Let The Games Begin...

Haven't you heard?!? CTC05 is here!!! This year's Combined Training Camp has begun with earnest at Coronation Camp despite the heavy downpour. No amount of rain or shine will be able to dampen the spirits of the mighty sea scouts of 8gts and everyone involved in this camp is trying their very best to put up a good show. After a day of precamp, a first for many of the campers since they had been so used to the three days of precamp in recent years, the competition is getting really intense. I was informed that competition between the patrols are quite healthy and still very much alive although two patrols have taken an early lead. There are a few patrols trailing behind but they don't seem to be bothered much by their progress, or lack of it. They seem to be confident in putting up a strong enough challenge and give the two leading patrols a run for their money.

Eye-catching ships, mind-boggling landscapes, incomprehensible structures, beautiful floats, creative logbooks, colourful banners and the like can be seen at the camp with some very exceptional and magnificient work done on a couple of our trademark ships. A touch of creativity is evident in the gadgetry although in such an early stage and one wonders how grand they will be once they are completed.

Campfire Nite, the summit of CTC05 and the most anticipated event of the year (even more than King Kong and Chronicles of Narnia?!?) will be on Sunday (18/12/2005) at 2000hrs. Go early as it is expected to be jam-packed with people despite the rain. Seats are limited and if this year's Campfire Nite is anything like last year's (with ~500 visitors) you would want to be early. With exotic dances and the most lawak sketches promised for this year's Campfire Nite, how can you forgive yourself for missing this event? I know Camp Chief ASSL Simon Loh will definitely not forgive you! (News is he might be the MC again this year...)

All these are waiting for you at this year's Combined Training Camp. The best thing is, this year's Combined Training Camp falls on a weekend! So what are you waiting for? Take a trip to Coronation Camp and see the splendor of CTC05 now! A word of caution though, bring along an umbrella and mind your step. Be prepared for a muddy experience. :P

Rest assued, we will try to bring coverage of CTC05 to those of you who are outstation/overseas and not able to visit the camp through photos, audio and video files. Check back here regularly for updates.

How To Tie Knots...

Learn how to tie some knots at this useful and interesting website - I Will Knot. Information at the site includes simple description of the knots, tying instructions including short 'videos' and the image of the knots.

The Clock's Ticking...

CTC 2005 is drawing closer every minute. How are the patrols faring? Has anyone taken an early lead? Is it turning out to be a close fight? Who will eventually be crowned overall champions? Just a dozen days to go before the camp starts. Yet another chapter will be written in 8gts history and that chapter begins in 12 days 9 hours 1 min 25 sec....I mean 23 sec....I mean 20 sec....oh screw it...you look at the counter yourself!

Blaze... Fusion... Sapphire... Traxex... Xothique... Zeuryx... make us proud!!!

GOOD LUCK to you all and may it be a memorable camp!
