I’m sure it will be great achievement when eventually these transform into the real thing of 3metre poles and lashing rope gateways. As I left they were commencing archery and other activities including some final designs of the contingent badge that they will proudly wear on their Warwickshire Jamboree uniform. Good work team and best wishes as you continue to develop the unit, for your adventure to the World Jamboree in Japan.
Today was also our district scout section challenge day hosted at 1st Bulkington and for a change Daz Keach Adc scouts purposefully asked for ‘none scout' activity events which seemed to be ok with the scouts too, no pressure they said!
The challenge was to complete a series of tasks using a variety of the individual teams skill set. Items covered were blind fold Wi archery with team involvement and instruction, space hopper time trials, rescue missions using time and calulating a method , flying carpets (a crash mat exercise) and human buck-a-roo to name but a few.
I have to say a fun time seemed to be had by all, I asked a 1st Bedworth scout what has been the best thing today. He reckoned it was the buck-a-roo thing ‘it’s just crazy’ he said and strangely enough the leader on that challenge thought the same too. The winning team on the day was Chilvers Coton scouts followed by 1st Wolvey & 1st Nuneaton.
Finally I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter and look forward to seeing you at our St Georges day parade and awards where will renew our Scouting promise and celebrate our success on Sunday 27th April.
