We entered four teams of Cubs into this District orienteering competition. Cubs worked in groups of three to find their way around a course (using bearings) and to record the letters and numbers on each of the bases. The challenge was to get round as fast as possible and to correctly record the details. Our Cubs competed against seven other Packs and our highest scoring team finished in sixth place, only a few minutes behind the winners. They were all very tried and very muddy by the end of the day!
