21 AUGUST 2010. The second day at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP Conference began with a 12km run (optional)  from Coogee Beach to Bondi beach at 6am. We were awake at 4:30am... Sarge Dann carbo loaded with a slice of bread and Nutella while I deliberated to go running or otherwise. The flu came uninvited and the Conference had just began. I took a rain check to avoid the flu from worsening and stayed indoor blogging... while Sarge Dann went down alone.

By 7:40am, we were already at the Seaview B, Coogee Bay hotel for the Tactical Advantage Sports Specific Certification (TASSC). There were two sections of the TASSC. The first section was presented by David Murray.

After the first section, Chief Brabon presented Section 2 of the Tactical Advantage Sports Specific Science Certification. The detail is of course.. a trade secret.

We had a few short breaks before continuing with the next item on the program.

We had another short break... and Sarge Dann took the opportunity to re-charge himself...

 Rob Coad showered him with some Coca-cola... but Dann slept through it... 

After having a good laugh at Dann, I went out for a cigarette... alone!! I am an extinct species at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP Australia. Somehow, its either they were very secretive.. but nobody at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP Australia that smokes...

I had to explained a few time to others that I smoke to attract smokers population to join the bootcamp but they didnt buy it...

After the short break.... EXAM!!!

There were two "exams" for us to take today!! First, was the Tactical Advantage Sports Specific Science certicate and secondly, exam for the Seal Pups.

We were given less than half an hour each to complete the 'exam'....
