Malvern Challenge 2010

Our Scouts entered 4 teams in the annual Malvern Challenge competition. 3,500 Scouts, Guides and Leaders attended the weekend, all fed by the army – impressive!

The Saturday consisted of checkpoint hike across Cleeve Hill, near Winchcombe. Eight checkpoints had to be visited where various challenges were undertaken for points – such as abseiling, crazy t-shirt swapping game, mapping challenge, leaky water tube, gorilla quiz, rifle shooting, mini olympics, and first aid.

Saturday night was the talent show and party, and on Sunday was the Fayre – 100’s of rides and activities.

The weather was fantastic, the activities were fantastic, the food was impressive,  – the toilets were unpleasant……

 All in all another great weekend – they all want to go again next year!!

 Photos to follow.

 Our best placed team was 119th out of 460 teams – not a bad result for first timers!
