Rugby Scouts – Chip Shop Challenge

Posted on:

3.5 miles of distance to cover, and 5 of the best chip shops Rugby has to offer…
There were many chips, bizarre choices of condiments.. and a fair few bemused chip shop owners i reckon!


And here are the results:

  • In last place, with 133 points – Mr Chips
  • In fourth, with 137.5 points – Chip Stop
  • In third, with 152.5 points – Hillmorton Fish Salooon
  • In second, our usual favourite, with 164.5 points – Brownsover Fish Bar
  • But the winner, with a massive 186 points – Extra Fish Bar!!!

Very close.. just  not much in it and the chips were all very good 🙂 Congratulations go to the Extra Fish Bar!

And there you have it. It was a tough job finding the best chip shop in Rugby, but someone had to do it!

Messing about on the water…

Posted on:

Taking full advantage of the warm summer we’ve had this year, the Scouts managed to get a late September mess around at Northamptonshire Watersports Centre!

Very little wind made the sailing challenging, but all the Scouts got stuck into building some pretty impressive rafts 🙂

Enjoy the photos…
