Ten Tors News – March 2016

March 29, 2016

Well done everyone for completing the 2nd Dartmoor Weekend. This weekend was the first full weekend two nights staying on the moor. The routes are difficult and especially when you have to climb up to High Willhays first thing in the morning.

It was a good weekend and everyone did well to get across the moor. It has been noted that if you are unwell prior to the weekend that may affect your walking let an adult know. It was a cold, bitterly cold weekend. It is important to ensure you are wrapped up during the day with plenty of ‘layers’ that you can take off and put back on as required. I know we are ‘picky’ about fleece ‘weight’ but it is really important when you are standing around in the chill. On that note a few areas to point out and to take some consideration from:

  • Scrutineering – please ensure the ‘walker’ packs their own bag and knows where everything is. Bring it in a separate large bag and then pack it as its checked. Can I ask that all parents stay until their walker has completed scrutineering in case you need to return to gather forgotten items. Also to park with consideration with the local houses and the access to the 169th hut for minibuses. ‘Leggings’ are NOT allowed as they are deemed too thin.
  • Sharing – to save weight you can share items such as cookers with team mates.
  • When staying in the hall ensure you are clean and tidy. Day kit will not be accessible during a weekend hike until the end.
  • Cooking – please make sure you know how to use your cooker in a safe manner. Shield it from the wind and please make sure you eat the food cooked and ensure it is HOT.
  • It does get colder at night so the quicker you get into your tent the warmer you will be.
  • Whilst walking there were a few navigation errors and also a few times where walkers were stood around. The more you stand around the more you get cold.
  • Keep together as a team. You should rally round weaker members of your team and help them. Walk as slow as them and they will eventually get quicker. Work as a team and stay together as a team.
  • FINISH – Please ensure as parents you arrive in good time (even early) so we can all get home to a warm bath and food.

Finally again a big WELL DONE to you all. A very good weekend had by all. There is only one more hike remaining and you will be walking mostly without adults. We will try and get the teams organized to reflect the event but we will still need to go through our selection process.

If any of you or parents have questions please drop us an email to the addresses given on the introduction pack.
