Bowlander 2017

Date: 25 /26 March 2017

Cost: £10.00 per TEAM plus £3.75 (camping fee) per head

Teams of 4/7 members are invited to enter next year’s event, which will test your hiking and map reading skills to a high standard.  This is not a race, but an all-round assessment of skills and stamina on a pre-determined route.

Participants must be between 10½ and under 14½ years of age on 26th March 2017 with a minimum standard of the Navigation Badge Stage 3.  Entry forms will be circulated through your ADC Scouts in the near future, but now is the time to decide if you have the necessary competence to take part in this premier hiking event!  If you think you are good enough, start training now, as April will soon be here.

Navigation still proves to be a challenge for many, but we didn’t lose anyone in 2016 – can you rise to the challenge and produce the winning team in 2017?  For all teams taking part, the Bowlander will enable you to gain the Expedition Challenge Award, and will go a long way towards the Adventure Challenge, Outdoor Challenge, Team Leader & Teamwork Challenge badges, Hill Walker, Hikes Away and Nights Away Awards.  It will also cover the Scoutcraft and Adventure Programme Zone, and could include Fit for Life Zone with some planning!   You can certainly be proud of taking part, and you might just enjoy it as well!

Entry closing date – 26 February 17
