Pioneering Pole
Oil Drums
etc etc


The aim is to see how far the team can travel using just the equipment provided. The can either race against the clock or if you have more than one team you can see how crosses the swamp first

Optional 'rules' to make the task more challenging can include
If anyone in the team touches the 'swamp' then they drown and can no longer take park
If anyone in the team touches the 'swamp' then the team have to go back to the bank and start again
