    Once again it shows the benefits that structured outdoor learning and being put in a trusted position can have. When you get the right people in and it's properly backed the local area really benefits. Good to see it happening, onwards and upwards :D .

    This is great and important work you are doing, Kep. It might seem thankless but it's not. I'm sure you get a kick out of seeing smiles on the faces of those kiddos:)

    Those kids are lucky to have had you for their teacher.

    So are we, your friends on this board.

    Congratulation Kepis on being verified in print as an expert. Now you are definitely legit.

    Next you'll be knighted by the queen.

    As you climb the ladder of success to fame and fortune Sir Mark, don't forget your friends who knew you back when you were just regular people too.

    All kidding aside, you're a good guy, talented, skilled, generous and befitting of this review. May your 15 minutes of fame last a lifetime.

    Bloody great job me matey. Now all we need is this to be copied all over the UK and most of Europe and there might be a chance for the youth to develop into confident and hard working adults. Too much mollycoddleling for too long, enoughs enough.

    That's awesome , Mark. Reminds me of that old saying, "give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." You've given those kids some skills that will serve them throughout their whole lives, I think that's awesome.

    Great job, Kepis. Teaching kids about the outdoors is probably the best way in the world to keep them out of trouble in life. Had a judge once over here who said he had never seen a kid who hunted and fished who got into major trouble as a juvenile. I think my years of experience would tend to show the same thing.
    Thanks for what you do.
