Summer Challenge 09

#4
Not as yet, we've just started the Winter Challenge which is a completly different format. That could have us working every w/e for 12 w/es!

I have heard that it's not going to be run by the Inf, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Summer Challange for 51 Brigade is 20th June to 08 Aug.

I got my form through the post a couple of weeks ago asking if I wanted to go do GD staff.

So what were SC 06 & 07?

If anything, WC 08 was a dumy run as this years is completly different.

H, on 7 & 8 the CIC sent a team up, I can only assume they will do the same this year.

Summer Challenge is definitely on in Scotland this year, bizarrely enough at Cameron Barracks yet again. It was put forward that Barry Buddon would be an easier place to use, but CCF camp takes priority over training, go figure.
Why does this not surprise me???

25 lads in a shitty old barrack block without even enough lockers for the blokes kit. :x

Worse still the poor mugs that tip up for this thinking they walk out the door and get handed £1500.00. :roll:

I dont think anyone explained that pay parades, Tax + NI Conts etc and get deducted at source and that the bounty does not get paid until the following April :slow:

Am i the only person who qualified for bounty and has still not got it???

Ice Cream anyone????????

Ah the wonderful Bounty, just been told by the PSAO that I've not completed any MATTs and that I best get a move on despite the various RTCs promising to forward the paperwork to my unit...

Dry your eyes, your bounty was paid as a bribe to someone in Glasgow to get rid of you to 23. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Is it too late to apply for the Scottish Summer Challenge this year ? I have been interested in going the last few years but other commitments have stopped me. And if do go would I then be able to go to a regiment as a PO?
