On Wednesday night RATS training had an interesting twist.

Brian, Jude and Janelle had set up a "rogaine" around the old CHCH Women's Hospital for some members of Brians work as a fun Friday activity so could not think of anything better than doing it with RATS...in the dark...with the clues a little trickier to find.
