2011 Lord Derby

With  the  “More girls join scouts” census headline
still in the news a patrol full of girls from 88th
Salford won the 2011 Lord Derby competition. This was held on
Saturday 16th April at Dunham Scout camp site on another
specially ordered sunny day. This year 5 patrols from
3rd/1st Eccles, 43rd Salford,
88th Salford, 2nd Davyhulme and
2nd Stretford (Gorse Hill) entered do such bases as
blind skiing, sawing a piece of wood with a bow saw control by
ropes, knotting with spaghetti, blind fold trail. 2nd
Davyhulme broke the most eggs when trying to get them across the
rectangle but came second in the competition as a whole.
43rd Salford came 3rd. Well done to all the
teams especially to the all girls team from 88th
Salford. Thanks as usual go to the leaders who ran the bases.
