It was a mix of sunshine and showers for 10 of our Bronze expedition teams exploring the Dumfries & Galloway area at the end of June. Luckily there were less midges aroundand the rain stayed away for most of Sunday with the sun shining through all the way to the finish - great! All teams did exceptionally well with a few tricky navigation points and making sure to avoid some rivers that were rising steadily with all the rainfall and a large catchment area in the surrounding hills. Everyone was rewarded with a slice of Mrs Ward's birthday cake and did some very tuneful singing in return. It's on to Silver next...with hopefully a little less rain!
