The Scouts complete a practice hike
Posted on 14 February 2017
In preparation for the Tonbridge District incident hike coming up on 26th February, the Scout Section completed an exercise in navigation and team building around the fields of Hadlow. This demonstrated that the Scouts have the skills to compete in the 2017 Operation Founder event. Some of our newest Scouts performed excellently and show great promise for future navigators. The Scouts covered around 5 miles on the practice exercise taking in all sorts of terrain across the North Downs and part of the national footway (Greensands Way). They put into practice their skills in walking on a bearing, aligning their maps to their compass’s & identifying landmarks on their OS maps (Pylons, Streams & Contour lines). The 8th Tonbridge Scouts are confident of a high placed finish in this annual competition.
