Syd’s Escape Diary 10.01.2009

The first full day back at Fairbridge and everybody onsite as no offsite activities today.

A whole host of activities for the Venturers to do including the onsite swimming pool, high and low ropes courses, video games in the Roverscope section, jelly wrestling and a bucking bronco amongst others.

Another hot and sunny day so may were simply happy to sit and chat in the shade for part of the afternoon.

In the evening we had a short welcome for all of the international Venturers and leaders at Escape – 102 in total of which the UK are the largest at 38.

A brief address by camp chief Scott Sargant and a chance to chat with those from New Zealand, Japan, Indonesia and smaller contingents from elsewhere.

Then off to dinner before the DJs kicked off the evening entertainment on the main stage.
