The Team Spirit Title is Defended

In March, members of 4th Kingswood Rangers returned to defend their team spirit title at this year’s Rickard Shield.    A 12 mile night hike across Camerton, saw the team set off at 8:30pm and hike using only a map & compass around 5 checkpoints. Due to the later set off time – they were declared a competent, experienced team, so set off without a tracker. The last team to leave base, and they didn’t let their spirits dampen one bit. With their UV paint and finger lights on they had a determination about them – that would see them complete the 12 miles with the upmost determination – after all they had a title to defend! Arriving back at base at 3am – a tired but still smiling team had completed the 2019 Rickard Shield – it was off to bed for a restless few hours to see if they had done enough to defend their Team Spirit title. At 9am the presentations began and 4th Kingswood Rangers officially defended their title – now can they make it a hat trick next year?? (and if they do – we might need to take out shares at the engravers haha!)
