Congratulations to the 3rd and 7th De La Salle Scout Troops who along with the 17th St.Pauls and 31st Faithlegg achieved Gold Standards at the Phoenix Challenge 2011. The event took place from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st August last. Overall St.Pauls had another brilliant win while the 3rd finished sixth, the 7th (pictured above) were eighth and Faithlegg were 11th out of the 53 teams. Amazingly it’s the 16th national competition win for St.Pauls who this year also picked up the Campcraft, Special Projects/Log and Cooking trophies. The 3rd DLS (pictured below with the team from St. Pauls) also picked up the Richard Murphy Health & Safety Award. Well done to all in what was an excellent event and a superb result for the Waterford Scout County. Its been a hectic few weeks and every one of the Waterford scouts and leaders have earned a well deserved rest!
