Orion Scouts Assault Course 2005

On Tuesday 5th July 2005, Orion Scout Troop embarked on building it's world famous indoor assault course. The Scouts built the course using a variety of knots, some more unusual than others. They did do very well however. The course consisted of a rope-like bridge which connected to the cargo net run. After the cargo net came the tyres - a tricky obstacle at the best of times. Following on from the tyres is the monkey bars, a first for Orion Troop!

Here are the photos from the evening's antics... larger images can be found by clicking on each thumbnail. Jonathan has the high quality versions should you require them.
