This weekend saw us back in the woods for another Greenhorn course. The weathers God blessed us with stunning weather and Baccus blessed us with the company of a cracking group!!
The group was smaller than usual with only 5 students in the end as 3 cancelled, and of course myself and Steve Wiggins instructing.
The overall level of teaching and student succeess was very high indeed - will smaller courses be the way ahead? Maybe I certainly enjoyed the course and the campfire banter far more with 5 students than when we run the course at 16 odd people.
More importantly the instructor to student ratio was better (hence the high success) and after debrief on Sunday I like to think we sent away 5 new friends who also enjoyed the weekend not just for the course but for the warmth of the group they experienced.
