Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


Each six constructs an A-frame and pairs up with another six to transport a bucket of water across the gap to fill a container.


Pioneering Poles x24 (2 metres long),
Rope (plenty of it),
Buckets x2,
Large container x2


A leader/young leader to go with each six,

Using square lashing tie six poles together to create an A-Frame,

Once all structures are completed station two A-Frames opposite the other two,

They must then attach rope to pull a bucket of water across the gap,

The two sixes on the right must race the two sixes on the left to fill another contained with water.
