Rugby is my passion, spent some time at professional level when I was around 18 and played in the national divisions when I was 21. Also play the drums and used to give lessons at a local youth club. Have a keen interest in avionics engineering as well. Oh and I like to play abit of poker from time to time :slcool:

I'm hooked on computers. Have been since I bought my Sinclair ZX80 and did the very first Armed Forces computer literacy course in 1980!

My hobby led me to take an HND in Business Information Technology when I left the mob, resulting in a distinguished and fun career as an I.T. consultant working worldwide.

Nowadays I use my skills as a PCSO, running websites for local community groups, skilling up my colleagues and providing gobsmackingly good posters, graphs, charts, mindmaps and Powerpoint presentations to all and sundry.

It's the love of my life, and I can see a gazillion ways that I can use my skills on the job.

Cool, I loved playing drums at school and did get pretty good before I left. It would be great to have my own drumset one day :slsm:

Shame I didn't know this before haha! I recently sold both my kits as I don't give lessons anymore and I don't have time to play in a band :( Would have sold one of them cheaply to you if I had of known!

I'm into Paintball (Woodsball style). I started playing in march last year with my 14yr old son and I was instantly hooked! and now I even volunteer as a Safety Marshall when I'm not playing myself. I've also played Airsoft (Urban CQB style) a couple of times, which is actually a blast to play and we even get to use 9mm BFG's (Training Grenades) indoors!
I enjoy Mountain Biking, but not as much as I used to due to work commitments in my last job!(I hope to change that situation) and I'm also addicted to the gym and running, which I try to do at least three times a week and I also enjoy walking, when ever and where ever I can.

I sing and play guitar in a Rock band. Got together late in life with some buddies for a 'jam' and it escalated from there. Still just a bit of fun, but one heck of a buzz - and does the old confidence some good to. Other hobbies are keeping fit, running and squash, was playing 5 a side, but the old knees were starting to suffer!!
