29 Scouts from 1st 3rd 4th and 17th
Chose the perfect day to get in to the minibus and shoot of to Thriftwood Camp site and Activity Centre for a day of rafting.
They built their own rafts with the help of a diagram and tuition from the leaders Michael , Chris, Carl , Russel ,Fred, Caroline. Dominic and a parent helper Donald
We emphasised the importance of doing the square lashing right and tight and getting the spars in the right place, a few succeeded and paddled up and down the lake while the rest floundered in the water because their rafts fell apart.
Never the less a good time was had by all, most of them got very wet in the lovely warm!!!! muddy September water.
They all agreed that it was a good day and would do it again and may not get SO wet next time with the knowledge they had gained.
