Dragon Slayer Drawbridge Challenge

Date: 17th Apr 2021 Author: Media Team

Born out of fire the Dragon Slayer Challenge is a series of 23 challenges for each section, matched to the progressive programme of The Scout Association. It is being used to celebrate St George’s Day, our 2nd one in which we have not been able to come together as a District to celebrate due to the on-going pandemic.

It’s been great to see our Leaders practising their skills in readiness for the return to face scouting and taking part in the Dragon Slayer. Here is Q from 1st Stubbington showing off his knots and lashings on his drawbridge. Click the image for the video.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
