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 Chipping Sodbury Scout Hut. The competition is split into two sections a 5hr course and an 8hr course. Any scout and explorer team can do the 5 or the 8hr course. We also make allowance for inexperienced teams and non-competitive teams who just want to take part, usually with a leader to help.
This idea/point of the event is as follows:
- Teams of 3-5 members;
- Do as many check points 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.
Last year we opened the event to the county and we were amazed with the amount of entries and enthusiasm about the event – this year we would like to match and improve on this! Also, if there is enough interest, we will run a section for Leaders who can do either the 5hr or 8hr section. Please let us know if you would like to enter a Leaders team.
This year the event is on the 8th October 2016.
