The syndicate captain is a mysterious being. Without question every single one is highly-organised, resourceful and patient – how else would they manage to arrange umpteen shoot days with a song in their heart when so many things can go awry? The syndicate captain checks dates and availability with precision, only ever asking for money in a polite and decent manner and confirm every last detail in writing well in advance. It has been decided that throughout next season every syndicate captain be given the utmost priority before, during and after shoot days. The syndicate captain is to be driven to every drive by their loader, given the best pegs, granted first dibs on the pork pies and even be given a guard of honour at the day’s end. Anyone with any objections will be asked if they wish to take over as syndicate captain.
