40 L6 Gold participants completed a navigation exercise on Leith Hill on Friday night. The six groups set off confidently, navigating to 8 check points in the forest where they removed markers to show they had completed each location. They were especially efficient and successful groups and, from this snapshot activity, things bode well for the Gold expeditions next year. Well done all!
Night Hike Nov 16: a happy success with 5 groups of award leaders cruising through the delightful forests up Leith Hill on a stupendous night with a beautiful moon and great views of Dorking, Reigate and the Wembley arch across to London (you can see the arch if you look closely at the pic with the view). Groups were spot-on with their navigation and had an enjoyable time. Well done and well sung!
Well done to the 35 Gold award leaders who navigated their way around a dark forest on Leith Hill. Although quite foggy at first, groups quickly got to grips with navigating accurately between the 8 check points along boggy tracks and paths. A useful training exercise and thanks to the staff who helped.
