What do Sieges and Imaginary Assault Courses have to do with Cubs I hear you ask!

Well that's exactly what our Wednesday Night Pack found out this week, as they learnt about the real life hero of the Scouting Association, Founder Robert Baden Powell.

They learnt about the Siege of Mafeking - and built their own cardboard fort. While some defended it, the others all attacked - using paper ammunition of course!

Then they took part in a really difficult imaginary assault course to prove they had what it takes to be a Cub. Difficult because they had to remember exactly where all those barbed wire fences and narrow balance beams were to make it back without any injuries. I'm glad to say we had 100% success rate, without any injuries!
