Seven teams from Long Buckby, Braunston and 4th Daventry
went head to head at the Mayfield Sports and Social Club for the District part of this event.
The challenge took on a different slant this year, instead of question rounds, the young people had to do various bases – picture puzzle’s, Kims Game, Lego, Floor puzzle and Logo’s were just some of the brain teasers faced by the Teams.
The Scores were very close with seven teams gaining from 148 – 175.5.
The overall winners were Long Buckby (Football Freestylers) and in second place Long Buckby (R Group)
These two teams will now go forward to represent Daventry in the County Challenge to be held in Wellingborough on March 4th.
Congratulations to all teams and good luck Long Buckby in Wellingborough
The District Unihoc tournament proved to be another brilliant event with ten teams involved, it was fast paced and competitive. Thanks to all the leaders and helpers who pulled together to help in one way or another to make this event a success. Special thanks extended to Steve bird for an excellent job refereeing the competition and to Marcus and Tammy for organising the fixtures.

Over 150 other Cubs from all over Daventry and District were invited to a special exclusive screening of the Jungle Book at the Cineworld Cinema at Northampton Sixfields. The event took place as part of the 100 years of Cub Scouting celebrations happening throughout this year. The Jungle Book has a special place in Cub Scout history as it was used by Robert Baden Powell to base his Scouting to younger members and launched Wolf Cubs in 1916. The film was the perfect way to educate the Cubs on its history. The leaders still have Cub Scout names from The Jungle Book such as Akela, Baloo and Bagheera.
