Fri 12 Feb — TRAINING NOTES 12 FEBRUARY 2016
We had horrible weather for those who braved the Moor last Saturday but enjoyable sunshine on Sunday in the aftermath of the heavy air cleaning rains. The Moor remains saturated and rivers higher than normal for this time of year. We were delighted to observe and hear of the flexibility of Team Managers in either varying their routes to less exposed areas or postponing training to another time. If you postponed your training on the North Moor, please do let us know, preferably in advance, so that we know how many of the 4 days permitted you still have in hand.
Mon 8 Feb — TEN TORS CHALLENGE - SPARE PLACES AND RESERVES
Our aim is to ensure that as many young people, within the permitted limits, are given the opportunity to take part in the Ten Tors life changing experience.....

Message from SO1 Ten Tors
Headquarters 1st Artillery Brigade and South West changes
The announcement of SDSR 15 has meant subtle change is required at Headquarters 1st Artillery Brigade and South West. To ensure that the requirements of the Army are met, the Brigade will split early in 2016 with the Regional Point of Contact (RPoC) element coming under Command of Colonel Toby Bridge and reporting directly to the Major General at Regional Command (2* HQ).
Whilst change always brings uncertainty, please be confident that there will be no reduction in the level of support or priority given to the Ten Tors and Jubilee Challenge. As the whole activity is widely recognised as a key multiplier in youth outreach, adventurous and arduous activity and as an opportunity for wider development.
The delivery team of Lieutenant Colonel Peter Bates (SO1), Major Mark Edward (SO2 & TT Secretary) and Warrant Officer Erica Butler (SO3) will continue to work hard to ensure all areas of work are covered. And we look forward to enabling another successful year.
Ten Tors is open to teams of six, in any male/female combination - aged between 14 and 19 - from schools, youth organisations (Scouts, Guides, Youth Clubs) and Service cadets based in the seven Counties of South West England.
