Girlguiding Banff and Buchan held their 2020 Guide Patrol Challenge Competition at the Baden Powell Centre in Turriff recently.
There were 73 guides from across the county that competed for the Challenge Competition with incredible ingenuity, skill, resilience and good humour throughout the day.
Those who took part in the competition faced 11 challenges of design, stealth, food preparation, guiding skills, speed and financial safety all encompassing team work.
There were only a handful of points separating most teams but the outright winners were 1st Macduff Guides who retained the title taking home the centennial oak trophy created by Turriff Men’s Shed.
1st Turriff Guides finished in second place while 1st Stuartfield Guides had their teams finish in third and fourth.
Macduff Guide leader Audrey McAngus hailed her unit for retaining the Patrol Challenge Competition cup.
She brought two teams to compete in the competition .
She told the Advertiser: “Our girls were very chuffed to win this competition for the 2nd year in a row.
“Attending County events like this is always good fun and encourages them to further develop team building skills while making new friends from other units.”
Meanwhile the Banff and Buchan County Outdoors Advisor Elizabeth Massie said: "Very well done to them.
"An amazing day of guiding with superb help from leaders from all over the county."
