The 2011 GMW Hiking Competition was based around the Bowley
Scout Campsite being held on the 15th October. Again this was a
combined event with 5 scout teams and 3 explorer teams. The teams
were lucky enough to have bright sunshine with most completing the
10 mile hike with a few deviations for some. At the presentation 4
scouts from 1st Ashton were presented with their Chief Scouts Gold
Award. The results can be downloaded from here with the final positions
being as follows:
Scouts – 1st – 1st West Timperley A (602 pts), 2nd – 1st Ashton
B (519 pts), 3rd – 1st West Timperley B (517 pts), 4th – Hale Barns
(488 pts), 5th – 1st Ashton A (487 pts)
Explorers – 1st – 3rd Hindley (636 pts), 2nd – 2nd Davyhulme
(576 pts), 3rd – Merlin (Ellesmere) (390 pts)
Thanks as usual to Chris and 1st Ashton for the organisation
plus the Marshalls who helped.

Now seeming customary a visit to the Ice Cream van on route. I
can recommend this van based at the Spring Wood Pinic area and the
owner who was extremely scout friendly.
