Bridport guides won the state shield at the Patrol Challenge Weekend at River’s Edge, near Huonville, in Southern Tasmania.
Esk District leader Julie Miller said that the patrol, held at the end of March, attracted eight Bridport guides, from two patrols, and 80 from around the state
“The criteria for the competition is participation of the whole patrol in activities, encouragement by the patrol and co-operation of the patrol.,” Ms Miller said.
“While camping, the guides, aged from 10-17, are expected to erect their own tents, cook their own food, care for their own gear and equipment and work in their patrol to do activities.
“The girls are at various stages with their cooking _ some meals were quite simple and others more complicated, but the whole idea is to have fun doing it.”
Further information about guiding at Bridport is available from guide leader Lyn Commane 6365 1631 or 0409 561 642.
