For the first time in a few years the Scouts entered a team in the Forest Boundary Hike. This is an event for teams of Scouts, Explorers, Networkers and Leaders.
The teams have to hike around a 10 mile course in less than four hours. Each team member has to carry a certain weight in their rucksacks. Scouts have to cary 10Lbs (4.5Kg) Explorers 15Lbs and Leaders 20Lbs. The Scouts set off first but quickly became unstuck taking a wrong turn. Finally a leader team consisting of Mark and Dunks from the 3GP Scout Leadership team and Craig from the 2nd Collier Row leadership team. The Scouts only made it to the 2nd checkpoint. Like many a 3GP team before them they took a wrong turning and never made it to checkpoint three.
The leaders finished around midnight and were fastest by just two minutes. The Explorers won the Explorer trophy for the third year in a row, only about 5 minutes slower than the leaders.
