On Sunday morning Scouts, Explorers and parents were at the TT grandstand helping with the preparations for this years TT races by packing the Marshals ‘goody bags’.
A production line was set up and the ‘packers’, after picking up a plastic bag, walked the length of the table placing each different item in the bag before handing it to the ‘box filler’ at the end. When the box was full a Scout would then load it into the associations van. In this way just over a 1,000 bags were filled, boxed and loaded in 1 hour 28 minutes.
A brilliant and worthwhile job done by everyone which was greatly appreciated by the TT Association. Without the Scouts help it takes them about a week to do the same job along with all the other things they have to do.
To keep keep the insanity at bay it was worked out that by the time the Scouts had packed all the bags they had walked the same distance as the TT start line to Quarter Bridge.
The Scouts then had a picture taken on the winners podium.
On finishing their work the Scouts were all given a goody bag of their own with TT Beeny hat and insuated mug along with other items.
