    Boot Camp 2012, an account

    Thank you to our fellow VDP head who has taken the time to write about this years Booty Camp 2k12.

    To speak of boot camp is to speak of a united determination that braved
    geographical adversity, that traversed winding, remote Kerry roads so as
    to meet the welcome of those friendly faces, old and new, who harboured
    a collective enthusiasm for the productive weekend ahead, and who in
    some instances, harboured vodka Super Soakers so as to ensure that such
    productivity was balanced with a “Sure feck it. This is college,” attitude along
    the way.
         Not only was this a good sign for that particular weekend, but for
    the coming year itself.Only in such circumstances would it seem like a good idea
    to cram 30 people into one house for a few days, to swim in the freezing Atlantic
    for longer than is medically advisable, or to ascend a nearby
    Macgillycuddy Reek with sentiments ranging from “This’ll be fun” on the way
    up to “Jeans and Converse were a bad choice” on the way down. However,
    no amount of cold water or accidental mountain tobogganing can hide the fact
    that excursions like this are what make the society great; that it’s worthwhile
    as a volunteer to throw yourself into a gathering with people you may or
    may not know very well, because they, like you, share a willingness to better
    propagate the society’s cause.
           Boot Camp was a way of openly allowing people to share ideas and
    experiences so that such willingness might be better realised. Sleeping on the floor and cooking and cleaning for dozens of people while finding each other’s words
    and deeds infinitely more hilarious than you would in normal circumstances
    happened to be just a bonus
