Today marked the arrival of several DrongOs including Natalie Holroyd(!!!), Matthew Vokes, Sarah Gales, Ben Stevens, James Hoad and Danâ€¦
Liam was accidentally healthy by choosing a packet of crisps that only had 3 actual crisps in it.
Jezza was injured so decided to cover the most distance out of all of us by cycling to training using Johnâ€™s bike, a total of 38km. Letâ€™s just say he got a very damaged undercarriageâ€¦
The training at La Mare de Pressoirs was very EVENTful. The morningâ€™s courses were planned by Paul (who tried very hard to put the names of the courses in French), including a â€˜ContrÃ´le de vitesseâ€™ (speed control), â€˜Choix de pointsâ€™ (Control pick), â€˜Plus longueâ€™ (Longer legs) and â€˜Projet dâ€™itinÃ©raireâ€™ (Route choice).
We did a peg relay planned by Jonathan, whose attempts to french ended up in calling it a â€˜Relais de chevilleâ€™ or â€˜ankle relayâ€™. Unfortunately, Paul did not like this relay, since he prefers relays of the temporal, time-keeping variety, especially with lots of waiting around. So he, Ben and Phil felled a tree.
This relay had a slight twist, with pegs hidden up a tree, on the tent and in a pile of horse dung.
Rory Burford orienteered, and was rather good at it if I say so myself.
James revealed his amazing knowledge of popular culture by naming I'm A Celebrity winners.
After having arrived from a hard dayâ€™s orienteering, we were treated with pizza!
Rowan arrived from his Big Birthday Adventure in Paris.
