After this they then went out side to take part in some team building tasks, such as blind folded beat the goalie, sheep in a pen (1 person in a team had to direct the rest of their team to a pen but the rest of the team were blind folded and they could only use a whistle to communicate) and many other games. The day ended with a team challenge assault course with the overall winners being Group 2 so well done to them. Even though the weather was not great every one had a brilliant day and a big thank you must go to the Army for a great day.
