As Varsity is finally abroad this year we've come out early for a week of training - sandstones and intricate contour features aren’t something we get much of in Cambridge. Most of the CUOC contingent arrived late on Monday afternoon, just in time for the “rest” day on Tuesday. There was a wide range of activities on offer and we discovered some important things:
- Orienteers are basically big kids when it comes to water parks and will happily claim that climbing the stairs to get to the slides is basically fitness training as is attempting to swim the wrong way around the lazy river.
- Only one member of the club fancied cross country skiing.
- Checking your control descriptions is essential for a Vokes micro-O, the mispunch rate was over 75%!
- Dom's voice is repressed in the chapel choir, he’d much rather be singing Disney, ABBA and Queen.
