The evening’s activity centered around the skits each group had been working hard to prepare. Charlie One's story telling style gave a great overview of their phase complete with Macarena dancing and Anu’s snoring; Echo Three opted for a TV news report and belted out some cleverly rewritten pop songs to tell their tale; Echo Four produced an amazing musical medley with theatrics of Broadway standard; Tango Five were the winners of the evening with a skit that had it all - flair, comedy, musicality and entertainment with a particularly memorable dancing elephant impression by Lynne; Tango Six’s skit focused on one particular ‘incident’ during their phase which they worked out through the medium of Jeremy Kyle – to very much humorous effects!
The night’s activities were not over though, as we sent them all down to their dorm to create fancy dress outfits out of bin bags. Little did they know that whilst this was happening we’d hidden to ambush them with Holi paint!
It was an explosion of colour and frenzy as the venturers were initially stunned but then found their paints and retaliated aginst the PMs. It wasn’t long until we were all the colours of the rainbow.
It was then up to the roof to party into the night …
This morning the group visited a local temple to pose for the expedition photograph and film the last scene for the music video each group has been shooting scenes for during Phase One.
Then, when they were least expecting it we announced Phase Two allocations by giving each venturer and PM a bracelet and asking them to find everyone else who had the same one!
The expedition was given a good stir as the alpha groups have all been mixed up to form Phase Two groups:
Coenraad de Mol van Otterloo
Lucy Marie Flint
Nga Yee (Irene) Yiu
Elisabeth van der Zee
Whlist PMs Phil Dart and Christina Ambrose join the Field base family.
If you’d like to send a message to anyone whilst they're out on phase just add a comment to the bottom of any blog entry by clicking the link. Don't forget to tell us who the message is for including their full name and project group. Then select name/URL from the dropdown menu to tell us who it's from (URL can be left blank). Please be aware that we might not be able to publish all personal messages but we will make sure they are distributed via 'The Loop' but do note this may happen only once during the phase.
It's only a quick Changeover, as everyone deploys out tomorrow for Phase Two. From Fieldbase, Polly B will be heading out with Tango 5 for a week's trekking, whilst Polly C is off to Echo Four, keen to experience the self titled 'glampsite' and Del is Echo Three bound to get his dig on.
The lovely Christina will be taking over the blogging reigns until my return ...
