Armstrong - A serious competition hike for serious Venturers, Leaders and Rovers



About Armstrong

The team that brings you Anything Goes has revived the old Armstrong 500 - a competition hike for Venturers, Rovers & Leaders held annually in September.

If you like hiking, and love a challenge, this is the weekend for you. It will be held from 8-10 September 2017 in Labertouche, West Gippsland and, knowing the local weather, there will be mud.

There will also be about 20 stunts with short, sharp challenges (no more than 20 minutes) focusing on things like construction, first aid, initiative, communication, creativity, mapping and more. These are scattered throughout country that includes some steep hikes. There will be one central base camp, but you will have to take all your gear with you each day.

Teams of 4-7 Venturers, or 4-7 Leaders and/or Rovers, can enter, and you can also use Armstrong as an initiative course.
