Rafting at Thrifwood, a great day o/in the water

27th September 2015

Rafting at Thrifwood, a great day o/in the water

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.
