Unfortunately? I remember once drowning our Patrol Leader in a simulated 50 foot
diameter pond because we couldn't throw our ropes far enough to reach him.
Imagine how silly we felt when the event leader picked up one end of the rope
and walked around to the other side of the circle (simulated pond) until the
Patrol Leader could grab it.I have never forgotten the lesson learned from that
event. I think it's fortunate that your scout where kill in a SAFE PLACE where
they learned from their mistake.
Excellent post with great ideas, I hope to get someone in our District to read
it. Thanks Ed.
