Our traditional day out on the famous Merthyr Mawr sand dunes was as usual quite hard work but lots of fun at the same time.
Although the numbers were down from previous years due to summer holidays those lads plus one lass who attended worked like real troopers much to the amusement of some local day trippers. As usual the finale, involving running all the way to the top, proved challenging but as the photo below proves everybody finally made it.
After a relaxing picnic we moved on to Ogmore on Sea for some cold water therapy. It was quite amazing how quickly the group recovered from the morning exploits and there was no stopping them in the sea. Lucky for us there was a very tolerant life guard.
Personally I feel this day makes for great club spirit and perhaps at some point next year other groups would like to join us at some point especially for the picnic.
