Photos - Gordon Shield, August 2015
9th/16th Cape Town competed in the 100th Gordon Shield competition. Even though the competition is old, it is new for our scouts who did very well for their first attempt. Activities included building a campsite, cooking, air rifle shooting, rescuing people from the dam, and building a telescope.

We started with a game of One-Up-One-Down, followed by some backwoods cooking. The scouts cooked vegetables and mince in a foil pack, as well as bread on a stick. Well done to Eagles for having the best meal.

9th/16th Cape Town competed in the junior scout competition called Upton Shield. The competition was held on Table Mountain, and 55 teams competed from all over the Western Cape. We are very proud that our team, lead by Aiden Murphy, came 10th overall. A fantastic result, especially given the team had not experienced such a competition before. Well done team!
