Guinness World RecordTM Attempt 

Those wishing to take part in the record attempt had first to register, show their photo-id or their birth certificates to the officials. This was overseen by two witnesses , who in turn were overseen by an adjudicator, Ms. Katie Forde, sent over by the Guinness World RecordsTM organisation to make sure everything was done by the rules and to carry out the official count.
