Raleigh Staff Olympics

After the PMs had returned from their project planning visits and the staff team was together again, it was time to do one final bit of team bonding before the start of expedition at the infamous Raleigh Olympics; a competition between the three 'Tango' training groups comprising a number of mental and physical challenges. Once the (very amusing) introduction skits were over, everyone made a huge effort with their fancy dress (the theme of which was ‘Dead Famous’), not to mention with the challenges themselves, which included a wheelbarrow race and an ice cream eating competition! If you like the sound of the Raleigh Olympics and are joining us here on Expedition 11B, worry not, because the venturers will all be taking part in their own competition before heading off to their projects….
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So here we finally are, training completed and ready to receive our host country venturers today and the rest of our venturers tomorrow! The last few weeks have flown by and all the preparation is done. It’s time for Expedition 11B to begin!!

It all looks really exciting and well organised. Good luck everyone. Please pass on our best wishes for a great time to Andy McVitty (Mum, Dad & Will).

Hi Kate,

Just thought you would like to know that the 6 Nations started yesterday. Ireland just had their first game and beat Italy, but not by much! It was very tense! Ireland have loads of injuries so there were lots of good players missing. Tommy Bowe is injured but that was quite good (only because they won) because he was commentating for the BBC and he is even sexier in a suit!

Lots of love Mumxxxx P.s. where were you this morning? Got up early to have a chat with you!

Lieve Eline,
Een hartelijke groet uit glimmen van Tjeerdsma,'s toegewenst. Ben je al een beetje gesetteld? Wij hoorden dat je naar de jungle bent geweest. Volgens mij moet het fantastisch zijn. Het gaat vast wel heel erg snel daar. Heb je een leuke groep? Wij zijn inmiddels met de voorbereidingen voor de verbouwing bezig. Badkamer, keuken uitgezocht etc 1 april de sleutel in ontvangst en daarna klusdag. Aangezien jouw mam al ervaring met friet op vrijdag heeft met de bouwvakkers bij jullie bood zij zich al weer aan om voor een aantal raki mannen te gaan koken. Geweldig dus. Heel veel plezier en groeten aan alle chimpansees. Doei
