Scout Hike – May 2018

 

 

 

This year 17 Scouts from Tambo, grouped into three Patrols, are attending the very popular annual Scout Hike with over a thousand other Scouts from NSW. Tambo’s Timewarp, Kool Kids, and Dr. Emmett Brown’s Patrols will be spending the weekend fully self-sufficient and self-directed, hiking the trails of Wingello State Forest completing as many Activity Bases within a prescribed time as possible. The weather is forecast to be clear and sunny with cool nights. It’s a lot of fun and builds leadership, navigation, hiking, cooking, and self-reliance skills in one well-run weekend. Here they are preparing to board the buses in Sydney and head to the forest. Good luck Tambo.

 

Postscript:  A big congratulations to Tambo Kool Kids: Robbie (PL), Adelaide (APL), Estelle, Xavier and Isaac for coming 12th overall and being awarded a Gold Medal.  The Timewarp and Dr. Emmett Brown patrols also had a successful weekend being awarded a Bronze Medal and with the experience gained, hopefully setting up Tambo for continued success next year.
