This August 10 members of our SCRUFF group took to Segway riding in Rushton Spencer. We all
had a great time with only a couple of falls, but thankfully no
injuries. Although there was some trepidation during the instruction period it wasn't long before we were all 'going for it' on the course.
Our latest adventure was 'Go Ape' with 6 intrepid adventurers going for
it! Three of us managed to complete the course whilst the other three
got 2/3 of the way round before calling it a day. We were scrambling up
rope ladders, crossing from tree to tree by various 'bridges' including
swinging logs, zig zag slats of wood and zip wires. We all attained our
'Amazingness Certificates'. We sometimes landed off the zip wires on our
rear ends as the picture shows. However, we gave some youngsters (20
something) who went before us a run for their money!
This month eight intrepid adventurers went indoor flying at Ifly, Manchester. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and have the photos, videos and certificates to prove it! Great instructor and staff at Ifly. They made us very welcome. Most of us took the option of 'flying high' ie: to the top of the chamber! We all gained @white fliers' status!
The Adventure, SCRUFF, group had its first outing this month. A great day was had by all! Some abseiled once, some twice, and the most intrepid of us three times!! Luckily the weather was kind to us and we did not have to cancel this time. There were 10 of us altogether and no-one wimped out! Photos can also be found on the Mountain Monkeys Facebook page.
December 2017 Report: View
An Adventure Group met for the first time in September this year with 9 due to abseil in October, but unfortunately a tornado had other ideas and the event had to be postponed until November. After this event, we are probably going to move indoors for our next activity as winter is looming and the weather is changing. We are hoping to see a lot of the 12 members attending. Together we came up with a name for the group - SCRUFF - which stands for Senior Citizens Really Up For Fun! After a lively discussion, the group came up with a number of activities to try, the first was Abseiling, which involved six intrepid members. Jennefer Richmond
