Escape from the Don

Escape from the Don
Friday 19th - Sat 20th August
 
Open to Explorers and Network.  Open to all of NE Region.
This is a XL wide game that involves hiking overnight without getting caught.  Teams of 4-7 will evade capture by choosing a good route and keeping their eyes open.  Catchers (leaders) will be able to drive / walk / run / cycle to find them and take a life (teams have 10 lives).  The event is similar to http://ormskirkscouts.org.uk/moonlight/
Currently the plan is to finish at 6am in Aboyne scout hut.  Start would be approx. 9pm at a location TBC.  Straight line distance would be approx. 10-12 miles.
 
I propose to take preliminary applications from units up to end of May.  Units would have to submit health forms and payment by the end of June.
 
Obviously, to make this as much fun as possible, we need lots of teams and lots of leaders...
