crocodile crossing

Team members hold the ropes as one Trail Life boy crosses the “crocodile pit”.

At last Monday’s Trail Life meeting troup members got to experience a “Crocodile Crossing”. First the boys built an A-frame using all the lashings and knots they’ve learned over the past 3 meetings. It was important for the A-frame to be very strong because it was then used to cross an imaginary crocodile pit! Ropes were attached to the A-frame and while one team member balanced on it the others had to use the ropes to keep him balanced and help him move across the pit.

Not only was this a great chance to test their lashing and knots skills, working together to get across was an important team building exercise.
