Scouts Jambowlree 2017

<?php the_title(); ?>

So for something different we decided at the 10th to attempt the International (but unofficial) Jambowlree. An invited was sent across the Spur and we had the 13th Scouts and Leaders join us as well as representatives from the 11th and the 20th Scouts.

Despite having to pre-book, I just don’t think AMF Bowl in Torquay quite knew where to turn as 80 Scouts and leaders turned up at 10am on a Saturday morning!  Still with some assistance from the glamorous leaders of the 10th once we had everyone checked in, parents at the ready we got the Sections bowling.

Bar the usual technical frustrations with Ten Pin bowling I think it is fair to say that everyone had a ball with some really impressive scores being lodged.  Highest score went to Brandon from the 10th Land Scouts with 140 and then hot on his heels was Bosun with a score of 137. 

 

The highest team score came from the cub section with the “The Peas and Carrots Legends” (have no idea where that name came from!!) racking up 659 – only one of the team scored under 100 points!  We managed to get a member from every team in the top 10 which is fairly impressive when you take into account we had the beavers there too and the scoring was so high.  Although this was clearly just for fun the competitive streak quickly came out with lanes challenging each others score.  However, the Scouting ethos of “Helping

others” was also very much apparent as those who hadn’t bowled before or struggled got support and help from their peers.  It was great to see.

Final scores in and submitted and already the request to participate in 2018 has been called!  Well lets wait and see what the final global table shows in May to see what we have to defend (or not as the case may be!) before we commit to anymore !!!!!

Thanks to the 13th and the Scouts from the 20th and 11th that came great to see you and hope to see you for 2018!
