Day 5 started at TRU
We then headed over to one of the lecture rooms where Ian then had a talk about the pathways that you could go in get trained to be accredited in mountain based adventures whether it be hiking mountain climbing, ski, etc. but he out lined that you could only be come certified in one of those areas. Ross Cloutier then spoke about more risk management in the legal aspects of what going on and the problems with waivers and the insurance side of things.
We then got a footy that Greg bought for us which then lifted the mood of everyone. We then took a tour of the Tournament Capital Centre where it was another multi-purpose facility having a gym, indoor running track, basketball areas, indoor swimming pool and also had a discuss throwing area under the facility. That it could host major regional events there as well.
We then went out onto the running track where the BC loins were doing there training camp. And that we got to go behind the scenes and look at their field in which it was fake grass which had small grounded pieces in the fake grass. Later on we then came back to watch the BC loins. Watch them was an experience seeing how big they are and that they take their training pretty serious in the off season.
We then went rock climbing with some of Greg’s friends that owned a little business where we were all there for about one and a half hours. The ropes were tie a knot method than clipping in. after we had our go Simon then showed us how real rock climbing is done using clip in to the rock or the latches that go in between the gaps.
On the way back to the hotel we all got ice cream J
