Bridge 1

Saturday June 10th

The Scouts were once again invited to build a bridge at St Mary's Hare Park School.

The Scouts really got into the spirit of the theme attempting to dress up like Caribbean pirates. They weren't very scary pirates as can be seen.

As you can see from the picture left, we had to get the bridge safety inspected by experts before letting anyone have a go.

 SCOUT TEAM BUILDING

The Scouts were set a task. They were given a complete set of 1:50,000 OS maps and told to put them together to make all of Wales and the border with England appear on the hall floor. Each map is numbered and they were given a master diagram showing which numbers were where. It's just like doing a puzzle. The Scouts can't do puzzles!


 LEADER TRAINING

Two of our leaders spent the weekend in Wales on a Mountain Leader training weekend. The picture on the right shows our tent in the middle of nowhere!

We had a little spare time so flew the group kite. Sunday the sun rose without a cloud in the sky and we were woken by wild horses eating grass near our tent at 6am.
