PFO Training Weekend February 2017

The forecast wasn’t very promising at all, and sure enough as I arrived at the Newby Bridge YMCA on Friday evening I was met by the familiar sound of rain. Settled into the accommodation no problem, and it turned out that we were the only group in this massive complex of huts and adventure equipment right by Windermere. Friday evening was spent getting settled in and eating dinner which as it turned out was the only one I needed to cook as all other meals were catered, which was a nice surprise.
