Wide Game simulating a Food Aid Drop under Enemy Fire


Bean bags will be used as the food bags. One Bag for each scout. A Large Rectangular Area. ribbons, 3 for each scout.


Divide the group into two equal teams.

Outdoors mark out a large rectangular area.

One end of the area is home base, the other end is the outpost , and in between is enemy territory.

The job of the airlift team is to carry supplies (bean bags) from home base to the outpost without getting 'shot down' (tagged three times by collecting ribbons tucked into waistband) by the enemy team.

The airlift team may carry one bean bag each or may let one or two Cubs carry all the bean bags in a box while the others protect them as they race from home base to the outpost.

Cubs who are tagged three times while carrying beanbags are out, and the enemy gets their beanbags. The team that has the most beanbags at end of game wins.
