Today we ran two kayak and two canoe sessions at Top Barn near Holt Heath for 1st Worcester Scouts.
It turned out to be a very successful day and everyone enjoyed themselves despite the windy conditions.
As is typical with a scout group things started out not quite according to plan. We ended up being 3 to 4 coaches/assistants down on the day, the water based scout assistance never appeared, we ended up with nearly 40 scouts instead of the low 30’s we were expecting and the kit had not been arranged properly by the scouts to cover the numbers.
This is where our club do well all pulling together. With some good team work a new plan was hatched with the people we had. This plan relied on juniors Tom, Rachel, Harry and Olliver being a key part. All the coaches were extremely impressed with how mature and helpful they were throughout the day and we could not have done it without you
Adult coaches and assistants were Adam, John G, Graham, Caroline, Ed, Paul C, Matt, Simon and providing vital bank support Rita.
We had a good debrief afterwards to map out everything we learnt so we can pass this on to other groups.
Well done to all.
