We started work on the new round of badges this week. Scouts prepared plans to work on aviation, cooking, local knowledge and pioneering. They are going to be busy!
We talked about ways to contribute to the local community and the scouts are firming up ideas for the autumn.
...and then....well...balloons appeared as if by magic attached with varying degrees of security and open warfare ensued.
We experimented with different rules and playing styles: the "killer hug", "mob attack" and "snatch and grab" did well. Overall we decided the balloons won which was a surprising result! Next time cheaper balloons.
Scouts retired from the affray bearing many scalps in the the form of balloon debris dangling from string on their belts.
Next week building bridges...
