St Andrews Blokarting

Nigel and I were out Blokarting at St Andrews today for Falkirk Community Trust with a group from Grangemouth High School.

It was dry with a mixture of sunshine and some cloudy patches and a West to North-West breeze. The group got on well with the Blokarts and had fun learning how to use them.

St Andrews Blokarting and Muiravonside

The last two days I’ve continued working on the Antonine Primary School Activity Week for Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors. On Thursday Nigel and I were at St Andrews with a group blokarting. The winds were perfect and the group got the hang of the blokarts very quickly.

After the kids had camped overnight at Muiravonside Country Park the groups all had a go at orienteering, river walking and bushcraft today. It’s been an excellent week and the kids, teachers and parents involved were a pleasure to work with. Generally dry today, but with rain and snow high up forecast for the weekend.

I was working with Nigel and Martin today on the Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors Easter Kid’s Easter Programme. We were up at St Andrews Blo-Karting with an excellent group. Sunny all day and with a good South-Westerly breeze.

WInter Lectures and Blo-Kart/X-Sail Training

On Thursday evening I was working with Davy Virdee delivering lectures on Scottish Winter and Avalanche Awareness and Avoidance. It was a good excuse to relive a few winter adventures and to get your mind back in to a more wintery mode. Thanks to everyone who attended, Davy for organising it and Alan for all his help on the evening.

Yesterday I was up at St Andrews with the Falkirk Community Trust Team doing some staff training on Blo-Karts and X-Sails with Tom from X-sail. These things aren’t my normal medium, but it was a fun and informative day.
