Challenge Day Success

Boyle Scouts have done themselves really proud once again competing in our Annual County Challenge Day held on Saturday 6th March in Lough Keel Campsite. In the Scout Section, our Boyle Team finished in a well deserved 1st place with a great effort put in by the Team throughout the day. In the Cub Section our Monday Cubs also took 1st place with our younger Tuesday Cubs putting in a brilliant team effort to scoop 2nd place.
Teams from Boyle, Ballinamore, Carrick on Shannon, Longford and Lanesboro/Ballyleague took part on the day demonstrating their skills in many areas of Scouting including Air Activities, Backwoods Cooking, Emergencies, Pioneering and Sailing/Rowing.
Congratulations and well done to all 3 teams (pictured below) and their Leaders. Also a word of thanks to all of the Leaders from Boyle and the other Groups who organised and ran a very successful and enjoyable Competition.
Our Boyle teams now go forward to represent Lough Keel Scout County in the National Challenge Competition in Larch Hill, Dublin on 17th/18th April. We wish them all the very best of luck.
