Exercise Arduous Serpent?

#1
Mornin' all,
I've had a fruitless search on here for anything relating to Arduous Serpent (TA Medical Services competition) and was wondering if the Arrse collective had any information, hints and tips about it.
Grateful for any replies,
DF

Yeah if it's anything like last years be prepared for pain and no sleep.

It's pretty much all Mil skills stuff with some VCP, assault courses, and media ops thrown in. Oh and the march at the end is a beast.

Google AMSTAP.

Dunno if its fixed or not, but last years winners were a big surprise. Not too bothered I bimbled away with some shiney last year at it, we even managed to beat a couple of the reg teams :)

Yes, I hear a TA Fd Hosp won overall - much to the embarrasment of the regulars.

Well you hear wrong. There was no embarrassment because it's bullshit. The "winning" TA unit actually came 5th overall behind 4 Regular units. For the record the scores last year were:

TA Units:

1st - 306 HSMR - 1622 Pts
2nd - 225 Med Regt - 1612 Pts
3rd - 205 Fd Hosp - 1591 Pts

Regular Units:

1st - 22 Fd Hosp - 1798 Pts
2nd - 34 Fd Hosp - 1769 Pts
3rd - 4 Med Regt - 1635 Pts

The Regular & TA Units do not compete against each other and the Regular Med Regts generally enter teams from their TA Sqns, though there may be the odd regular thrown in for good measure.

Is it still fixed?

We aced it one year and came 2nd. It was because we had won challenge shield and they were spreading the love.

I did Cambrian the next year instead. I thought Amstap was much more fun.
Most things are more fun than Cambrian hehe!

Which team won this year.

Which team won this year.
Same team as last year.

205 came second, can't remember third, was in too much pain at the time. Was even closer this year than last, 205 would have won if we hadn't missed a stand.

Irish team were good lads, cracking patrol skills from them.
