Bang the Can Relay Game
This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
4 metal garbage cans, or coffee cans, or other items that can be hit and make noise.
2 dowels or sticks about 1 foot long for batons.
Set the 4 cans out in a large square raceway.
Divide in 2 teams or have patrols compete.
One team has a starting line halfway between 2 cans. The other team's starting line is halfway between the 2 opposite cans.
One team runs clockwise, the other counter-clockwise around the course.
One scout from each team starts with their baton in hand. He runs around the square and must hit each can with his baton. If he fails to hit a can hard enough for the judge to hear, he must repeat his lap.
When the scout finishes his lap, he hands off the baton to the next scout.
The scouts waiting in line must stay out of the way of running scouts.
