We'll keep it brief this week as it's part 2 of 2 tasks with Juan and Jubilee Primary School.

We kicked off the evening with a brief warm up / activation session and the AA asked everyone to share an interesting fact with the group (it could be about themselves or it could be a general fact but bonus points for the personal ones!) We were 'dazzled' by science (it takes more energy to get from the earth to the moon than the moon to Mars due to gravitational pull), medicine (the first clinical trials conducted were on ships to discover that Vit C cures Scurvy), and Zoology (cats drink salt water and the collective Noun for a group of Zebra's is..... a DAZZLE!)

Manuel also shared a story from childhood so gained thousands of extra points but sadly lost them all as the outcome of the story was Net negative for ornithology.... sorry my friend.

A quick 1.7kms up a VERY slight incline and we were back at the school to see Juan (we love Juan) and he shared that the soil we were due to shift had actually been moved by the tradesmen so we were tasked with binning the old timbers then pebble collecting (seriously) and weeding duty. It turned out that there was a huge amount of weeding once you looked for it, along every wall and up stairs so in the end we maxed out our time and collected a load.

In keeping with the Astronomical theme the run back was like a re-entry to Earth's atmosphere with runners peeling away to head home leaving a crew of 5 arriving back at base (Cape Papa's).

Thanks to Maya for chatting to me about all things Task Force, it's great to have interest in the group and Aimee I'll be sending more details your way soon, and Charlotte for back marking this evening.

Poor Manuel. To gain those points and then to be removed in a flutter. Twitch, twitch.
