Duck the Staff   Duck the Staff Game   Scout Game

This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
staff for each team(or broomstick)
Instructions:
Each patrol lines up in single file with at least 10 feet between team lines.
Each patrol leader is given a staff and stands about 5 feet in front of his patrol line, facing them.
On 'GO' signal, the patrol leader tosses the staff with two hands to the first in line. Leader may need to demonstrate that the staff is tossed, not thrown point-first.

The first in line tosses it back to the patrol leader and then ducks down - and hopefully keeps his head covered.
The patrol leader tosses the staff to the next in line and so on to the last in line.
The last in line remains standing and the patrol leader tosses him the staff a second time.
Then, the scout in front of him stands up and receives a toss and tosses it back.
This is repeated until all teammates are again standing and the patrol leader throws the staff to the first in line.

First patrol to go through the cycle and give a yell is the winner.


The perceived danger makes the activity exciting, but being hit by a dropped staff is not harmful.
As long as tosses are done with two hands and not point-first, there is no real danger.

Maryculter Scouts, Deeside, Scotland found this a great new game and we have played it whenever we have a 10 minutes to kill.
