    Bet you can’t…

    Troop Night

    The Troop evening started as normal with flag break and inspection before the patrol leaders ran a quick game of Head and catch with an extra twist. Playing the game normally before the person in the middle shouting all change and the players had to swap there actions. So Head became catch and catch became head.

    The main activity of the evening was Bet you Can’t, there was a number of different activities lined up for the Scouts to attempt.  Every activity completed and checked by a leader scored points for their patrol.  The activities ranged from Scout skills like maps and compasses to balloon modeling.  For a hour of the meeting it was frantic making cups of tea for the leaders, solving puzzles and making some very very strange looking animals out of balloons!  Even Skip joined in to make a balloon Giraffe which sadly popped.  Half way through the evening it was a close run thing between the patrols, with only a few points in it.  Each patrol worked well together but one patrol was the winner so congratulations to Hawks with 270 points I believe.

    After a quick tidy up of the hall there was just enough time for a game of quarter ball, with each patrol having a quarter of the hall and four balls being thrown around that the leaders had to keep track of.  It was then time to gather round the flag for flag down and notices.  The main notice was Winter Camp has been confirmed (well more like a spring camp really) on the 11th -> 13th March at a cost of £25 at copythorne campsite, everyone was given information about the camp.  There are also a couple of subs left to be paid for the term please can you get these in ASAP.

    See you all next week
