Is there any one going to bassingbourn this weekend or their 2 week camp?

Im currently S******g bricks at the moment.
I did my CMSR(TA) there just after Easter, and Spurtsluv did his there a few weeks after that. Apart from some particularly nasty packed lunches it really wasn't bad.
Just heard i'm heading to Bassingbourn for my two weeks. Definitely bricking it!
I did my cmsr at warcop. Its really not that bad, its hard work, but just put your back into it and work hard. its not a hard course, but people DO fail. Think fast, act fast, you cant go wrong, unless your a complete mongoloid. Its a bloody good laugh and you'll make some good friends there as well. So stop bricking it, have some b****x, get out there and get your fitness up in preparation, it will help in the long run.

Oh, and good luck! :D

I did mine at Grantham. It's a great two weeks. Just be ready to learn and don't answer back because you will never be right!
Bassingbourn is good. I trained there when the Regular RE/RS/Queens Div trained there. Its one of the better ATR's. 13 minutes+ though? Are you kidding?
More than anything remember this: put into it everything you have and you will do fine. You will have to do CICs yet, so as long as you put in the effort it will be noted, you are required to do it in the given time on CIC though. I did mine on cmsr in 12.06. with training and effort i can now clear it. You are still training, this is your first real stint, so nobody is expected to run it in 10.30 first time. thats why they call it training i suppose. but make sure youcan do it comfortably before CIC or rtu'd it is!!

I can do the mile n half in 13.40, should be able to do it a bit faster, will i get rtu'd? thats the main thing im worried about.
Nah i did mine at Bassingbourn and someone took 19 mins (fcuk knows how, i can walk it faster than that) and nobody got RTU'd. I was sh*ting it as well but it aint as bad as you think it'll be. i acutally wish i was back there now as there some really good lads. However there is a corporal who can be a complete cnut if u piss him off, im sure u will find out who i mean. Anyway good luck and enjoy it.
By the way did anyone do there CMSR(TA) starting day before Easter? I know theres some of you lurking around cos u told me u come on this site.
Read my second post. I doubt theyll have got stricter since then, and even if they have just push yourself as hard as you can. there will a corporal running at the right sort of pace for you to pass so keep up with him and youll be fine.
4 people on my cmsr got rtu'd!!! on collapsed about 1/2 mile into the run, 2 dropped after a bit of a beasting up hill and down dale (warcop is in cumbria and a shite place to do CFT/BPFA cozof the hills) if you can do it there, you can do it anywhere! and 1 left on the 3rd day!!! 4 people failed and have to re-do r2-r6, so out of 22, 14 passed. cmsr is nothing serious though, CIC will really sort the men from the boys!!!

Still, I had my soap-on-a-rope. Problem is, the rope was wound around my hands and feet 'Hunted pig' style and it wasn't an apple that was stuffed into my mouth...

They used to prod me until I squealed. *cries*
We had two being RTU cos they were complete mongs and one cos he had a foot infection so couldnt go on the final ex, and one self rtu for some unknown reason so four out of 36 and none for fitness.
A lad in my troop who uses the name 'Oldest-Recruit' is currently on CMSR at Grantham. 15 were RTU'D during the first couple of Days for failing the PFT/BPFA run 8O
