4 October 2012: Knots Evening

Tonight’s special guest was Lonnie, our Scouts expert on Knotting and all things rope-y.

All of us, leaders included got to try our hands at a selection of different knot types, all of which looked super easy in the hands of an expert, but took us a while to get the hang of.

Our chairs doubled as boats, trees, and donkeys as we worked our way through some very useful reef knots, half hitches, clove hitches and slip knots.

All knots were very successful and all the cubs enjoyed having an interesting guest for the night.
