Nitro Swing   Nitro Swing Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
8 foot or higher rope swing
can of water
Four 4 foot dowels or sticks
6 tennis ball cans or wooden blocks about that height
Preparation:
Set up 3 cans with 2 dowels resting on top of them to make a 8 foot trip wire about 5 feet from the swing rope. Make another trip wire opposite this one.
Notes:
It only takes 3 scouts to accomplish the task.
Goal: Transport a can of highly volatile nitro across the quicksand.

Rules:
  1. Must use the swing to cross the quicksand.
  2. Swing rope must be acquired by the patrol using only what they have with them.
  3. If the tripwire is knocked down or ground is touched between tripwires, that scout gets off, leaves the rope hanging straight down, and returns to the beginning.
  4. If even one drop of nitro is lost, the patrol must start over.


Optional: To complete the task, all patrol members must cross the quicksand.
