Kirkby at the centre

Well what an exhausting day! After breakfast we all went out on to the field to dam the stream with the Oak team being victorious. Then it was time to test their cooking skills (or lack of them) as they built their own fires and cooked waffles on them. Also, their were trials for the Wales Olympic rope swing team. In the afternoon we went around the village on the orienteering course with some very quick times! Excellent all round performances! Then the latter half of the afternoon was spent enjoying the sunshine on the field and in the garden. After dinner we all walked down to the village to post our postcards back home. Then a quick read of the blog comments and off to bed.......   

Orienteering using good old maps - SatNavs are a thing of the past.

The midnight walk actually took place at 8:43 and 12 seconds.

Islands in the stram, that is what we are etc etc...
Dam it!
Panning for gold nuggets

Another dam(n) picture
Let me think - leaves and twigs or solid rocks to build the dam??
Nice work if you can get it.
Amie waffling again
I'm a firestarter........
Me tarzan, you Bethany.
Stuey trying to hide behind the rope!
Kasey's bandana/crash helmet comes in useful.

Luke aiming for the Olympic rope swing squad (and failing miserably).

Wish you were here - not! Who will arrive home first, us or the postcards.
Most people shuffle across the top - not our Lucy!

Gas mark 6 for forty minutes was way off the mark.
