OBE Results are in…

Date: 24th Oct 2022 Author: Lynn Lee

Operation Bald Eagle made a welcome return to the Scouting calendar in October and 340 Scouts competed in 61 teams for the coveted trophy.

Participants and volunteers had a fantastic weekend in cold, but clear conditions, and it was evident that everyone was doing their best and enjoying themselves after a 2-year break during the pandemic.

The winning Patrol is the one that gains the most points across all three parts of the competition – The Friday Night Challenge, Day Challenge (30 bases) and finally the OBE Night Hike (16 bases on a 7-mile hike  in and around the Rhydd Covert area). Points are earned for good teamwork as well as for successfully completing the challenges.

So here’s what you want to know:

Winning team 2022 – The Cam Conquerors

1st      Cam Conquerors (1st Cam) with 1921 points

2nd    Selsley Sharks (Selsley) with 1908 points

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
