Thank you to everyone that has been trying to help me and the rest of the
Here is the list so far..Since time is ticking, resources are limited..I need
3 more games..The following are the events so far:
1. Pumpkin carving..They will carry their carved Princess with them through
out the night.
2. Haunted House..The explorer post with the camp is doing this one..YEAAAA..
3. Duck and rain gutters....Large spray bottles and yellow ducks..The object
is spray the duck down to the end of the gutter. There will be six
gutters,spray bottles, and ducks..Fastest patrol wins.
4.Coffin carry..One scout sits in the coffin and holds his princess and the
rest carry it down the lane and back...timed..
5.Skeleton head..Using 3 rings to get over the skeleton head..Most rings from
each patrol wins...(like horse shoes)
6.Small pumkins on a plastic spoon running through an orange cone maze..
7.Deadman hang..gunny sacks,rope,and stuffing the sacks, tie it, and then
throw it over the tree and hang it.. fastest wins.
8. Walk the Plank..a set of skis with enough places for 6 scouts. They will
be walking down the lane and back again.. Their feet will be secure on the
ski.. It takes team work to be able to walk. Timed also..
9.Mummy wrap,, Use toilet paper and wrap one member of the patrol up
13. Flying Jack-O...One member of the patrol throws the princess down the
lane. The farest one wins...It will be in a rope off area.. Several lanes
will be going at once.
This is where the spook-o-ree ends..This event from start to finish wil be in
2 1/2 hours max..The scouts will be woken up at 12:30 AM at night..AT 3 in
the morning the events shut down...Everyone back to bed..
At 8:30 sharp everyone will meet at flag pole..opening ceremonies, fun run,
treasure hunt. The treasure hunt will be finding the names that match
questions on the list.
They will ask the scouts to write in the name of the Eagle scout that matches
the questions..Then we assemble again talk about the hunt, run, give out
ribbons, and have a closing ceremony. Everyone goes home by 11 am..
I hope this gives you an idea how spook-o-ree is running. If anyone has good
names for these events or has any more ideas please write me.
Thanks again for all your support.
