I’ve had a thought for a while about organising a weekend competition comprising of a series of challenges for teams to complete – something similar to the kind of thing offered by http://www.ratraceadventure.com/ – but more suited to a rural/urban mix.
Considering the mix of people around Warwick Uni who are into this sort of thing I reckon we could come up with an interesting set of events:
Cycling – Hill Climb (to the top of Ilmington hill coming out of Ilmington is what I had in mind – ouch)
Running – cross country if poss
Rowing – Leamington or Stratford
Horse riding – perhaps up at Moreton in Marsh – might be a bit too specialised
Field Archery – or perhaps clay pigeon shooting
Climbing (warwick climbing wall would be good for this)
And probably a load of others. You’d have a team of 3 people to balance expertise and strengths and have to complete the challenges over a weekend. Points would be scored on either the time it took to complete a challenge or in the case of archery or disc golf on some other basis.
Would probably take quite some organisation but could be fun.

Writing Challenges is back with series 2 of David Morley’s podcasts on creative writing.
David is concentrating on writing fiction this term. We explore the motivations for writing, style, character, points of view and revisions.
Anyone who is interested in creative writing should find these interesting – that book inside you might even get written!
Here is Series 2 episode 1 – The House of Fiction:

Today we launched a new podcast – Writing Challenges with David Morley.
The series relates to his recent book The Cambridge Introduction to Creative Writing but takes one element of the book, writing games, a bit further.
Each week David will discuss an aspect of creative writing and then set a challenge which will give your creative gene a little work out.
What we want is for listeners to send in the results of their challenges to us (via firstname.lastname@example.org) and David will read out and discuss some of the submissions in a special edition of the podcast later in the term.
So have a listen and get writing!
