Tates Compass Lesson   Tates Compass Lesson Skit   Scout Skit

This Skit is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
One senior scout (or scoutmaster)
2 scouts
a compass
a map
This one should get a couple of groans.
Set the scene to be a senior scout teaching new scouts about compass work.

Sr. Scout: Now fellows, if you take a bearing from the map this way you can now stand up and, keeping the compass away from your belt buckle, walk along the bearing until you reach your destination. Here, Billy, you try.

Billy: (Does as instructed, exits, re-enters)

Sr. Scout: You can also take a bearing on a distant object and use that to find where you are on the map. Jimmy, you take a bearing of that oak tree.

Jimmy: (Do as instructed)

Sr. Scout: Good job! That wraps up our compass lesson. There is just one more important point about your equipment! Never, never buy a TATES compass.

Billy: Why should we never buy a TATES compass?

Sr. Scout: Well, you know the old saying: 'He who has a TATES is lost!'
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
