We had beautiful weather and an excellent turnout for this year's District Boot & Compass Challenge in Bernwood Forest.

Seven teams from Jacala Cubs joined with sixteen other teams from 10th Oxford, 22nd Oxford, 28th Oxford, 33rd Oxford Mowgli, 43rd Oxford, 54th Oxford, Wheatley and Yarnton and competed to find their way around a course in the fastest possible time. Armed with compass, whistle, pencil and answer sheet they were given a series of bearings and had to find their way from base to base, recording the letters and numbers along their way.

Isaac, Xavier and Sam R finished in first place with a very impressive time of 24 minutes. Our other teams finished 5th (Jacala 2 - Jack R, William HC, Tom and Asa), 8th (Jacala 6 - Harry, Raia and Elena), 14th (Jacala 4 - Jake Se, Jack G and Evan), 15th (Jacala 3 - Jake Si, Riaz and Josh Co), 20th (Jacala 7 - Mallee, Cooba, Josh S and Otto ... through they did stp to dig another team out of a bog ...) and 21st (Jacala 5 - Giles, Dan and Sam KW). Well done to all of you!
