Meeting – 08/05/2014 – Review Awesome Walls

In Attendance: Paul, Matt, Tony, John, Jake, Adam, Jenny M and Ian.

A review was carried out of our trip to Awesome Walls. It was agreed that the group should pursue more rock climbing/bouldering challenges.

Some of the group showed some real talent for climbing on the trip. It was agreed that we would look into doing a course with Awesome Walls with a view to learning ropework and progressing in the sport.

On the trip to Kerry a few more names were taken. Tony, John, Adam, Ian and Jenny M are confirmed.

In relation to the Venture Adventure Challenge Paul has discovered that he will be back from holidays before then. So himself and Tony will now make a team.

Adam, John and Jake are still undecided about the trip.

After finishing the first intellectual challenge, we decided to move onto the spiritual spice.

The group discussed various possibilities for spiritual challenges. We discussed Mindfulness and everyone agreed to do some everyday task in a mindful way before the next meeting.

For a challenge it was suggested that we should ask a Yoga instructor to come and do a session with the group. Everyone agreed to give it a go.

Action items:

Figure out a group rate for the rockclimbing wall. Checking out the NICAS awards scheme and see if we can do it.

Find some yoga instructors and see if they will take on a group of reprobates for an introductory session.
