Nettle Warrior - 27th July 2008
« on: January 28, 2008, 12:06:14 PM »
Nettle Warrior (AKA summer Tough Guy) - 27th July 2008


Nettle Warrior is an epic assault course for extreme people such as ourselves.  It involves running, climbing over massive frames, crawling through tunnels, running through electric fences, leaping into lakes, and other mud based activities.  Past participants will agree that it kicks a considerable amount of arse.

It would be great if we could get a decent sized group of USMC people to do this year's Nettle Warrior event.  Check out the  Tough Guy Website.  If you are interested then fill out the entry form.  As indicated on the form, the price of entry for a Wetneck (new participant) is 60 if the form is returned before 1st March.  Those narley Tough Guys (previous participants) such as myself can enter for a mere 50 if we return the form before 1st March.

A list of cool people is as follows:
  • Gabbro
  • Kev
  • Sam
  • Hazel
  • Nick
  • Weeman
  • Nick Elf
  • Blonde Vicky
  • (Alfie?)

I want to go!!  please add me.  and I want loads of people to get together coz last year was really good (even though I was standing in the spectators up to my knees in mud and my dolly shoes were not the same again!)  Oh and by the way I want to compete not just watch this year.

p.s. the costumes were horrific - we should get some again this year!!

A team would be great.  We need at least 8 people finishing to get to be given a team position.  Teams can be made up from individual entries (which is a good thing because I have already sent my form off).  There is also a 10% discount for teams of 8 people, however I have already sent my entry form off and will therefore not count towards the 8 people.

I think another spandex uniform would be a good idea.  Short arms and legs worked well last year.  I have trawled my net of fate through the internet of destiny and had very little luck in finding anything appropriate.  Hopefully Mr Elf will be able to provide us with the web page address of the people he used last year.

By the way Nick, does your posting in this thread imply you intend to participate in this year's Nettle Warrior?

i'm in, we should send a team form of 8 or more ppl as well as its lots cheaper - this will be my fourth tough guy event.

i also think we should go up against the cannon carrying team and do the team load carry this year - maybe a coffin or something like that for the ironic effect!?!?!?!
