29th Scouts Take County Emlyn Crown!

Posted on Sunday, September 30th, 2018

A huge congratulations to these 4 Scouts from the 29th Immaculata (Portswood) Troop. We’re all very proud of you!

At the weekend while the weather was rather wet and windy, four scouts from the 29th represented their group and Southampton City District as district winners at the County Emlyn Camping Competition.

Although the sun did come out on Sunday afternoon, the rest of the time was full waterproofs! The weather did not get in their way and they still completed all tasks asked of them.

A very big Well Done to the team for coming away as overall winners and are now Hampshire County Emlyn Champions. (Best Camping Scout Patrol in Hampshire).

During the weekend they also won one of the Special Challenges in Spat a Rat (ball of socks) and managed to hit it 51 times in 20 minutes!

During the weekend one of the Scouts also wrote a prayer (a task to carry out) and won over all. The prayer was so good that our County Commissioner has asked to use it and will put it in the next Scouting Newsletter.
