Cubs Boot & Compass Challenge

posted 24 Mar 2013, 12:44 by ADC Cubs
We spent a chilly afternoon outside for this year's Boot & Compass Challenge, but despite the snow on the ground, the deep muddy puddles and the temperatures of -2 we had a fantastic time.

Fifteen teams from 10th Oxford, 22nd Oxford, 33rd Oxford, 43rd Oxford and Wheatley competed to find their way around a course in the fastest possible time. Armed with compass, whistle, pencil and answer sheet they were given a series of bearings and had to find their way from base to base, recording the letters and numbers along their way.

The competition was won by a team from 10th Oxford, with their other team in second place. A team from 33rd Oxford Mowgli finished in third place. They will all go through to the County Bonner Trophy competition in October.
