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:
1st Cam Conquerors (1st Cam) with 1921 points
2nd Selsley Sharks (Selsley) with 1908 points
3rd Midsummer (1st Colwall) with 1846 points
CONGRATULATIONS to these three teams
And further congratulations to:
