The Annual Sports Meeting, is a competition for Beaver Scouts, Cubs Scouts, Scouts, and Explorer Scouts, with each section competing for a trophy; the "Beaver Sports Trophy", the "Clouston Cup" for Cubs, the "Andrew Wilson Memorial Trophy" for Scouts, and the "Explorer Scout Sports Shield". Additionally the "Millar Shield" is presented to the Group with the highest total score of Beaver, Cub and Scout events only.
From 2012, the Explorer Scout competition changed to an individual Heptathlon event featuring seven single events. No team events i.e. tug-of-war, relay events etc. will be held. All Explorer Scout participants will enter all the events to accumulate points. The top three point earners at the end of the heptathlon will win a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal (in chocolate). Average scores were also calculated to determine the winning Unit Trophy. Heats will be run when there are more than six participants.
The Annual Sports Meeting is held at the Pitreavie Sports Stadium, starting at 11:00. with field events for the Cub, Scout and Explorer sections. The Beaver Sport events start at 12:00 p.m. finishing at 13:00 with the presentation of the Beaver Trophy. After a short break for lunch, Cub, Scout and Explorer Scout events re-commence at 13:30 finishing with the trophy presentation.
The convenor and committee will organise the competition under the auspices of Rosyth District Scout Council, and will require the assistance of other co-opted persons, as required. Most of that assistance will be on the day of the competition, to help with marshalling, and all the activities involved in running a sucessful sports event.
If you can offer help, please contact the sports committee or Barrie Wilson, the District Commissioner. Running the sports events require more assistance than that of the other events in the Scouting calander. Although the "Inch" District Active Support Unit provide much of the assistance on the day, some additional help will be required.

There are no restrictions on the number of events which a Cub, Scout or Explorer Scout may enter. However, the programme will be run briskly, and no delays will be allowed to permit a competitor to rest between events. It is the responsibility of competitors to be in the marshalling area in time for each event. Leaders are asked to ensure that competitors are properly prepared in plenty time.
Age limits - Ages are calculated on the day of the Sports. Under 12 means any member who has not reached his or her 12th birthday on the day of the Sports, etc. Open events are open to any member of the section. Members who are not invested may compete for their sections. Leaders are reminded that age ranges are:-
Beavers 6 - 8;   Cubs 8 - 10½;     Scouts 10½ - 14;     Explorer Scouts 14 - 18.
Members may only enter events for the section to which they belong. A Cub may not enter Scout events, and similarly a Scout may not enter Explorer events. If a Cub has gone up to the Troop before the Sports he or she cannot be entered for Cub events, and similarly a Scout who has moved up to the Explorer Scouts may not enter Scout events.
The age of competitors may be checked after an event. Any entrant found to be too old will be disqualified.
The beaten semi-finalists in the tug-of-war will both gain 1 point.
In the event of a dead heat for first place, both competitors / teams will gain 3 points and the third place 1 point. If there is a dead heat for second place, both competitors / teams will gain 2 points and no third place will be awarded.
Footwear. Spikes may be worn for all track events, and for the long jump, high jump and cricket-ball, but for no other events. Heavy boots must not be worn in the tug-of-war.
In the event of bad weather, the Sports Committee and the Groundsman will decide whether the Sports should be cancelled or abandoned.
Any breach of the rules will result in points being lost in the event concerned and placings adjusted accordingly.
The Group Trophy will be won by the Group gaining most points from Beaver, Cub and Scout events. In the case of the 48th Fife, Donibristle Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, will count as one Group. St Bridgets Beavers and Cubs with St Davids Scouts will compete as another Group.
