It was a close competition, but well done to Alpha Three, who after a fantastic Bravo pull and a highly amusing skit were declared the Adventure Challenge champions. Their prize...a massive chocolate cake!
Despite the tiredness and aching muscles, venturers and staff managed to keep the music and dancing going as long as was physically possible (when the electricity was turned off) before an early start the next day and mad rush to get everything packed and cleared up before jumping on the buses up to Bangalore.
While our venturers had a two day journey ahead of them, most of the staff headed back to Mysore Fieldbase, where we've been busy with our "staff wash-up": a mass of paperwork and cleaning Fieldbase ready for the next expedition!
It's the final day of India 08F tomorrow; a chance to finish all final jobs before our staff party in Ooty in the evening. Looking back on the past two months since the first staff arrived mid-June, it seems amazing what has been achieved in such a short space of time - Raleigh India's first 5 week expedition has been a huge success and I for one can't believe we've come to the end!
I hope you've all enjoyed keeping an eye on how everything has been going here and thanks again for all your blog messages during the expedition. Check out our Raleigh website http://www.raleigh.org.uk/ for up-to-date information about all our expeditions and events.
And I look forward to hearing from all our India 08F staff and venturers soon. You've all been fantastic and should be really proud of everything achieved both on Project Phase and during the Adventure Challenge. Myself and Jess, our 08F Expedition Coordinator, will be in touch soon about events and the all important expedition reunion - watch this space.
Bye for now and keep in touch!
