After completing their catapults there was a competition to find who could fire their ‘pea’ the furthest down the Scout hall.
After three attempts each, Tom Y came out on top with a distance of 37 ft 6 in. An unnamed scout managed to register a negative throw by somehow firing his pea 1 ft. 6 in. back over his shoulder!
To obtain their badge the Scouts in the preceding weeks had learned knots and lashings, bridged the Silverburn river, built large catapults and constructed stiles over the wall surrounding the hall. All their efforts were tested by Leader Roger (except for standing in front of the large catapults!).
