The KIM SHIELD has been in existence for over a decade. Over that
time, many Patrols have taken up the challenge to become the best Standing Patrol in the Gauteng
Province, and walk away with the coveted trophy.
The event will be held on the 15-16 May 2010, at a venue north of
Johannesburg. This challenge constitutes an incident hike, where you and your patrol will be
required to complete as many bases as possible.
This weekend should be considered as a Patrol hike and camp. You
will be expected to cater your own food and organise your own sleeping arrangements. All patrols
will be sleeping at a common point at the Challenge venue. For the hike, you will not be
required to take your camping equipment, but a day-pack is suggested with a packed lunch and
enough water (2 litres per person per day). Each patrol must supply their own compass.
Directions to the venue will be issued in due course once you and
your patrol have accepted the challenge. The cost for KIM SHIELD will be R50-00 per Scout, which
includes camping fees, event badge and costs that cover running some of the bases. Please
remember that this does not include catering. Please speak to the Patrol Leader regarding food
and other costs
It is hoped that you and your patrol accept the challenge, and
possibly at the end of the challenge, hold the KIM SHIELD trophy aloft!
