So What Have we been up to? May-June 2015

So what have we been up to?

Well since the last newsletter we kicked off with Joe instructing on the Arrow Making workshop on Wednesday 13th.

Kev, Bob & Ed then headed into the weekend 15th-17th with the 2nd year Woodland Wayer Navigation Weekend in Oxfordshire. Jason instructed the 1st year Woodland Wayers on the Intermediate Fire Weekend, also in Oxfordshire, Danny & Kev Kean delivered a private day course booking and went onto a Private birthday booking at the customers location on the following day.

Adam, Danny & Chris McAffrey had a three day midweek Private school booking in Oxford.

The weekend of the 22nd-25th was a fantastic weekend as many of you turned up to The Bushcraft Show. It was great to see you all at the show & we hoped you enjoyed our display of bark crafts we had to show you all. It was also great to see so many of you getting involved in the cook off competition both by participants & spectators all being entertained by our very own Mr Martin Tudhope. Jason also gave a presentation on “Bushcraft in the UK” on the main stage where the Tipi’s were full to the rafters with standing room only. Many people commented afterwards at the “inspirational” talk.

On the same weekend we are also exhibited at The Big Outdoor Show in Milton Keynes. Jason quickly headed over to give another presentation to a packed stage, only this time with Sir Ranulph Fiennes in the audience… no pressure then! Kev & Jay gave friction fire demonstrations to the crowds both at Canoe Trails stand & our own stand manned on the Saturday by Brian.
