    Does the Corps still have a team?

    Are they still Lycra clad love gods or lumpy lard buckets with ideas of grandeur
  2. It can't be that hard, MDN used to do it and he is a fat tub of liquid chips.
  3. How difficult? Slide downhill, powered by gravity, brush the snow off your toboggan, get drunk.
  4. Not entirely true Cloudbuster.

    Finding the hotel is a hassle, getting up early with a hangover is never easy.

    Polishing runners in the cold is not only boring but hard work.The ride down the track is noisy, scary and if you get it wrong you bear the scars for life.

    Anyone recallign a Pete G*** PT beasting will also confirm it was no walk in the park

    Getting drunk was a duty which was rigidly adhered to, Gluwhein was on sale at most venues and it was considered insulting to the locals if we didn't partake :D
  5. Ahhhhhhhh!!!! Sweet memories of 664 (Independant Bobsleigh) Sqn. From 1989 to 1992, the only exercise or deployment (Other than Gulf 1) was to a bobsleigh run. RoJos band of elite lycra wearing work bandits would attend in force.
  6. But it wasn't a skive or a chance to look cool in St Moritz :D
  7. Team lycra still lives on i believe there is an officer in 653 Sqn running the team this year!
    A very nice GUY who is a CAPT!!!
    Along with his team of Fijians (Cool runnings 2 i beleive)

  8. Weren't the 'Cool Runnings' team Jamaican?

  9. The Team are still up and running, being run by some bald bloke in 4 Regt, anyone intrested is to give 659 a call and ask around. Best ride of your life.
