Snowboarding

#1
At my interview last week my ACIO officer told me that snowboarding has been introduced alongside ski-ing as a sport made available to pursuit through the army.To be honest i always hoped that it would be possible that i would be able to get some Boarding under my belt through the Army considering the only way i like to involve myself with skiers is to throw snowballs at them :p Plus,i cant really see myself in a bright pink and green all in one ski suit(sorry to you ski-ing folk but you all know of the banter between boarders and skiers) :wink:

Are there any arrsers who Snowboard? And have you done any through the army?

Regards

well if you were at your ACIO interview I would presume you were just joining up then? If you think you are going to be swanning off doing a 3 week snowboard trip as soon as you get to your unit stand by to be stapled to the feckin wall or having your toungue nailed to a passing boat. Get some time in before trying to go on a jolly or it will backfire on you. If however you are not just joining up and was visiting the ACIO for a chat or a coffee or a brochure on the latest fashions in the Army then please excuse my humble self.

gunzablazin very interesting name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :oops:

You're right,im just starting my application and have just got home from RSC about an hour ago which i passed :) If my question about snowboarding confused you and it came across like i think im gonna stroll into my Reg and expect to be flown around the globe on various fun filled escapades then i do apologise.I just wanted an idea of what the army could offer me in the future and how they go about offering it.

Neo is an amusing name too....Can you dodge bullets?????????????

Oh you'll fly off around the globe on fun-filled escapades alright....woohahahah :twisted: (er - supposed to sound like an evil laugh)

Get some adventure training under your belt, kiddo, it's far better than REAL work.
