My First Lead Essays

by Chris Rowlands and Simon Marsh of DMM The Judges (click to enlarge) We have read all of the My First Outdoor Lead essays and have come up with a short-list of ten. It was very difficult for us to come up with this list as there were so many good essays and experiences that we could relate to and that were well written. Here they are: 13. The Scent of the Sky by John Lisle: Read Here 15. Cat Got Your Tongue? (1969) by full stottie: Read Here 22. Great Expectations by Uriah: Read Here 33. Petticoats and Promises by A Jo by any Other Name: Read Here 50. Confessions of a Coward by nicolaw: Read Here 55. Growing Up by sarah79: Read Here 85. A new life for old… by Simon: Read Here 104. Move On by Mark HW: Read Here 105. One Hundred Years Ago by Jim Nevill: Read Here 118. M1, Avon Gorge – 1986 by RJC: Read Here We´ve really enjoyed reading them all and thank you to everyone who took the time to sit down and write them. We are so pleased in fact that in addition to the first prize of a £500 rack and spot prizes for all we have added two runner up prizes of £100 of DMM gear each. Give us a week to make up our minds here in the DMM office and of course your comments and opinions are welcomed. The overall winner will be presented with their prize at the DMM Factory on Friday 7th of March (if they can make it) which happens to be the start of the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival where we will also read out some of the winning and favourite entries. Once again thank you. Chris and Simon – DMM
