Tempest Explorers Storm it

Our local Explorer Unit successfully evaded their “Catchers” to finish second in the Escape hiking challenge.  Having been dropped off at a mystery location teams had to choose a route over two days, in atrocious weather, where they had to get to specified checkpoints within particular time windows, whilst avoiding Leaders seeking to intercept them.

National Scoutcars Championships

Promoted this year to the Premier Division our Scouts came away with 2nd prize in the Grand Prix.  Ben T was also 3rd in the Scouts Division 1 races. Jo and Nikki grabbed 1st and 2nd in the Ladies Leaders race.

Explorers Prize Expedition

Tempest Explorers won the tough Tahwiri Expedition Challenge.  This involved a weekend of navigating, hiking and camping, carrying their own gear throughout, and getting to check points for targeted times. They were assessed on various aspects during the expedition.
