The scouts had an excellent evening last week practicing some of the basic knots needed for Trail to First Class (and that are generally useful to know). After some patrol time, they finished with a “pet rescue” game, simulating the need to throw a rope and then tie a bowline. Much hilarity – and a little bit or rule stretching – ensued!
Re-introducing formal meeting plans is having a really positive impact.
This was also the first evening when our new female youth patrol joined. With the formal expansion of the scouting program to all youth from February next year, Troop 260 is making an early start – capturing interest and developing skills.
