At the end of first term 2009 when the Guides were planning out their program a few wanted ball activities.  Others wanted to have a BBQ, while others wanted just to be outside later than normal.

We ended up going to the Glendonald park ion Churchill.  Here there is a net ball and basket ball court.  Well half the court is net ball, the other half is basket ball.

After all the glass was swept away we were able to go on with trying to get a leader to throw the basket ball  into the hoop.  After a while she actually did it.  Much to her surprise.  But the Guides won the count.  Even Debbies 2 year old grandchild helped.  We put her on our shoulders then helped her throw the ball into the hoop.  We stood under the hoop.  She did better than the leaders.

The leaders might need practice gettintg the ball into the hoop but they can still pass the ball with force behind it!
