Night Hike Results

Congratulations to Intrepid Explorers ‘A’ and 2nd Balsall Common Scouts ‘A’ on winning the Walking stick and boot trophies respectively.

This year we were joined by Alex Peace-Gadsby, Chief Commissioner of England.  Alex met many of the Scouts and adults, awarded the prizes and spent the evening freezing with the rest of us up at the food check point, where she used her skills to try and tempt Scouts with vegetable soup (tomato was also an option).

This year’s night hike saw 55 teams enter with over 360 young people, plus leaders, walking through the freezing night from 7.30pm until just before 5am.

We’d like to take the opportunity to Thank;

Paul Webb and Rich Budd for organising the walk.
Chris Staite and George Wilkinson for time keeping the teams (and producing the results below).
The helpers who set up the riding club before everyone arrived.
The check-in team, who kit checked all the teams before walking.
The check point teams, who sat out in the cold, in the middle of no where all night.
The catering teams at both the riding club and out at check point 3 for feeding everyone (twice!).
Solihull Riding club, for letting us use their facilities as HQ.
All the leaders who supported and walked with the teams.
Soilhull Cole Network for providing a sweep team again.
Anyone else who helped in anyway, that isn’t mentioned above!
And Alex Peace-Gadsby, Chief Commissioner of England, for supporting the event and awarding the trophies.
