The 2017 Rickard Shield competition will be held on the weekend 11th/12th March. Please add the date to your programmes and share it with your Explorers, Network members & Senior Section Guides.
As always the event will be held within a 12 mile radius of Bristol and involves an 18km night navigation hike with questions & fiendish challenges to complete along the way.
No previous experience of night navigation is required as long as at least 2 of your team can read a map and compass.
All food and refreshments are provided including breakfast rolls. Camp over and get together for a presentation of the trophies before pick up at 9.30 on Sunday morning.
This event is in its 14th year and is always enjoyed and well supported.
Booking forms will be available to download on the Avonscouts website from the 1st week of January.
