bullet Compass for each group

Two Troop Leaders or qualified Scouts lay out a compass course similar to the one shown on page 260, Handbook for Boys. Patrol Leaders divide members into groups of two or more Scouts and provide each group with a compass. The Patrol whose groups find their way around the course in the shortest time is the winner,

Tips

Use a stake for a starting point and natural objects such as a tree, bush, rock or small stone for other objectives.

For this and similar contests, before a Patrol starts let every member sit down and calculate the number of steps he must take for every course. This can be done indoors in the preceding Troop Meeting. Instruct Scouts who do not know the length of their natural steps to ascertain them before the hike Why not lay out a 200 foot stretch just outside the Troop meeting door?
