cooking County Flag Competition 2008

Almost 100 young people took part in this year's County Flag challenge hike. As the sun shone down in Calverton young people from across the County gathered to put some of the skills they have learned in Scouting into practice.

All of the young people had a great time and showed high levels of skill in first aid, map reading and cooking. Scouts and Explorers spent a total of about 7 hours walking and two hours cooking and then camped overnight. The Cub Scouts spent the afternoon walking a shorter version of the challenge hike. We hope that as a result of the day that Cub Scouts will be eligible for the Road Safety badge and another Hikes Away award.

Well done to everyone who entered this year's County Flag competition and a huge thank you to everyone that has helped run the event and make it happen. I have listed below the results for this year's competition.
