Sports Day

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ

Description

A sports day is a good opportunity to bring together all BB sections along with parents and relatives. Build the event as a "family fun day" and encourage parents to come along support and bring a picnic. Parents can then be drawn in to help. This is an ideal activity for any size Company, Battalion or Small District. This also has links to some activities but not all the links have been added. See also Discoverer K1
