A team of cubs and Scouts entered the competition, with Kaa and Adam leading, certainly with the Scouts experience from last year we went into the competition with some hope, The team as always cheered and shouted for each and every team mate. Each cub or Scout tried their hardest for the team, with some great results. When the final count up was made a few individual wins, brought another 2nd for the Scouts and a 3rd for the Cubs, however that brought the team trophy – the most important trophy – back to the group – well done everyone
