Lashing Travois Races Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Per patrol: 4 15foot ropes, 3 10foot ropes, 3 6-8foot poles
Each patrol assembles by their equipment.
On 'GO' signal, the patrol lashes an A-frame travois using square lashings. They then attach the 4 harness ropes to it.
One scout rides the travois while the rest pull him around the course and back.
When the patrol reaches the finish, they disassemble the travois, stack the equipment, line up, and give patrol yell.
Score for speed, teamwork, quality of travois, neatness of equipment.
