Scouts cooking dinner floating on a raft in the local pond

Monday, March 29, 2010
The challenge from the scout leaders:
Build a raft that can carry a patrol (6 people).
Organize a suitable heat source (gas / fire) for cooking
Organize everything need to cook (pots / pans / meat / ice cream)
Once you launched you cannot come back on shore to get extra stuff

Enjoy the challenge of cooking your dinner while floating on a raft on a local farmers pond!!
Pics below - it took three weeks but they got there!!

PS - this would have to be a very good way of building and/or teaching things like teamwork/leadership/knots and lashing (also often referred to as Pioneering) / budgeting / planning and execution of plans made. So much better then being in the Den and way better then the N........ Program!! Shhhhh did I say this? *I grins*
