Congratulations to 1st Ryton Scout Group who won this year’s relaunched Kirby Shield Competition!
A total of 7 teams from across the district came together to take part in the new format Kirby Shield, ran by Blaydon District Network (18 – 25 year old members of Scouting).
The event consisted of a traditional patrol based camp, with each team cooking their own meals and looking after them selves. They then took part in 6 different activities throughout the weekend which included estimations, fire lighting, shelter building, patrol tent pitching, light weight stoves and pioneering.
There was 21 points between 1st and 7th which is fantastic, there hasn’t been a competition so close for a number of years.
