August 14-18thPhoenix 2013
Our Team finally went to the Phoenix which was in Castle Saunderson this year. We had plenty of adventures. We lost our box of food, we had plenty of rain, we miss-placed our table for the trade fair, we needed another ball of sizal and our pre-log book and menu was not marked for some reason.. Congratulations to Kilmacud scouts at the Phoenix challenge who got Silver Standard.
