Scouts Orienteering in Wendover Woods

On a chilly March Saturday we headed over to Wendover Woods for the day. We invested our two newest members and then set off on the orienteering course. Wendover Woods has a permanent orienteering course in place which is run by the Forestry Commission. The scouts split into two patrols for the day and split the map in half so they could cover as much as possible. It was cold and muddy but they kept moving and warm. There were a couple of hiccups where the paths had been closed off while they are building new tracks but the patrols negotiated these and managed a tally of 11 out of the 17 markers during the day which was fantastic and required some skilled navigation.
