Two West Sussex SASU Managers have recently returned from Northern Ireland. Stephen and Amanda Bell were invited to come to Northern Ireland as guests, and run a seminar and workshop, on Box Karting.
The success of 12th Bangor, Co Down, at the 2016 and 2017 Supreme, has fired the interest of many leaders in Northern Ireland.
The seminar covered all aspects of box karting, from its history and the origins of the Supreme, though safety and then, on to how you run a championship. Later in the day, the Irish leaders, under supervision, got to construct two box karts, that had been shipped out in kit form, a few days previously.
Later, in the day, Stephen & Amanda, were taken to the Northern Ireland Scout Centre at Crawfordsburn Country Park. This, in short, is a stunning place for young people, with meticulous attention to detail, in every way.
County Down already have a venue for a permanent raceway, and the following day Stephen and Amanda were taken there to assess the possibilities. All looked very good, and it is hoped another sister of the Supreme, will take place here later in the year.
Scouting giving opportunities for Adults as well as young people.

Following from our announcement earlier in the year that some of our Adult Leaders had been awarded St George’s Day Awards, we hosted an Afternoon Tea at the Copthorne Hotel to recognise their achievements. Each recipient was presented with their award by West Sussex County Commissioner Robert Sawyer and Chief Constable Giles York of Sussex Police who has become a close friend of Scouting in Sussex in recent years.
Congratulations to all those who received awards!
The Supreme Box Kart Championship is a totally open event and we would be delighted to hear from any Cub Pack from any District, County or Country. ALL Cub Scouts who race on the day will go home with a medal and a free colour programme.
For construction guidelines go to the Supreme Box Kart Rules and Regulations page.
