Oban Ladies Squash Club dared to be different at the weekend.

Over two days of mud, sweat and tears, the courageous squad of 14 women completed an assault course of log carrying, Ganavan beach sand crawling and various other tortuous activities.

The brainchild of Colin MacNiven and Jackie Kersley, who look after the ladies squash training team, they decided to push the team to new levels of fitness and personal achievement.

The two-day course was a huge success and very entertaining for the tourists who looked on with total bemusement.

The event was only made possible by sponsors Neil McGougan Builders, Puffin Dive Centre and Oban Filling Station.
