May 20th to 22nd County Cup

One team from 62nd scouts were on this years county cup. There were 7 teams in total, us, 2 from Mt. Merrion, Kilternan, Ballaly, Rathfarnham and Ballinteer. There was disgusting rain on Saturday afternoon which put a "dampner" on things but we were still the first team to get the test meal done. We came 4th overall and we won the campfire sketch which is fantastic. We therefore received the campfire blanket which we have to look after for the year and put a badge on it.
