20th Sampath Ranawaka Memorial Challenge Trophy​

​Maliyadeva Scout Group decided to organize an exploring competition in 1999 for the name Late Master Sampath Sri Ranawaka who was a past senior scout of our own troop, with the intention of sharing our hiking experience with Scouts of the other part of the country. Initially it was a competition with small number of Scout troops. But gradually we were able to lift up the exploration competition in to a higher level of scouting activities in Sri Lanka with the qualitative as well as the quantitative aspects. Sampath Ranawaka Memorial Challenge Trophy was recognized as a national level scout activity by Sri Lanka Scout Association in 2007 as a tribute to the service of the scout group.
It was indeed the best exploration competition organized by scout groups of Sri Lanka with highest number of participant for last 19 years.  2018 is the year we are achieving the 20th mile stone of the great event with a new change and new hopes with the guidance of Sri Lanka Scout Association.
20th Sampath Ranawaka Memorial Challenge Trophy (SRMCT) – 2018 was held successfully on the 27th of October 2018,at the Thampane Forest Reserves with the participation of more than 1000 Scouts and Girl guides across the Island.
