    Final First Aid

    Filed under: Troop Nights;

    Last weeks Scout meeting was the last session towards the first aid badge.  The evening started as normal with Flag break from Falcons, followed by a quick and quiet game of wink murder at least most was quiet apart from the acting.  It was followed by an even quicker game of capture the keys, the aim of the game is to capture the keys from beneath the blindfolded Scout that is sat on the chair.

    It was then on with the first aid activities of the evening, after a recap on previous first aid that had been covered it was on with the some small areas that we had not had time to cover in other evenings.  This was mainly looking at the signs and symptoms of poisoning and what you could do about it.  The rest of the evening was for the scouts to use the information that they had learned over the previous troop nights to create a presentation on a specific health problem.  They should identify the symptoms of the problem and understand how to treat it.  All the patrols did fantastic presentations on their topics and two of the patrols did some fine acting.

    With the evening running out of time there was just enough time to present one of our Scouts with the highest honor that a scout can achieve the Gold Chief Scouts Award.  That is the second award in as many months.

    Please remember next week is a night hike starting at Rownhams Woods
