Ten Tors Weekend286 weeks ago
 
For those taking part on the ten tors weekend (8th-10th) Feb.
If you haven't got a letter and T1, get one on Tuesday. If you turn up with all your kit and no T1 you'll have to stay for cadets instead. The weekend will cost you �5, to cover food and accommodation.

We will depart from the unit at 1900, arriving at Okehampton that evening. I've been advised pick up from the gate will be about 3pm on sunday, bring a phone in case this changes and you need to inform parents.

You will not be allowed on the moor without the right kit, if you're missing anything, see stores on tuesday and get what you need. All meals will be provided by Area, this includes exped rations, however, it does not include your emergency rations.

Bear in mind this an area course, you're representing the unit and the district [i don't think anyone else from Somerset and Dorset is coming], please behave accordingly. There will be four staff members from the unit present, along with training staff so don't think you can just mess around :p
