Bog Seat Challenge 2014 Up and Running

This years competition kicked off with a ten pin bowling challenge at Park Royal between the joint winners of last year’s challenge, Imperial (West London) and REN. REN feeling confident, arrived with enough players to enter two teams, Imperial were also feeling quietly confident so the competition was clearly going to be hot. The winners would be the team with the highest average team score over two games.

With all the teams getting off to a flying start, strikes and spares were posted by many players and the subsequent bravado was impressive. The end of the first game saw the average scores standing at: REN (Team Kate) 81; Imperial 86.3; and, clear leaders, REN (Team Pete) 92.2. The top individual scores Andrew (Imperial) 99, Kate (Team Kate) 115 and Joe (Team Pete) 129.

Freezer Camp – Wind, Rain, Ice and Sunshine

Everybody was there Friday afternoon, tents getting pitched and the wind is already starting to buffet the place. Our site was in the woods so a little more sheltered. Outer flysheets up and pinned to the ground with extra-long pegs. That should do the trick.

GLMW Expedition Training and Assessment Programme 2014

Pitching tentsIt began at “omg it’s early”, 8:30am, last Saturday morning with the pitching of tents and registration to make sure that the people who had signed up were actually the people who were turning up. 47 Scouts and Explorer Scouts from across GLMW arrived to commence this year’s Expedition training and Assessment Programme. After a week of lashing rain and howling gales, the expectation was for a waterlogged and unpleasant weekend in the mud. But no, what was this? The sun forced its way through the early Saturday morning clouds and a dry day was in prospect. The tents went up on moderately dry areas near the training complex and, yes, smiling was in evidence.

Knowledge and Creativity

With all of the great libraries of the world obtainable on line and the power to find information available to anyone with a smartphone in their pocket, there has never been an era where people can have so much knowledge on hand for any particular purpose they choose. StonehengeAt the same time, it sometimes appears that people know less and are less interested to find out for themselves the things that might make the world a more exciting, well developed or positive place.
