October 2002

Make-up for the Quizzes

October 2 was the last chance for the trainees to get a PASSING mark on their quizzes. Seems the results were so hush-hush, the training com won't even allow members to see the checked test papers. Incidentally, this is also our last day at Valero Car Park.

Skills Test Take II

Only a handful passed the quizzicles, and only 11 passed all the Skills test. Now everybody is going to have to retake a test or two on October 5, 2002. You are required to pass ALL requirements before you are eligible to be inducted.

1st 15km Qualifying Run on October 6, 2002

After 2 recons of the 15km Qualifying run at UPLB, and 1 trial run at Makati, can the trainees make it in less than 2 hours?

September 2002

3rd Training Climb on August 31-September 2

We're beyond the halfway point of our 2002 Training Season, and the trainees still don't know each other! How much more for the names of the members?

3 groups Tumambay lang sa Outdoor Rock Climbing!

Almost 6:00am na naka-alis ang mga trainees sa McDonalds St. Francis Square mula sa usapang 5:30am.

Rain or Shine, tuloy pa rin!

Trainees learned basic ropemanship and overcame their fear of going down from the side of a building in the Rappeling Training at Camp Vicente Lim in Canlubang, Laguna last September 8.

First Aid, Second take

More than 1/3 of the trainees are taking their First Aid Training outside the original schedule.
