What a camp! The weather was too good to us and made us all melt! For those still there, how awesome that the ice cream van turned up on Sunday!? Big thank you to Aslam (Mr Yummy). They were very much needed!
Thank you once again Nicky and Simon for organising the rounders. We had 2 teams, Saints vs Sinners
In the Saints team we had The Mutley Crew, Muttz Nuttz and the extras.
In the Sinners team we had Team of Evil, Furbabies from Hell and The Crate Escape.
It was a draw! 10.5 points each team.
We had rugby tackles, black eyes and many bruised knees and egos, but it was all fun!
The team game, Warrior Dash, was brutal in this heat! A few of us got burns/bruises. (Seems that nobody is safe on our camps, we should get you all to sign disclaimers! lol)
We had to have a volunteer team made up because of how it was played. And can you believe the volunteers won!? Well, it was a pretend win so it couldn't be counted.
The results were as follows:
1st - Furbabies From Hell = 2 minutes and 32 seconds - 10 points added to quiz.
2nd - Team of Evil - 2 minutes and 36 seconds - 8 points added to quiz.
3rd - The Muttley Crew - 2 minutes and 37 seconds = 6 points added to quiz.
4th - Muttz Nuttz - 3 minutes and 33 seconds - 4 points added to quiz.
5th - The Crate Escape - 3 minutes and 39 seconds - 2 points added to quiz
Now the quiz scores. They were very close and we actually had a draw, joint 2nd.
1st - The Muttley Crew - 42 points
2nd - Furbabies from Hell - 39 points
2nd - Muttz Nuttz - 39 points
3rd - Team of Evil - 34 points
4th - The Crate Escape - 33 points
So that meant, the overall score, with their quiz score and team game scored combined was as follows:
1st - Furbabies from Hell - 49 points
2nd - The Mutley Crew - 48 Points
3rd - Muttz Nuttz - 43 points
4th - Team of Evil - 42 points
5th - The Crate Escape - 35 points.
So the new champions are Furbabies from Hell! Well done guys! Very close!

And a big thanks to our other Gail and company for all your help with the buffet. You always do a fantastic job in setting it out for us and getting everything organised. You're a star!
The buffet was full of nom noms! Thank you so much to everyone that contributed to it and for the loan of the tables. Can't wait to see the Howl'o'ween noms.

We'd also like to thank Matt G for bringing his archery set. It was a real hit! (excuse the pun). If you bring it for Howl'o'ween, I'm thinking maybe we should have an apple on someone's head? You know, scare the bejeezus out of them ;)
Thank you Ryan G for the equipment which helped with the fencing so much!
Denise, because we now have a favourite wine that even Paul will drink!
Andrew for that awesome breakfast, especially the eggy fried bread!
Thank you to all those that helped either put up or take down the off lead fencing area. It saved a lot of time!
And thank you to everyone that attended, helped out with anything and everything and of course to Becky for keeping me sane!
Roll on Howl'o'ween Camp!
