A bit of rain didn't put off our Blair Atholl journey

4th April 2014

The first Blair Atholl Training weekend got underway with all 9 patrols proving they were able to set up their campsite in torrential rain on the Friday night.

The weather brightened up and was dry and cold for the rest of the weekend. All 54 participants worked on developing their skills in axe & saw, fire lighting, pioneering and building camp gadgets.

In their free time the camp organised themselves into a massive game of rugby complete with cheerleaders on the sidelines, the score is still unclear!

A rousing campfire, including sketches from the patrols finished off Saturday night and we were allowed a longer lie on Sunday morning  due to the clocks changing. A great start to the training and everyone is looking forward to the next weekend in June and the camp itself.
