What does that mean? Yes there are female PTIs in the OTC. Strange boy.

PM BigJobs for more info on the REME competition, he did it with our unit last year.

It's not really a competition, but a bit of fun.
Stands include warrior / harley driving, vehicle recovery, etc etc.
Best bit is the assualt course on the 2nd day. It's a minuture gun run. Blokes heave girls over walls, carry bits of kit, then everyone laughs when girls fall into water. It's not sexist it's fact! Although there was one bloke, I think from Cambridge, who screamed like a girl as he splashed down.
Good laugh and a bit of an insight into what the reme does.
Bit of drinking, but a little on the tame side.

Gunnery is still easily the best.

Thanks 'Jobs

A few questions
Is their a section attack stand
Does Sat include a party? Is it Black tie
Is this another excuse for 2LT in the Reg to crack onto Students?

There is a section attack stand using TASEC (unsure of spelling, military laser quest), there is a curry dinner that's not black tie, just suits.
Stand run down is.

CasSim
Vehicle Recovery x2
Aircraft maintenance
Warrior / harley driving
Crane building (using brio!)
Go-kart time trials
Planning exercise and problem solving
Para stretcher run
Section Attack
Mini gun-run / assault course

If you're army barmy like moi, it's a bit tame. Bit of a laugh. I shall not be going again as I have far better things to do.

Do something worthwhile and go gunners!

Did I mention the gunners?

hey

i did it last year - and as big jobs said its a good laugh.
Saturday night isnt black tie - just normal mess dress and there's usually a disco and its usually a major drinking sess - think we managed to drink the bar dry last year...
It is pretty chilled and a good laugh and not to strenuous a weekend... though i did end up getting completely soaked on one of the best assault courses I've ever done!
hope that helps :D

Who have we got from ULOTC xcept of course from spakhead and myself- we really can't get out of it! Should be good - also have the advantage of FMT with REME instead of having to mix with RLC riffraff. :twisted:

I ain't going to be there either. And not because I'm on the FMT weekend.
No, I'm off to lob potatoes at a certain ginger-haired shuffler.
That said, the weekend does look good. Certainly a change in pace after the monotony of MTQ2!
