Hastie Stable member Michael Upton joined a team of 4 solicitors from Thorntons and 5 engineers from defence contractors Raytheon, to compete in Exercise Executive Stretch over 4th-6th May. Executive Stretch is run by the Army, who put 7 teams of competitors through 48 hours of day- and night-time physical and mental military challenges at Redford Barracks, Dreghorn Barracks and in the Pentland Hills. At the conclusion of the exercise the Hastie-Thorntons-Raytheon Team were awarded First Prize by 51st Brigade’s Depute Commander, Colonel Stephanie Jackman. Michael Upton said 'The challenges of the Army course are to be thoroughly recommended to anyone who needs to be shaken up and have their cobwebs blown away while strengthening their abilities as a team-player.
