Bronzed and happy ...

Craig and Mark supervised a bronze Duke of Edinburgh award for pupils of a private school in Edinburgh. Two 6hr days navigating their way through the Pentland Hills with an overnight camp. 
The weather on Saturday was glorious but deteriorated overnight with high winds and rain on Sunday. This is the perfect mix as it really tests  resilience and team work. Both teams did very well and passed. 
Many thanks to David Adamson (assessor), Louise for her dedication to the students the DofE award and for the lemon drizzle cake and Will for giving up his weekend to help.
Silver next ?
Meanwhile, Bill was busy managing the final SXC race of the season down at the excellent Drumlanrig Castle circuit, where Rik Alsop put on the usual fantastic course for the racers.  Another great day was had by all competitors and we all look forward to next season now...
Here are some pics from the expedition...
