off to the left. Once he came and bellowed at me from the side - I of course had to keep a straight face and look straight ahead. I don't know why, but I started laughing. I thought I was dead (or at least condemned to a month of midnight guard duties) but the instructor started chuckling as well. He muttered some more profanities at me and went back to the head of the squad. It was a lucky escape and I tried really hard after that. I met him years later (he had since turned into a human being) and he remembered it well, and chuckled again.
So you take me as part of your team at your own risk..... :-)
