Team Papa - winning GBC 2016
A big congratulations to the 4 scout teams who competed in this weekend's Great Breakfast Chase at Dorneywood. Our 4 teams all finished in the top ten, which is an excellent achievement. The event entails each team of scouts working out a route for a night incident hike, navigating around the countryside during the hours of darkness and completing tasks (this year the tasks included crossing a 'minefield', memory tests, solving puzzles), for each task completed, an item of breakfast is gained. The team with the highest overall score in completing the tasks is the overall winner. This year's event saw teams from 9 scout troops, who all seemed to enjoy being out after dark. The overall winning team this year, was our own team Papa (each team is given a phonetic letter), so a big well done to William, Rhys, Lewis and Nathan on bringing the trophy back to Twyford for another year - this also gives Twyford valuable points towards the district Murray Plate competition.
