Are your Scouts & Guides ready for another 2 days of action packed fun at Mafeking Rover Park?

At Top Gear Scout 2018 your Scouts will compete against other Patrols over the weekend in a competition camp like none other!

For those aged 12 and up they even have the opportunity to learn how to drive a car in our very own Junior Development Program (JDP).

There will be lots of activities to keep them busy all weekend and we guarantee they’ll leave wanting more!

This is also Fully Catered Weekend! There is no need for your Scouts to miss out on any of the action by needing to return to camp to cook!!

Top Gear Scout 2018 is only open to all Registered Scouts & Guides and is run by 1st Wantirna Scout Group.

Ice Blocking - Thu 1 March

posted 5 Feb 2018, 03:06 by Andrew Yeaman   [ updated 6 Mar 2018, 03:02 ]

For our program on Thursday 1st March we will be ice blocking at the basin opposite Heatherdale Reserve.

This is a great night of fun where you get to slide down a hill on an ice block! The only equipment needed is a block of ice, thick clothing and a bike helmet. An old towel (do not bring a good towel as it is likely to get quite stained), a hessian sack or even an old piece of carpet is recommended to sit on. The ice block needs to be big enough so that you can sit on it and thick enough that it does not break in half too easily. 

To make the ice block you need a plastic container. The size of the ice block you require will depend on the size of your Scout. A 4 litre ice cream container will make a small one. You can use a 15 litre activity box to make a larger block.  Fill with at least 10 cm of water and freeze for at least 2-3 days. You can add some reinforcing to the ice block by freezing something like an onion bag within the block (do not use metal!). You can also make a handle for your ice block by freezing a piece of rope into the block.

It is likely that you will become wet and dirty, so don't wear your best shorts/pants and runners! Don't forget your helmet.

So it is time to start making those ice blocks in order to be ready for the night. So get freezing!

We will start the night at the hall for parade and then head over to the basin for some ice blocking fun.

Things you need to know:
  • Start at 7pm at the Scout hall
  • Wear your uniform please (but wear old pants)
  • Bring your ice block/s
  • Bring a helmet - no helmet, no ice blocking!
  • You may want to bring a change of clothes - you can change at the basin
  • Pick up at 9pm at the hall as usual.
