District Cheshire Hike Practice 2
1st February 2020 @ 8:30 am - 2nd February 2020 @ 4:00 pm
This is the second practice open to all Scouts & Explorers in the District intending to enter the Cheshire Hike. It’s a great opportunity to practice for Cheshire Hike and Participation can contribute to a number of badges. Tents and Sleeping bags will be transported to the finish so participants can get used to walking a fair distance and practice navigating. Please note there is a flat £25 fee to attend practice 2, 3 & 4 whether you attend all of them or just one of them. If you book onto all three at the same time a £50 discount will be applied to the basket. If you book on to just one weekend and then subsequently decide to come to another weekend hike the website will recognise this and not charge you for the other two weekends.
