Winners of the 2011 Blacks of Greenock National Camping Competition 

A patrol of 6 Scouts from the 9th Airdrie Scout Group has won the 2011 Blacks of Greenock National Scout Camping Competition. The patrol qualified for the final after success in the Calder District and zonal qualifiers.

The competition final was held over two days on the weekend of 10th/11th September at Meggernie Scout Camp in Glen Lyon, Perthshire. The boys and girls of the 9th Airdrie showed a total commitment to teamwork and persevering against dreadful weather conditions, to display Scout camping skills and knowledge at their very best.

District Commissioner Bill Craig congratulated the Group on their success in the most prestigious competition on the Scottish Scouting calendar and added that the patrol was 'a credit to their Group and to Calder District.'

Regional Commissioner Stuart Imrie said 'I am delighted that a Patrol from Clyde Region has won the competition and send them my congratulations on their success.'
