We had a fantastic turn out for this year's Cubs Scrapheap Challenge Competition, held at 22nd Oxford HQ (Donnington Bridge) on Saturday 2nd March. The eight Cubs from our Pack were joined by a further 53 Cubs from seven other Packs: 10th, 22nd Monday, 22nd Wednesday, 33rd Mowgli, 43rd, Wheatley and Yarnton. 

The Cubs were read a fantastic story (on a One World theme) written by Lorraine Crowther, Cub Leader at the 22nd Oxford Wednesday Pack. They then worked in teams of two to plan and build a model using scrap from the enormous heap in the corner. Throughout the competition they were marked on behaviour, planning, construction, interpretation, team work and clearing up.

The competition was won by Wilfred and Billy from 43rd Oxford. Charlie and Lucy from Wheatley finished in second place and Ruby, Olivia and Isabelle from 33rd Oxford Jacala were third (well done you three!) They will all be attending the County competition on 16th March, joined by Cubs from 22nd Oxford and 33rd Oxford Mowgli.
