Two patrols from our scout troop competed at the North West Region Rally 2016. One of these took out first place as the champion patrol. This patrol was led by PL Dylan Knox, who also took the champion patrol leader prize. Our second patrol took third place. This is a fantastic effort for Scouts Armidale and congratulations to scouts from both patrols for your performance. A photo of the winning patrols will be posted soon.
The Region Scout Rally is being held from Friday 8 April to Sunday 10 April 2016 at Kamilaroi Scout Camp (near Copeton Dam). We had a great time last year, and hope to field a full compliment of patrols this year!
