Bloody 8th, that's what we got.
Deserved it, I felt we did not.
If it weren't for the twine and nerves we could have won,
And attracted gasps from all around.
The first for the unit it could have been,
Alas, it was not to be seen.
I don't know why the hell I'm composing this lame poem on a whim. The Campcraft Competition finals were held today, and you can probably gather that we got 8th position, out of a total of 150 schools. Not bad, you say? Unfair I retort. So much training, so much disappointment. Ultimately the better team won, but I can't say I'm happy about it. At least the unit's going to get it's 8th Gold next year for the UOPA. We tried our best, but unfortunately we didn't do our best.
