Apex Special Ops: The Movie

The first batch of Apex Challenge event DVDs are now being posted out and should be landing on your doormats in the next few days.

More than 60 copies of Apex Special Ops: The Movie have now been created and dispatched. It features a full 17 minute film of the weekend event, together with extra bonus material.

With dramatic footage from every stage of the event, including Friday's Enemy Beacons Challenge, the tough activities on Saturday and Sunday's Storming the Fort, this is both a valuable memento from the weekend and also a great way to promote what you've done to others inside and outside your own groups.

If you didn't get chance to pre-order your DVD at the event but would still like a copy, simply contact us via the website for details. We'll then get one straight in the post to you.

Lost anything?

Despite the best efforts to reunite any lost property with its owners at the event, we still have quite a few items which were left behind at Apex Base Camp.
If any of this is yours, please contact us as soon as possible as we can only keep hold of it for a week, before it will pass into enemy hands - apparently they're wanting to get some better gear so they can put up more of a fight next time.
So this is the stuff we're holding. Remember you must claim it before Sunday 13th October, or it will be gone.

Victory declared at Apex Special Ops

The Apex Army has secured victory on a three day mission as part of Apex Special Ops. Teams were recruited into an elite group of personnel on Friday night to respond to an enemy invasion in the area surrounding Strensall Common military training facility.

Their task began on Friday evening when teams had to locate a series of enemy landing beacons within 60 minutes. Saturday's task was to gain ground from the enemy by securing as many sensitive locations as possible. And on Sunday teams had to deactivate 30 landmines while trying safeguard a rare and endangered parrot which had strayed into the path of the invading forces. Bizarre but true.

Teams enjoyed a bright sunny weekend, dozens of activities and a night of live entertainment to relax on Saturday evening. Check out all the details online now!
