Chris:

“My feedback – the kids were great, thanks to all the
leaders for preparing them correctly and putting them in the right
mindset. I liked the route, it was relatively straight forward but
quite demanding for the Scouts. Thanks to all those leaders who
thanked us and helped Marshall the checkpoints.”
