Trangia Beetle Drive

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Scouts work in teams. One member of the team runs a short course with a few minor obstacles and throws a dice to try and get elements of the Trangia stove or food. One roll per turn, if there is nothing left relating to that number ... tough. This works like a traditional beetle drive. The goal being to be the first team to cook an English Breakfast on the Trangia.


Per team: Trangia Base; Trangia upper; Trangia fry pan/lid; Trangia sauce pan; Trangia burner; Trangia pan handle; Meths; Matches; Spoon; Fork; Knife; Plate; Sausage; Bacon; Egg; Hashbrown; Mushroom; Baked beans; Cooking oil; Dice
