Judges’ comments: A warm weekend on a large site lent itself to a very close competition. The site allowed for cooking on altar fires which proved challenging to some Patrols. The standards were high especially in regard to the Saturday evening meal. Judged on content and presentation by a visiting Guest, but food storage and site tidiness were the main issues for losing points.
