21 sigs off to cypress!!!!

#2
Sounds like a cracking use of the PRI funds, how many seniors have just joined the cross country team. So let me guess this right the cross country team are going but not the athletics team. Surely they are seperate teams anyway.

lol 21 Signal Regiment (Arse Support) are off to CYPRUS!!!! lol
Can you believe it the Regiment has funded a trip to Cyprus for... wait for it.... the X COUNTRY TEAM! Who? I hear you say? Yes they are off for "Warm Weather Training" The athletics TEAM is a TEAM of athletes that have to go to events as a TEAM to compete in TEAM events to win TEAM medals. Why isn't the whole TEAM going? Why aren't TEAM members given the option to go for TEAM runs on the Cypriat coast? You don't need a track to train as a TEAM do you? Anyone else have a strong TEAM like view on this?
Good work if you can get it. Isnt this what being in the army is all about? Mate, some advice for you, join the X country team.

If i was a runner, i would.. if i liked the sport in general, i would.. I'm not a runner really.. more of a worker.. The point i was making was that why should small branches of teams go to these places yet the regiment can't save the money and get a decent exercise organised. I would be happy with the isle of bloody wight than Wales or Salisbury Plain!!!

Sounds like the whinge from the football team at my last unit when the rugby team announced they were going on tour to London (just so happened to co-incide with the army navy game). "Why do the rugby team get to go away when we don't" Answer, cos we organised it. I know for a fact 21 sigs has a lot of funding for all its sports teams. The bloody athletics team didnt go to work for 3 months when i was there. You want to go sunning it in cyprus for free, join the X-country team or sort something out yourself.

Good work if you can get it. Exactly the reason we joined the forces. :)

Being members of the Corps of Royal Signals they will still say it was schitt and post multiple, pointless, whingeing threads about it on ARRSE.

Mr Chip, you've got alot to learn about budgets. Opportunities exist for sports all over the place, and money being spent on them doesnt change your exericse schedule one bit.

The fact that there is a trip out to cyprus for sport should encourage you to join the team, get fit and enjoy it. The benefits of being a fit soldier within the unit shouldnt need to be explained to you. Once again, join the team.

So you're saying you want your unit PRI funds that you pay to go to paying for exercises rather than funding things like this. The athletics team and the x-country team are different teams. I'm sure when the athletics season kicks off 21 sigs will have something nice planned for them as well.

i won't be in the athletics team!! not my cup of tea thank you! running around in shorts and a vest does not get the love handles looking good!" he he! i'll stick to my darts and pool i think!!

Darts now there's a mans sport, why dont u start a regimental darts team and organise a trip to lakeside for the world championships. And dont say it cant be done my mate started the regimental fencing team. Ok it was only him but he got funds and got to the sportsmans dinner, shame he had to sit on his own cos everyone thought he was a bit gay.

Shut the fcuk up then you boreing little tosser. Another sigs whinge thread. Do it or dont, get a fcuking grip. And i hope those motivated enough to go to cyprus enjoy themselves.

Out.

Listen chipy boy, I for one wish I was capable of representing the Regt at athletics, alas my body doesn't function at the speeds required for such events. Stop your whinging and crack on. If you are that desperate to go to Cyprus (correct spelling!) then get your arrse out there with 244 in July for Lion Sun, or maybe that's too demanding for you?
Cyprus here we come :)

Hey Chipfat you whinging little gimp, what are you moaning for? If work is your main passion and you want to go somewhere more exciting, get fit, pass a course or two and get yourself posted to a unit which will send you a little further afield without requiring you to run for The Army XC Champions...2 years in a row!

Mr X Lives for his running and was gutted to have missed out on olymic qualification for the marathon. Ran the last 8 miles with a torn calf muscle at the London marathon last year.

After watching Paula Ratcliffe i thought Wimp, Mr X did 8 miles with torn calf

He is good, but im afraid that MR X has not and probably never will run the Marathon as fast as Paula Radcliffe.

Also, it was not a 'torn calf muscle' he just went off too quick and died......went through 9 miles hanging off the back of a group of British guys aiming for 2:16 [qualification time for the Olympics] but this is the last he saw of them as he drifted back through the field.
He did have calf probs, but it wasnt torn....this would take months to heal!!

X is a really nice guy, but considering he is Kenyan, he is certainly not a superstar. This winter a lot was said about him getting into the GB team for cross country, but he was never in contention at the trials, although i reckon he could scrape in over the next 2 years [providing he gets a British Passport by then!].

Look out for him and the other 21 Sigs guys in the London Marathon this year. There are several of them aiming at sub 2:35.....thats bloody quick to you and i.

A bit unfair methinks, definatley not the staffies fault, there was an officer running with the whole shebang, more likely his fault than the staffies. As for wasters the Regtl X-Country team have won more honours for their Regt than all other sports combined.

The Staffie in question has been an army level runner for 10+ years. He is as dedicated to running as you Bumfiftaah are to whinging.

Stop being jealous, if you had the opportunity and were a good runner would you not have wanted to go and rubbed others noses in it that you were off for a jolly good swan?
