Monday was supposed to be bright sunshine. King's College Bryanston was bringing 60 grade 7's for a day of fun and adventure to Paddle Power. Instead I woke at 5.30 to the dreaded sound of rain on our thatch roof. Don't get me wrong. I love the rain and we need it to fill the river to make our river rafting more fun.
The drizzle slowed for a while, became a shower followed by drizzle and more showers.
Do we load the rafts and transport them to the launch site? Shall we set up the target shooting stations? Do I recommend that the school postpones? Will they want to come? My mood was as dark as the clouds.
Not only were the youngsters river rafting but we had a whole day planned for Crossbow, Archery and Paintball Target Shooting as well.
