    Hi all,

    I'm back from my self imposed exile and would like to open up this weekend to the members here.

    I have already posted this "elsewhere", and quite a few of you are already down to attend anyway. So any more takers?

    Usual venue...Middlewood Scout Camp, Worsley, Manchester.
    http://middlewoodcamp.org.uk/

    Cost will be the usual £4 per person per night, all of which goes to Scouts not me!

    After the last weekend when things got a little raucus I have decided to revise and revisit the original "Rules" that were devised for this venue by its original organiser Matt Weir.

    SO...
    Simon

    Would anyone be interested in a basic first aid workshop at the Meet?

    No CPR cos I don't have access to a doll :rolleyes: , just the type of things we all encounter from time to time, such as:

    Heat illnesses
    Dehydration
    Bleeding
    Burns & Scalds
    Choking,
    Signs of shock
    Concussion


    Any requests for topics will be entertained.

    Hi Simon,

    I'd be interested in a bit of first aid, can I maybe suggest: choking, signs of shock, concussion, or anything that could be encountered when out hiking/ camping/ bushcrafting?

    I'll not put my name down on here as well, as it could get pretty confusing! :D
