Scouts - Falcon Patrol 3 Pole challenge

posted 22 Feb 2014, 04:53 by Website Admin

Photos from the 3 pole challenge that the Falcon patrol completed on a very wet day last week. The challenge consisted of two parts: one to build a flagpole using three poles and the second was to build a catapult also using tree poles. The patrol completed the challenge successfully even in the rain and wind and managed to cook some lunch outdoors on the trangia stoves showing that the weather was not an issue for this patrol!
