This year the event is on the 12th October 2019.
Every year in October we run a night exercise called the Sodbury Challenge. It is based in the South Cotswold district and run from the 1st Chipping Sodbury Scout Hut.
The event is open to all Scouts, Explorers, Guides, Network and Leaders. The Challenge consists of a 5 and an 8 hour exercise. The 5 hour challenge is open to ages up to 14, the 8 hour exercise is open to those aged 14 and above. We also allow inexperienced teams and non-competitive teams who just want to take part, usually with a leader to help.
The format of the event is as follows:
- Teams of 3-5 members;
- Do as many checkpoints in the 5 or 8hrs;
- Checkpoints have different scores;
- Highest score in the time allowed wins;
- Course is marshalled but teams work on their own.
If you are interested, more information can be found on our website (link below). The letter and entry form will be published online soon.
If you have any other groups that may like to enter, please don’t hesitate to forward this email.
I have attached a leaflet that you can use to help promote if you wish.
