Congratulations go to Ben Wybrow from Beecroft for chalking up his 3rd Scout Hike gold award. Ben’s first Scout Hike was in 2013, as a non competitive entrant. The following year he joined up with a Brush Park patrol and they came 12th. In 2015, skilfully led by Lachlan Foote, he was a member of a Beecroft patrol that also achieved a 12th position. Using the skills gained over the previous years and now PL, Ben was determined to win gold in 2016. Ben used his planning and leadership skills with patrol members Darcy Barlow, Brent Williamson, Angus Piper, Ted Smith and Marlon Morrish along with his determination to achieve gold with 3rd place this year. Ben’s advices to achieve gold is be enthusiastic in all activities, be polite to all Leaders and patrol members, work as a patrol and complete at least 24 bases. Well done Ben!
