Thinking out of the box

#1
Any ideas for different training, away from the isolated army camp keeping the TA in the public eye???

Such as conducting CFT's in tourist areas (National Parks), with soldiers advertising their unit (plus the scenery would make the walk more interesting)

Exercises with mountain rescue, maybe a CCRF/2 (NC) Sig Bde thing but valid training and creating a good public image of the TA (we have a lot of -sigs- kit they may wish to make us of).

Other things I've seen in the past:

4 Para doing FIBUA/OBUA??? in a disused factory, public again able to watch.

Family weekends, unit does adventure training but family also attends. My unit used to camp out in the Peak District with girlfriends, wifes, kids etc in tow.

You could do a spot of 'Urban Orienteering' just make it look on paper that it will be a 'night orienteering exercise'...

You've just summed up the entire TA.
Saucer of milk?
Mug of coffee actually with one sugar and a sprinkling of contempt for 'hobbyists'

Do yourself a favour and drop the txtspk/chavspeak or you'll continually get the p1ss taken on a site like this. It's not that hard to spell and punctuate properly is it?
