OAMAAM Dartmoor Yomp

Hope you don't mind me advertising this event (as its being organised by 'rival' bootie web forum) but we would like to get the word out to as many as possible:

The members of the ONCE A MARINE ALWAYS A MARINE web forum are extending an invitation to all injured service and ex-service personnel, who are undergoing or completed their rehabilitation, to join them in the DARTMOOR YOMP based around Princetown, Devon on the last weekend in September (26-28 Sept 08).

The main event on the Saturday will consist of a 12-mile walk across the southern part of Dartmoor utilising the bridleways and footpaths and is being designed to be accessible for all levels of physical ability. The walk will have multiple access points so that participants can either do the full 12 miles or shorter stages depending on their level of desire or ability. Volunteers have offered to provide horses and horse-drawn carts for those who would prefer to ride and the loan of some all-terrain wheelchairs is being investigated.

For those who do not wish to participate in the "Yomp" they will be more than welcome to join the social events. The main base for the event will be "The Plume of Feathers" in Princetown, which is well known to all users of the moor. There will be a reception on the Friday evening and on the Saturday evening there will be an informal social gathering at The Plume of Feathers with a hog roast.

Accommodation has been booked at the ‘Plume of Feathers’ – including B&B, Group Rooms, Bunk Houses – and pitches for 75 Tents and 10 Caravans.

The objective of the event is to give something back to those who have been injured in the course of their duty, to provide them with a physical challenge and also social events hosted by serving and former Royal Marines – not mention raise loads of money for Help for Heroes. If the "Dartmoor Yomp" is a success we hope to make this an annual outing.

Thanks for reading this post.
