That's a surprise
Second place - well done!

Over 100 teams took part in this exciting & challenging event.

Well done to all our team members on an excellent performance and on gaining 2nd place in this County-wide event.

Congratulations to 1st Warton, our fellow participants from Lonsdale, on achieving a well-deserved win.

The idea of the competition is for teams of 3 (from both Scouting and Guiding) to navigate around bases on Beacon Fell Country Park over a 3 hour period.

Each base earns the teams points which are totalled up to reveal the winners back at Waddecar campsite later in the afternoon. The bases are traditionally Scouting skill orientated however in more recent years the Crew have moved with the times and a few more modern practical skills have been thrown in.

Base examples include Knots, First Aid, Car Maintenance, Knife and Axe and DIY,tent pitching, creativity, knotting, whipping, camp gadgets, map reading, navigation
