Convoys and the Kerri Strugg thread ...

According to the British press I think this relates to the " convoy "
thread ... apparently the organisers didn't file tour permits and the
leaders forgot to tell the drivers where to rendezvous ... consequently
athletes from all over the world are being driven around by bus drivers
who don't know where they are going ... assuming they turn up in the
first place or don't break down on the way ...
The Times reported that the British rowing team had to pour water over
their driver to keep him awake at the wheel, and I gather that Princess
Anne's official car was used as a team taxi on one occasion, which
probably drove the security services crazy.
I'm talking, of course, about the Olympics in Atlanta, wherever that is. <g>
If you know, please send a map to the American Olympic Committee ... in
fact send them a few hundred and ask them to give them to their bus drivers.
