District Scout incident Hike - Sun 23 Nov 2008

The hike was over a 4 Km course between 88th’ HQ and 306th HQ. 

Unfortunately there was only a team from each troop, we had hoped for more. Each team set off from their own HQ and finished at the other. There were 4 incidents one at each HQ and one at each of the two check points. There were two problem solving incidents, one with a trailer and the other with a pipe bucket and lots of rope. 

There was a first aid incident, which indicated that you do not want to break your leg and have a Manchester scout sort you out! The final incident was prusiking up a rope. The event was a close run thing, 88th won with 46 points and 306 were runners up with 38.5 points. 

Thanks to the Didsbury Viking Explorer scouts for organising it and all the leaders who helped at the incidents. It is hoped to run the event next year and to get moretroops attending.
