Its a round robin style comp on the sat with stand/events provided by various R Sigs units...some are kinda role related.
so you have for example
Para-log race/stretcher run
39 Bde - NI stand
14 Sigs -EW
21 Sigs -Air suport
ends with a final race
and then off to Blandford for a black tie piss up
then bugger off home on the sunday
I did it in my time and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact I'd say it was one of the best weekends of the training year and a good laugh. Everyone seems up for it, and towarsd the end of the day we had a few team races with a bit of "hurry up and wait" involved we started playing "team steals". Someone from BUOTC persuaded a Col to part with his rank slides in exchange for Ocdt's. Our WO2 (being well known to DSigs) and I persuaded him to part with his and I believe ULOTC Sigs Troop may still have a pair of Brig rank slides floatnig around somewhere
The dinner/drinking at Blandford afterwards is a good night out and the Sigs laid on the band for the dinner and a disco afterwards.
Hopefully they still see the value in these events and continue to make them worthwhile.
Expect a lot of stand training involving first aid (we had a landy that was smashed up against a tree with a sigs bloke made up to look like something from the set of Casualty), a stretcher race, some E&E with the SAS, a sigs DF Ex in a CP rigged with lots of kit, a timed slalom race in a Warrior, that sort of stuff with huge PISSEX at the end of the day. Sunday a bit of admin and break camp about 12.
Surely the first aid cant be impossible-not with these "read the instructions" type first aid aide memoires we have!Definately looks like a worthwhile weekend,only thing i aint looking forward to is the drive down!
