Scouts from across the North West converged on Tamworth to take part in a wide game that spanned from the Oxley Lookout down to Bicentennial Park.

NSW Scouts North West commissioner Brett Grimmond said the event attracted scouts from as far as Quirindi, Tenterfield, Moree and everywhere in between.

“We started at the lookout for our annual parade and welcoming, then we broke up to groups and ran down to the marsupial park, where the kids identified different animals,” Mr Grimmonds said.

“Then we went through the botanical gardens, and down on to Anzac Park, where we had a radio fox hunt. One group hid a beacon, and another lot tracked it down with a locator.”

After some craft activities, the group trekked to Bicentennial Park to enjoy the Tamworth Regional Playground and hold a barbecue.

“Then we had our annual general report at Forum 6,” Mr Grimmond said.

“We had a PowerPoint playing on the cinema screen and everyone had a choc-top in their hand, it was really awesome.”
