Light a match from a lit candle from 3-4m away using wooden staves


staves, rope, matches, candles


The team have to lash together several staves, attach an unlit match to the end, light a candle and then try to light the match from the candle (far easier than having to put a new match on ever few seconds because its blown out!). First team whos matches lights up wins!
