Using Woking’s Birchmere Campsite and the surrounding Wisley Common, Scouts navigate around a series of bases and complete the incidents including air rifle shooting, pancake flipping, hand-held radio challenge, first aid and many more.
This was a record breaking year, where 26 teams and 137 Scouts participated. In addition to the 40 Scout Leaders running bases, we were fortunate enough to be supported by fantastic Explorer units who maned additional bases so that more teams could take part. As well as the Explorers, Network Team members assisted the Event team, it meant that the total number of Scouters at the event exceeded 220!
As with previous years, the competition was high and the points awarded were very close. 1st Brookwood were the first winners of this event back in 2000 and it gives me great pleasure to confirm that the 2016 winners are again 1st Brookwood (A Team), with 1st Knaphill (Knaphill Badgers) coming second and 1st Send St. Mary’s (Send Green) in third place. Well done to all those that took part and thank you to all those that supported it.
1st Brookwood A team leader Tom Collins said;
“It was a very enjoyable evening with great bases led by Leaders and Explorer Scouts. A couple of the best bases included the Morse code and toxic waste, but all the bases were very enjoyable and it turned out to be a fantastic evening. Thank you to everyone who chipped in to help out make the evening a huge success and especially to Andy for making the pieces fit together”
