BACK TO BASICS COMPETITION EVENTS

It is recommended that each Patrol have at least one Scout handbook and a pen and paper with them during competition.

FIREBUILDING--Using Flint and Steel to ignite char-cloth and building a fire to boil water.  (All materials provided.)

ORIENTEERING--Compass course over uneven terrain to test Scouts' ability to measure distance and take compass headings. (Also, does Patrol know other methods to find direction without a compass?)

FIRST AID--Knowing what to do when discovering an unconscious accident victim with a broken leg.  (Removing, transporting victim may be required--see bowline, stretchers and carrys.)

CALCULATING DISTANCE--Determining the distance across a ravine without crossing and estimating the height of an object. (Check your Scout handbook.)

FLAG RAISING--Using knots and lashing skills to join 3 poles and raise a flag.  (Knowledge of lashing, clove hitches and taut-line hitches needed for maximum points.)

TEAM SKILLS--A series of Patrol activities requiring teamwork and cooperation to accomplish a task.

COOKING--Saturday evening meal will be a competition event. (Scouts must prepare a balanced meal using either open fire, camp stoves or charcoal.  Judges will not sample food. Points awarded for creativity, use of utensils, ease of preparation and clean-up.)

The Number 1 Troop flag (held by Troop 75 since 2009) will be presented at Saturday night's campfire to the top Troop in the competition
