District Hike 2008
That rugby game cost us the lead!!!
We never quite determined if it was a competition or not, anyway there were so many distractions any thought of winning went clearly up in the air which, by the way, was a little damp. Spontaneous games of rugby and the pooh stick championships were a delighful distraction!
An excellent team – lacking on experience, but enthusiastic and up for it in every other way. The leader shadows really did not have a lot to do. Scout imposed time scales to reach the next checkpoint, Scouts correcting leaders map reading, well Daves actually, all resulted in a great fun, if not exhausting, 10 mile stroll around the Gordano Valley. For some Scouts the last leg was done sleep walking…
Well done team!!
