Best Field Gun experience
Every year I see reluctant pressed men and women turn into enthusiastic superheroes, never fails to impress me!

You're never more alive than on the start line in the final; you never run with the same 18 but evryone who has dared get on the track is a friend for life.

Not an ounce…..probably watched it at Collingwood after a few drinks one year?

Why are you running FG? Whilst casually walking through Abbey Wood on a warm sunny afternoon, on route for some chicken big eats I believe, I was ambushed by a lovely Claire Bear and the ugliest No.1 I have ever seen in my chuff!

It suddenly dawned on me…….this team needs help!! After a couple of training sessions the seed is set, the banter flies and you realise a week off work would be a good idea!

What’s good about ABW FG?
While I can only speak for the ABW team, the crew and trainers have worked very hard to build a good ethos and give us the tools to really enjoy the process. I must admit that I was reserving judgement, the first night of training, having been nagged into turning up by the AFGO. This was quickly overridden as I realised just how committed the team was, and what a positive atmosphere they generate when training. As a first-timer I have really enjoyed the challenge of training and would definitely recommend it to everyone, even if you are on the fence as to whether to participate. Come along and give it a go! Once you have, you’ll be hard pressed to resist a return trip.

Completing your first out back and home full run & putting the blasted thing back in the shed after your last run.

The question is, why aren’t you running FG? I am very competitive and all about the team. This gives me the best of both, a great team and a very competitive event.

Great crew and camaraderie. It’s even better that there are RAF & now a USAF member…AIR POWER!!
