    Alternately , read your joining instructions (FFS!)

    The staff at Glencourse were brand new when I was there , just dont dick about and youll be fine.

    If any of the DS take the pish , its just that , pish taking , dont look like youre about to burst into tears whatever you do , or youll have it ripped out of you all weekend (the staffs patter is awesome too ) :D

    Try and get a bed next to a window and open it - Ive been scunnered with proper flu since I got back, Im only out of bed thanks to copious amounts of cocodamol. Get chatting to the guys with numbers closest to yours , youll be doing the team tasks with them.

    When you get the chance to eat , eat loads (bar before the run) you'll need it , and unless youve smuggled munchies in , you wont find anything to eat lying around. Its tasty and free...

    The team tasks are all about a bit of lateral thinking , get stuck in, use the nut and you'll do well.

    You'll be knackered come time to go home but its well worth it , enjoy yourself & dont panic.
  6. cheers for the help people and i havent got any instructions until i go down on monday anyways appreciate the help
  7. Doesnt the letter youve been sent telling you what your date(s) are for selection have a kit list & an itinerary included?
