This week 7th Hemel Scouts held their biggest investiture evening so far, with 18 new Scouts making their promise.
Investiture evenings at Lockers Park always involve a Parents v Scouts challenge “Are You Smarter Than Your Scouting Son?” This year the challenge was spaghetti and marshmallow towers. With 5 patrols and 2 parents’ teams competing, there was a lot of pride at stake (especially with Mums v Dads!). Unfortunately, the Dad’s magnificent tower collapsed 2 minutes before it was due to be measured, and the Mums were disqualified as their ‘free standing’ construction was actually fixed to a large bowl for support!
Two prizes were awarded, one for the tallest and one for the best design. Unfortunately one patrol had to be disqualified as they had eaten all their construction materials!
