Chinese sticks and sixes

The meetings on 21st and 22nd of January were dedicated to working together and forming new sixes. We brought in the old bamboo canes and rubber bands, an exercise I learnt in 22nd Oxford Sea Scouts.
The cubs were instructed to make a bridge, after their own fashion, that could take the weight of our pack's ring folder. The bridge should also be high enough for the folder to pass underneath. They were also given the clue "Triangles are good".
The Cubs worked relentlessly and were very concentrated on their task. With just a little bit of coaching all the bridges were able to carry the folder and the sixes proudly presented their work and told the others about the process.
