The inflatables will be featuring 2 brand new items (I’ll save those as a surprise) and a bungee run challenge with a difference.
The Girls’ Brigade has got some cool crafts lined up for you to do as well as their disco-diva preparation sessions.
If films are your thing then the cinema has a fantastic mix for your viewing pleasure. From The Constant Gardener to Bruce Almighty and Amazing Grace to Happy Feet there’s plenty to get you thinking or just to keep you entertained.
Christian Aid and the Church of Scotland’s Mission and Discipleship Council are teaming up once more to bring you the MaD Hoose. There will be something for everyone with FairTrade eats and drinks in the COSY coffeehouse as well as mad games, challenges and great educational resources. A giant ‘nots and crosses’ tournament is planned for the weekend down in Stage 2, with the final taking place during Plunge on Saturday night. And don’t forget to get your tonsils limbered up or your fingers free for the Singstar and Guitar Hero sessions.
The labyrinth, ceilidh and disco will all be there too.
There are plenty more things in the pipeline, but I think I’ll save them for another day.]]>
Your Crossover webmaster has all manner of links to just the right people and was able to obtain a copy of the interviews. They are presented here for for listening pleasure.
First up is Alan Hunter, the Crossover Management Group chairman. He gives a bit of background on what Crossover is all about:
Stuart Arnott is in charge (or so he tells us) of the Activities Team. The team put together an excellent range of events and activities for the weekend but it doesn’t just happen. There’s a lot of work involved and Stuart gives us an insight into that:
Last, but by no means least, is Richard Marshall who is part of Stuart’s hard-working team. Richard offers us some personal reflections on what Crossover means to him:]]>
It’s a Knockout will be happening on Saturday evening this year and they’re hoping to accommodate twice as many teams this time. They’re also hoping to make use of the inflatables too, so it’s bound to be a manic, bouncy time. There are two team places reserved for Saturday day visitors this year, but remember to book in early.
Don’t forget to sign up on Friday evening for the team events!
They’ve also lined up a few new activities including circus skills, hip-hop dance workshops and, for those who like to make a lot of noise, there’s a trash band. Hopefully that doesn’t mean you’ll sound like rubbish, but it’s about making sweet music with all sorts of things.
There’s plenty more lined up - lots of old favourites and some new challenges from the Broomlee staff as well.
Keep checking back for more teasers.]]>
We’ll be having a special birthday bash all weekend and you’re invited to the party. Get ready for some familiar friends and some fabulous new activities. We’d love to see you all there, so get pestering your youth leader or start enthusing your youths and make a date to be at Crossover this year.
Information packs will be available to download in a day or so and, to keep our paper waste to a minimum, we’ll have a publicity poster available to download in about a week. That way, only the ones that are needed will be printed. There will also be email-shots going out from different agencies over the next few weeks. But that also means that if you’re reading this, you’ll need to let everyone know about Crossover.
Do keep checking back here for more updates and teasers.]]>
