After the mega clear-out during the summer it was time to take a first look at the tents we had. Most of the small 2-3 person tents were inadequate for the needs of the Scouts so the committee generously approved the buying of new. After some months of searching a suitable replacement (Vango Banshee 300) was identified which will last for many years.
The first of three new hike tents was put through it’s paces at the Scouts survival camp by the Scout Leader. Being small and light in weight it would be ideal for either hiking or cycling with. Another advantage is pitching outer first. Ideal for when it is raining. Finally metal poles ensure no breakages in cold weather.
