K1.5 Hike 2018
On Sunday 7th October 60 scouts and Explorer scouts took to the mountains to complete
the annual K1.5 sponsored hike. The hike is a 14kms hike with a 1km height gain which
proves to be  very challenging especially to some of the newer members.  However the
rewarding sense of achievement is second to non and of course members receive the
all important K1.5 t-shirt.  This would not be possible without the help of the leaders who
manned important check points and the young leaders who encouraged and supported
all the members to help them complete the hike.  Thank you to everyone.
