April 2010 bounty

#1
With all the ho-har this year about our training days / pay etc we were told we'd qualify for bounty having completed a camp, and all MATTS other than a CFT, CBRN, and navigation. It's February and we've been told we now need a CFT - with one opportunity to pass.

What the deal with your units? Are we the only one who've had this turn around?
 
#2
Sounds ridiculous to me. I hope you can make it and pass...
 
#3
to be fair its not right that they should make a 'u' turn like that, however it is only a cft and you should be able to pass one. :D

might be worth finding out what MATT level your unit are training too, i'm not sure but at MATT level 3 you only compete a no of competencies.
 
#4
Nope similar stress here with same conditions. Plus cancelled courses and weekends addding to the nausea. No real opportunity to put it right
 
#6
Good moneysaving idea though!
 
#7
It is stipulated that you must do build up training for a CFT, so probably bull sh1t unless they have factored that in over the next 8 weeks before April.
 
#9
6 miles
 
#11
Personally I think it should be 10 miles, 25 Kg, weapon not included and an assault course at the end with a shoot to finish.



For everyone, less proper sick.

to be fair troops, if you cant smash out 6 miles then its a poor show.
just think of the £1500, grit your teeth and dig in.

as for beat up training - to quote msr's old favourite 'refer to your PSI' :D

agree, at least the unfit bounty hunters will have a wake up, theres at least 2 on my unit that im sure would possibly die if they had to do the CFT.
 
#14
I thought said bounty had gone up?

£1700?

Any advance on £1700?
 
#15
That's fun. Next 4 training weekends are range weekends aiming at completing ALL shooting as per the book before starting Live Section + attacks on camp. Not one CFT has been run since April last year.


Going to be some very unchuffed people if they change the rules before April.

It doesn't affect me this year and still going through basic training but the message to the guys at my unit has definitely been no CFT pass, no bounty. They are running training sessions on drill nights and on Saturdays at a local RAF base to get people into practice.

Personally I don't think the CFT should have been dropped anyway, let alone training for it. Nothing beats a brisk stroll through the countryside on a Sunday morning to work off your full English!

Have a word with yourself. Don't you mean whistle a jaunty tune as you take a brisk stroll around the countryside in the company of your mates, enjoying the views of flora and fauna?

Beat up training? Full English, couple of mugs of NATO and a beagle if you are that way inclined.

I worked it out for our 8 miler (good old CO). It is a pound every four steps (if you have little legs). COunt em down. It's worth it ;)

I was raging at the start of the year, completed all MATTs (including CFT) except for the PFT and CBRN in May then they changed the rules to no CBRN, CFT and Nav but 2 PFTs and getting them done has been a nightmare with dates/times and venues being changed short notice. I have not heard about having to do a CFT for bounty yet but I am sure if there is the one did at the start of the year will prob not count :evil:
