John Henry Relay Game
mallet and 4 tent pegs for each team
Define starting line where each patrol lines up to start.
About 30 feet away from start line, place a mallet and tent pegs for each patrol. Space the gear for each patrol far from each other for safety.
On 'GO', first scout on each patrol runs to his patrol's gear, grabs the mallet, positions a peg, takes one swing, and lays the mallet down.
He runs back to tag the next scout in line who gets one swing.
First patrol to drive all pegs into the ground, wins.
May need judges to determine that a peg is finished.
Could use hammers and nails into a piece of 2x4 lumber indoors.
