Photo of the Month - November 2001

A good action photo is always welcome when it comes to illustrating what Scouts get out and do. Richard Blades of the 16th Harrogate Scout Group, Harrogate & Nidderdale District, North Yorkshire took this photo on 6th October 2001 at a Whitewater Day. Martin Blades is the subject of the photo but Richard does not say if they are related.
On a white water introduction day in October organised by North Yorkshire Scouts Water Sports Section at Sleningford on the river Ure the water was a bit too white for most paddlers but not Martin. Did Martin have a boat under him or was he just sat on a rock?
