The Explorer Scouts attended the national Sedan Chair Rally for the first time this year. We decided on a Mario Kart theme for the chair and for a few weeks before the event constructed our chair.

We headed to Tolmers Campsite on a rather damp weekend for the rally. Saturday was full of a wide range of activities ioncluding shorrting, archery and football with a Disco filling the evening.

Sunday was the day of the Sedan Chair race. Lots of teams entered the event with a wide range of chair designs from the Hogwarts Express to a cereal box. The course was massive – including a water section across the lake.

We came 23rd out of 32 teams – not bad for a first attempt.
