Lashing of fun!

April 30, 2018

'Lashings' of fun at Cubs tonight working on the first night of the Pioneer Activity badge. I would say the night went without a 'Hitch', but I would be lying...sorry, I'll stop now! We covered the following:

 

1. Found-out some basic facts and safety information relating to using ropes.
2. Learned how to tie a Clove Hitch.
3. Used the Clove Hitch as a basis for a Round Lashing.
4. Used the Round Lashing with Frapping Turns to form a long pole from two smaller ones (three and even four in some cases!).

 

We were very impressed with the Cubs - they tried really hard tonight, and they produced some excellent lashings. This is a basic skill which will serv

 

e them well as they move-up through Scouting.
