Apex powers up as pylon powers down
The Apex Extreme is powering up through Saturday afternoon with dozens of teams competing in some of the most exciting activities at any scout competition.
Strong winds have this morning brought down the site's electricity supply, also taking out the water pump. While teams are out competing the Apex organisers are busy drafting in emergency power to make sure event centre is back up and running this afternoon.
With blustery conditions forecast for throughout the day it's going to be one of our most challenging events ever, but the teams look to be more than ready to take it on!
