Fri 13 May — Ten Tors contact

FROM SO1 TEN TORS LT COL PETER BATES

With immediate effect all members of the Ten Tors community are asked NOT TO contact Tony Clark direct on Ten Tors issues, but to address everything through the Ten Tors Mail box. The reason for this is that Tony has become a little unwell and needs to rest for a week. I am sure you will all understand and give him some time to recover.

Sun 8 May — 43 YEARS OF OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION AND VOLUNTARY SERVICE TO TEN TORS - Mr Jack Barker.

78 year old Jack Barker from Ivybridge in Devon was recognised this year for his outstanding contribution to the Ten Tors Challenge.

In a move to recognise extraordinary service to the event, the organisers have introduced two new awards, Diamond and Platinum, for 30 and 40 years of continued volunteering service to Ten Tors.
Jack, who received a standing ovation from friends, colleagues and team managers was presented by Colonel Toby Bridge, Commander Headquarters South West and Director of Ten Tors with a platinum award in recognition of his outstanding contribution for over 40 years voluntary service to the Challenge.
Jack has dedicated 43 years to training youngsters for Ten Tors - including his two daughters and two granddaughters. Jack said:
"I am very humbled and happy to have received this award, I am a keen walker myself covering 5/6 miles on the moors a day but have never taken part in the challenge. Training the youngsters keeps me fit and is a huge part of my life, I'm not sure what I'd do without it. The army is fantastic - I couldn't fault them with their organisation of this event - thank you for my award."
