Les Barnes 2015

Scouts Posted on Tue, May 05, 2015 22:49:19

Straight after the chess tournament – I mean straight after – myself, Bronte and William drove to Cricklade to the start of the incident hike , called Les Barnes, a girl and boy team of older Scouts. Starting in late afternoon at different times, the teams walked into the dark around the lakes of Ashton Keynes. Both getting a little lost, but still coming home in good times. Completing the bases as they went. At the time of writing this we are still awaiting results, but well done to Alfie, Chris, Jack, William, Bronte, Hannah , Bethany and Lennie

just in we finished 12th and an excellent 4th – our best ever result – really well done

After the previous year when all our best Scout players were missing, this year everyone was present, producing three teams of four, with a young cub team and a half also entering. All who took part took the competition seriously but had fun, both in the competition and round the waiting tables with team manager Adam, Kaa and Otter. A special well done to the team of Oliver, Daniel, Sam and Carter, winning all but one point (losing to Ryan from our second team, storming to the trophy we last won in 2013, good news also to the cubs who came in second, a good day with good rewards, well done everyone

Group Events Posted on Tue, May 05, 2015 22:07:31

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
