I’ve created this topic in the hope that bootcamps may become possible again this year. I have attended many in Tresaith (including the very first) and enjoyed and benefitted from them all immensely. I could definitely do with a booster now.
I will keep my eyes open for announcements.
I would even attend a Northern bootcamp if necessary.
Definitely keeping my fingers crossed that these can restart this year!
You can’t join the Gogs! It’s like changing football team!
I’ve never supported any football team so joining the Gogs didn’t bother me!
Well I’ve never really followed football. But as a child in Italy, and in a big city with two teams - you somehow found yourself choosing one: the always winning one (Juventus, owned by Fiat owners) or the always losing one (Torino). I chose the losers, by the way, and just stuck to it even though I don’t know what’s going on in the campionato now.
But it’s just fun to engage in friendly, humorous rivalry like these - as long as it stays friendly and humorous of course!
Having been brought up in Aberdeen and having a Derbyshire wife and a Wisconsin daughter-in-law, I have little difficulty in communicating with people who talk - shall we say - differently.
Anyway, in the very first bootcamp we communicated through the medium of “Twister” where not a word was spoken. Sadly, I’m a lot older and less bendy now.
I remember that Twister game, and if my memory serves me right you were sitting on a chair half the time with just your feet participating
Thanks @HuwJones for starting a thread for us to keep an eye on, fingers crossed!
I would love to join a bootcamp as a first timer!
I feel the same especially with all the meetings that have been cancelled the last couple of years.
I think though I would feel guilty about someone missing out on the experience if I took their place.
Maybe another long weekend could be arranged for people who had attended before.
Excellent idea reflecting your commendable social conscience, @Macky. I’d certainly be up for a get together for previous bootcampers even if @gisella-albertini comes.
Or even though @gisella-albertini comes to spoil the previous bootcampers party!
I always support Wales in the Chwe Gwlad, of course, but in matches where Wales isn’t playing I like to support Italy! Poor old Italy… I can’t wait to see them win a game! Mind you it’s never been the same since Sergio Parisee retired…
I started my SSIW journey with the pandemic and want to take the next step with a bŵtcamp. Really to sign up and book leave from work when it happens so please message me when it does.
Careful what you wish for x x
That was really nice and generous of you @ruth-32! First victory after…7 years is it? Sorry it was against Wales tho’!
Yes I would love a Bootcamp. Have done Levels 1-3 but working through them all again .The idea of an intense Welsh only speaking course and the practice is just what I and I am sure others want.
