Pioneering competition - trestle bridges

This newspaper clipping from the 4th of May 1973 shows single lock trestle bridges built by Scout troops in Benoni, at a competition camp at Arrowe Park.

From the accompanying article:

Benoni District Scouts attended a camp competition last weekend at Arrowe Park, organised by fourth Benoni Rover Crew.

Highlight of Sunday morning was a pioneering project which entailed building and erecting a suspension bridge by each troop. Third Benoni was judged builder of the best bridge.

Acting District Commissioner Mr Noel Moor complimented the Rovers on a very "successful and enjoyable camp
