Kim Shield

1st Discovery Scout Group entered 5 teams in total. Well done to Byron Van Gool for leading Sables who came second.

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!
