12:00 Noon AST: By now, flights from Linktoria, Dragon Cities, New Chandler, and many more are awaiting arrival from North America, Asia, and Europe just to participate in the games.  Chartered buses await the teams amid possible crowds and media attention.

As a security precaution, some inbound and outbound flights were cancelled.  Civilians and media crew were pushed out of Hiiragi Airport to provide a secure escort.  With the terror level at red, some have thought the Prime Minister was crazy to hold such a game.

5:00 PM: N24 reports on the euphoria Aoyamans are feeling across the nation.  It has been nearly 8 years since Aoyama has competed in international games.

9:59:30 PM: Just a minute before the strike of 10, the ten-second countdown beams across the Nozomi Tower.  This is one of the few games in Aoyama to have used the famed countdown in its history.  The last event occurred nearly 20 years ago.  On all events, fireworks have said to have bloomed from nearly every stadium across the nation.

9:59:50 PM: Here it goes!!!

10:08 PM: Whenever a huge event like this ever falls upon Aoyama, you'd bet politicians would take whatever chance possible to get some spotlight.  Here's Ministry of Foreign Affairs William Strait and his little speech in Parliament.

10:30 PM - Late in the night...: Dozens of unofficial celebration parties spark off across the country.  Some of the larger ones even get free coverage by the media!  So now, thousands from all over the world party off into the night, awaiting for a day of athletic fame and pride tomorrow.
