Last Thursday at 1st. Malew Scout Hall found ‘Viking’ Troop playing host to Arbory Scouts at the annual ‘Winter national’ sports. The winter themed games competition is usually held during the first meeting after the Christmas holidays but were delayed due to the Scout Hall’s refurbishment.
The Scouts were put into teams of four and the evening commenced with the first themed game called “Avalanche!’. This consisted of each team shouting at the tops of their lungs and the result being measured with a decibel meter.The winning team managed an ear splitting 98 dB’s – this is like standing next to a jack hammer in full flow!
Other events included a ‘sledge race’, slalom skiing, snow shoe race, bob sleigh and ‘snow clearance’.
The last game also known as ‘Leaders revenge’ is where each team has to dispose of a litre of ice cream using tea spoons. Lots of brain freeze. Team ‘Have we lost yet’ where paradoxically the winners of the evening.
I am pleased to report a good time was had by all.
