skateboarding round CTCRM

#1
Hi again guys. When I leave Derby for CTC I'm thinking of taking my skateboard with me. Skating is a hobby of mine and I enjoy doing it at weekends and in the evenings. I'm pretty good and can do various tricks, stunts and rail grinds. CTC seems an ideal place for this with it's long stretches of road, rails, steps and walls. So when my duties as a recruit are over and I'm allowed to throw asside my CS95 attires and slap on my beanie hat, baggie jeans, Bilabong t-shirt, earings and eyebrow ring will I also be allowed to get the board out my locker and go for a skate round camp?

Surely the Royal marines caters for sports like this. I was always told that you could do anyt sport in the marines and the corps actively encourages sports amongst it's ranks. So would skating round CTCRM be acceptable? I particlarly fancy having a good sk8 round the drill square.

The First Drill is a renowned Xtreme sportz fan, he's more into roller blading and BMX though (Remeber your helmet and elbow/knee pads though Safety First at all times in the Corps), so I'm sure he'll let you use the 1/2 pipe and jumps etc that are set up on the Bottom Field.
How come you've moved to Derby are you taking the journey in stages and aren't you a bit late for your first week?

I used to skateboard around Pompey Dockyard. I used to have my skateboard on board. But I was already in the Navy at this point. I never skateboarded around Nelson though.

I don't suggest you take your board to CTC.

Secondly stop trying to wind everyone up

"Drill square", must be one of those bullet stoppers terms.... If the pongo wants to grow his hair, skate, take dodgy pharmaceuticals, do MMA, play Xbox, then CTC is the place to do it!!!

Nails,

On the first day back after Xmas leave, all recruits are expected to wear their Christmas jumpers on 1st Parade.

Just to give you the heads up, like, man. Stop you getting into trouble in case you turn up in ordinary CS95s.

Last year at CTC someone did try and use the steps to the HQ building as a vehicle jump and use a pussers landrover to try and jump over the HQ building, however it did not quite go to plan!!!
