On Saturday 7th October, there was a district night hike, with 20 scout teams doing an 8 mile hike course in the Dorking area. This started at 8pm and finished at around 2:30 AM. 1st Brookwood fielded two teams, a training team who had less experience and so were supported by leaders, though did the tests by themselves, along with most of the navigation. There was also a Brookwood ‘A team’ who plotted a route and then walked the course on their own. The course had a number of checkpoints, where Scouts had to do tests on things like first aid, teamwork etc. We were very pleased with their performance, both groups worked well together as teams and supported each other.
