BWB 03 launched its activities for 2014/15 with a trip to Bideford this weekend. 90 gathered at Chilcompton on Froiday mornign to make the journey down to Devon for three days of teambuilding activities to include surfing, training and games and fixtures.
Still feeling a little sore following yesterday’s mission to cross a mountain range, we headed down the valley this time to meet our rafting guides.
We were greeted by drizzle and were so keen to get underway, that the first item of the trip went awol, namely tk’s wash bag with moisturiser and everything. This small disaster played on all our minds as we made our way south via Basel, Zurich and Livigno.
The 16 BWBs chosen for the enrichment project for the summer of 2014, have arrived in the mountains following a dash across France, Switzerland and Italy.
As is the way with such adventures, there was an abundance of excitement as we left Chippenham, both vans loaded with enough pasta to feed the smurfs for a year (not as though Italy does not have enough pasta).
The owners of Chippenham Farm Sales have pledged their support for the new season by making a donation towards the boys' away strips for 2014/15.
With just days to go before the boys reunite for their first training session, the donation has helped to ensure that faces new and old will be well kitted out once more for their first fixtures.
Many thanks to Abbie and her team for the generous contribution to the association.
BWB 03 will be heading to Bideford for pre-season for its annual team-building event.
The boys will depart on the 29th August adn return on the 31st. On the 31st all players and parents are invited to a season opening barbeque at Purnells FC.
We are pleased to announce that Frome based company Netitude has agreed to sponsor the under 12 team's away strip next season. Members of the BWB team went to meet Adam Harling and Nathan Charles from Netitude to take some shots in Frome of the new strip.
