Bowlander 2019

Training Day: 2 February 2019

Training Weekend: 2/3 March 2019

Event Date: 30/31 March 2019

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 30th March 2019 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 March will soon be here.

Navigation still proves to be a challenge for many, but we didn’t lose anyone in 2018 – can you rise to the challenge and produce the winning team in 2019? 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 – 3 March 2019

    Hi ,my daughter is with Forton scouts and she has missed out for the second year running on being in the teams they enter. Can you have more than 7 in a team or could we make up our own team with a young leader?
    Thank you

      7 is the maximum number of Scouts allowed in a team – this is a long standing rule.
      Entrants can only be Scout age 11-14.5 yrs. A Young Leader could be included in what is classed as a “Training Team” but such teams do not compete for the trophy.
      I hope that that answers your query.
