The return of the Famous Revolution GAMES NIGHT
(Fancy Dress Theme: Olympians i.e famous sporting heros from times gone by)
Revolution 2012 will be re-introducing the much loved Revolution Games Night. Established at Revolution 1998 by the quick thinking management team when a Disco did not show-up, Games Night became one of the Revolution highlights for the next 6 years. Partake in many games to win some awesome prizes, such as a bag of sweets. It's all about the taking part, so let the games begin!
After the Opening Ceremony it’s time to kick-start the party with resident DJ Steve on the decks providing a mix of cheesy and classic tunes through the ages.
Fancy Dress Theme: Country Representation
Great Activities in a splendid setting
The activities for Revolution are based all around the Isle of Wight, which provides your units the opportunity to Explore the Island as you drive around taking in the breath-taking and famous scenery. Will you make Sandcastles on one of the blue flag beaches, take a chair lift to the Needles, climb some of the downs or eat cream teas in Godshill...
From the Island that invented the Hovercraft you will experience driving these 500cc 2 stroke twin carb engined hovering machines, the fastest and most powerful around. Driving a hovercraft is unlike anything else you will experience, you will need to make sure you use your body weight and lean the correct way to steer these round the track.
“After a morning of on-site activities, this sadly brings Revolution 2012 the historic 18th National activity camp for Explorer & Network units held on the Isle of Wight to a dramatic close.
We know you had a great time, so many activities with so many like minded people, how can you not have enjoyed yourselves.
Time to bid farewell until another blinding Revolution.
