Balloon Monster Game
50 balloons and roll of tape for each team.
Mark a starting line and cone or marker around which contestants must race - about 30 yards away.
Each patrol blows up balloons to a minimum diameter - you might want judges to approve the sizes or have a loop of string through which the balloons can not pass.
The tape is wrapped around the patrol volunteer with the sticky side out.
Each balloon is stuck to this scout.
When all balloons are stuck on, he runs around the course and back.
10 points for the first patrol finished, 7 for 2nd, and 3 for 3rd.
3 points for each balloon that is still on the runner at the end.
This race favors larger patrols, so you may decide to have some sit out to even the teams.
