The Dragnet Challenge is to complete a 35 mile trek on foot in the wilds of the Lake District. Teams of four leave the “top secret” drop off point on the Friday night and navigate back to the defined base camp, to arrive on the Sunday morning. On the way you must evade the teams of experienced searchers who can take “lives”. Each life lost will reduce your team’s chance of winning the competition as the winners will be the team to arrive at the Base Camp check in point nearest to 11:00, with the least number of lives lost.
Dragnet is held at a top secret destination within the Cumbrian Lake District
Teams of FOUR who are bonafide members of the Scout or Guide movement, who are OVER 14, and UNDER 25 years of age on 1st July 2016. (cost is £80 per team of 4)
Explorer Scout leaders of Cumbria
IMPORTANT - READ BEFORE ENTERING!
Dragnet is a serious event. You MUST be prepared to walk a distance of up to 35 miles in open country, through the night and possibly in poor weather. It is vital that you are well prepared and have the right equipment.
You must check in at Dragnet Base NO LATER THAN 21:00 on the Friday night. Please arrange transport to make sure you are there on time. It is not a good idea to rely on public transport, as you are unlikely to be able to get a train to anywhere near Dragnet Base. ocation of base is kept secret until the closing date but details will be sent out on your confirmation letter. If you get your entry in on time you will find out sooner where you are coming to. The base is also the finish point for the competition. This is where teams should be picked up from on Sunday by 14:00.
