DOZENS of Scouts took part in an annual navigation competition.

The Salisbury and South Wilts District Scouts Grose Trophy took place in The Winterbournes.

The competition involves Scouts navigating between a number of check points in a circular route. At each of these check points the Scouts were given a task or challenge to complete on which they are marked out of ten points. The winner of the competition is the group who gains the most points.

This year, 11 teams competed meaning that around 70 local Scouts took part in challenges including blindfold tent pitching, first aid incident, mastermind, mini rafts, fishing, pancake making, and sheep herding.

The eleven check points gave a possible total of 110 points. The winners of the competition were a team from Bourne Valley Idmiston who scored a total of 98 points.

The first competition was held in 1930 and was won by the 3rd Salisbury. Next year marks the 90th anniversary of the first running of the competition.
