This year we entered four and a half teams (fourteen Cubs) into the Boot & Compass Challenge, in which Cubs have to find their way around a very muddy course armed with a compass, a whistle and a pencil. Again, this is the most teams we've ever entered and, even though none of our teams won, they all did their best (and all went home well coated in mud). If it’s any comfort to the parents who had to clean their very dirty children, it probably took me even longer to clean the fourteen very muddy compasses!
