The Annual District Raft Race 2009
On 27th September 2009, the Troop once again braved the chilly waters of Chelmsford to take part in the Annual event that they have so long been patrons of. This year, they had three rafts, the blue barrels from the previous year and two new aditions; a red polystyrene 'Ferrari' syle raft and a bath-paddle steamer. The Red raft flew across the water in all its heats, winning fasted raft and the paddle steamer won the most original, despite it sinking. A great time was had by leaders, parents and most of all the Scouts as they had such a good time building and testing their rafts!

Group Night Hike, June 2009
Over the 27th and 28th June 2009, members from all three sections of the 26th Chelmsford took part in a Night Hike around Maldon with the Beavers and the Cubs and Scouts doing just over 8 miles. A great time was had by all and by the time everyone got back, we were all worn out. Pictures from the event will be up on the site soon!

The Annual District Raft Race 2008
On 21st September 2008, we met early in Chelmsford for a morning of fierce competetion and water heroics. The Scouts came away with all three awards;

-  Titanic Award
This was the first time any Troop has won all three awards in the 100 years of Scouting that Chelmsford has seen!
Well done guys!
