The Atmosphere

Our final instalment of our Nukids Series took place on the 14th December and what a turn out! Over 90 of you, from all ages turned up to give their best at the blocs Guy, Tom and special setter ‘Bradley Biceps’. The ‘Topgun’ for this round was 200, meaning it was a pretty hard round!

Coming up close to the festive period everyone was in high spirits. Ely climbing squad made an appearance again and it was a pleasure to have them back again after The Big Flash Nukids, bringing their strong climbers as usual!


Captain Sam, the magician in the kitchen, producing those amazing wraps for you!


Attacking The Blocs

Some super interesting blocs up on the wall for this round, notoriously hard set, with the lapis balls making a come back on the comp wall. Guy producing some techy & momentum based problems, Tom plastering some rather crimpy & strong climbs and Bradley producing some dynamically challenging blocs! A lot of people got ‘sandbagged’ by a number of the problems, so that means plenty of workable projects for those of you who didn’t manage some of the blocs.

Wrap Up For December NuKids

As usual we love hosting our NuKids comp because of the crowd it brings in! Super friendly, psyched locals and not so locals as far as the eye could see (within the centre). Benny wraps this Decembers Nukids with the following statement – “Strange set but good fun, everyone loved getting their hands on the lapis ball bloc, Kieran Hodgson pulled the cards out correctly and won himself £100! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer kid!”.

We’re already looking forward to our next instalment! We hope you guys are too!
