I was so impressed with the way it was delivered, making it less scary than it might have been. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Educational, exhilarating, challenging, inspiring, exhausting, exciting and terrifying in equal measure. I’ve never had a more enjoyable week!

A well organised week with excellent focus on playing in a small group
