Operation Twilight success

13 October 2013

We had 8 teams in Operation Twilight this year, this meant 39 of our Scouts from both Troops took part in the largest Scout manhunt in Northumberland. Basically the event is a massive game of hide and seek which sees our teams trying to make their way back from a secret location to the original muster point without getting caught by teams of catchers.

This is the fourth year the event has taken place and the third year the 4th have been involved. The first year we took part we won the Scout trophy.

This year I am pleased to announce that one of our teams won it again! Shadow Hawks managed the entire event without getting caught and made back to the start between the two signal rockets.
