Dave, at our last Camp-O-Ree (the 7th consecutive one organized and run
completely by the OA Lodge here) we use a different version of the pn=ancake
The equipment and supplies was provided by the Camp-O-Ree, but the Patrols
had to do the following:
1) light the (Colman) stove.
2) heat the pan (adding any needed grease)
3) mix pancake batter (while heating pan, hopefully)
4) cook pancake on side one
5) flip pancake
(over a rope strung 6' high above the cooking area)
(using only the pan, no egg turner, no hands)
6) cook 2nd side of pancake
7) eat pancake (as a Patrol)
The reason for the rope as a line to flip over was to add a bit of fun to
the event. The reason for the flip w/ no hands or turner was to ensure the
Patrol cooked the pancake well enough on the first side that it wasn't still
soupy. And the reason for the whole patrol eating it was to ensure that the
cook(s) didn't undercook it.
In our case, it was a timed event, and quality had little to do with it.
The only real excitement for the adults supervising the event came when one
Patrol missed the pan on the flip and the pancake ended up on the ground. It
was decided that they could do it over rather than eat the pancake-ala-dirt.
If you're interested in some of the events and associated details) our guys
have used over the last few years I think we've got them on disc somewhere.
If I can get a hold of them, I'll post them to you and/or others if they
(such things as "Electric wire", water relay (several different ones),
tripod (isotope) carry, Kim's game, blind man tent pitch, tug-o-war, match
splitting, compass relay, Scout trivia, etc...)
