Don't forget to take plenty to drink when you go on to the hills. With warm weather at last you can find that in the heat of the day the moor tops can be a thirsty place. A drying breeze can leave you dehydrated surprisingly quickly. So pack an extra bottle of drink and stay happy and healthy on the hills!
Mountain Rescue Awareness
Some of the team will be at Gribdale Gate Near Gt Ayton from 11:00 am tomorrow, as part of the Mountain & Cave Rescue awareness weekend.
Why not come along and see us and meet two of the teams search dogs, Fearn & Bonnie who will play hide and seek with you, also practice your CPR skills and see if you can bring "Annie" back to life.
See you there
3 Members of Cleveland Team have been attending an Advanced Casualty care course this past week, along with other North East Teams - In all 10 candidates took part from Cleveland, Swaledale & Teesdale Mountain rescue teams. The course is held annually and teaches rescuers, advanced medical and life saving skills.
All 10 candidates were successful earlier today after completing theory and practical examinations in the skills taught throughout the course.
Congratulations to all.
Well done Survivors.
Another great year for the Survival, in 2013, and only the second time that we have used a shortened bad weather course.
We had 155 starters, with 147 of those finishing under their own steam, in what were interesting conditions.
With temperatures around 22 degrees colder than for the 2012 event, plus a windchill that took the temperature down to about -12 on the exposed parts of the route I don't think anyone was feeling cheated by the end of the day. Just a relief that the snow that hit other parts of the country decided to stay away from Swainby for the day.
First home were John Goodwin and Richard Clarke, who arrived at the hall together after 4:01, with first lady home being Caroline Graham, coming with a time of 5:12.
A good natured event as always and my thanks to all competitors, supporters, marshals, caterers and the residents of Swainby who made the event a success.
I will try to provide better weather again for next year,
Photos should be available to view on the team website by the end of the week,
