The Results are In!
After an enforced absence of 2 years, Operation Bald Eagle made a welcome return to the County Scouting calendar in October.
For those who have never been involved in the event, it’s made up of The Friday Night Challenge, 30 Day Challenges and finally the OBE Night Hike (16 bases on a 7-mile hike in and around the Rhydd Covert area).
The winning Patrol is the one that gains the most points from all three parts of the competition. Points are earned for good teamwork as well as for successfully completing the challenges.
This year just under 340 Scouts took part making up 61 teams and representing Troops from across the 3 counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. The weather was fine, but cold, and this ensured that an unusually high number of teams completed the main part of the competition – the OBE Night Hike. Throughout the weekend it was evident that everyone was enjoying themselves, but most importantly were giving their best to the event.
And here’s what you want to know – who won? When the scores were all added up the winning teams for 2022 are:
1st Cam Conquerors (1st Cam) with 1921 points
2nd Selsley Sharks (Selsley) with 1908 points
3rd Midsummer (1st Colwall) with 1846 points

WELL DONE to all participants.
And not forgetting….The OBE Team would like to thank the 150 volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure that the event ran as planned and was a huge success.
Next year’s event is scheduled to run 13th to 15 October 2023. Check back on the website for updates and entry details from spring 2023.
