What is a Wide Game? A wide game is one in which Scouts play over a wide area
What is a District Wide Game? A wide game (see above) that includes all Scout Troops in our district (Yanagin).
As we will NOT be holding a Scout Meeting on Wednesday this week - it is expected that our Scouts patrticipate in this event. It'll be a fun way to meet other Scouts in our area. Please fill in the attached A1 and return to Shaggy
This year's Yanagin District Wide Game is "Monopoly - Eastwood Edition"...
Scouts will be working in Patrols or maximum 6 Scouts to complete a question/answer type activity throughout the local Eastwood Marsfield area. The playing area is bounded approximately by Epping Rd, Blaxland Rd, Balaclava Rd, Lovell & Herring Rds.
Leaders will be positioned at major points along the route. There will be a BBQ for participants at the final location.
Scouts should assemble at 7pm at Eastwood/Marsfield Scout Hall - 72 Agincourt Rd Marsfield. DO NOT BE LATE because we will be moving to Dunbar Park soon after to begin the game.
Scouts will be ready for pickup by 9:30 pm at Jim Walsh Park - Graham Ave Eastwood (park entrance opposite about #16)
Scouts should bring:
- Jacket (if cold)
- Raincoat (if wet)
- Torch (and spare batteries)
- COMPASS (this is essential - there must be at least one per Patrol)
- Bottle of water to drink (they will be doing lots of walking)
- A Pen
- Wear sneakers
- Wear Scout uniform (make sure your woggles are well secured)
If parents would like to stay and help run the evening they are very welcome. PLEASE fill in an A1 form, as well. You will be situated with a Scout Leader.
