One Survival Game


Best to play in bushland

Preparation

A copy of instructions per patrol. An area (island) marked out per patrol. Necessary or useful gear (as below) scattered about the area.

  • odd ropes
  • cups
  • ‘billy
  • tea bags
  • water
  • powdered milk
  • flour
  • Ice-cream container
  • Spoons
  • Matches
  • Slings
  • A copy of semaphore
  • Clue to the identity of the saboteur

N.B. You have to make sure that only one person has a tie on.

eg. EITR UOYF ODIR TEGKS IRT ASI YTITN EDIRU OYK| NIH TUO YFI

(Hint: If you can’t work this out you must be standing backwards.)

Instructions to Patrol

You are the survivors of a plane crash. You are on an island with your fellow survivors and have no immediate means of getting home. Deal with the following problems as best you can using anything you can find on your island to salvage. You should deal with them in the order which you consider most important or practical. Remember that you can’t swim across the shark infested waters to ask us for help. We might rescue you in about 1V2-2 hours.

• Make a shelter to protect you from the weather.

• Make a ‘meal’ of tea and damper.

• Administer First Aid to one of your group who has a broken leg, and transport her to the shelter.

• Send a message to the mainland (you’re too far to shout and we can’t see any signs you write).

• Find out who in your group sabo­taged the plan and tie her up. (There is some clue in the wreckage as to who this person may be.)

Jump Rope for Heart 2010.

Ever thought of holding a Skipping  or Jump Rope get together.  Did you know that there are World and Region skipping competitions?

Well! We are combining a skipping activity that raises funds for the Heart research with an overnight stay.  Not sure whose going to have the most fun though.  The start time is 10 am Thursday July 2010. Originally intended for the Jump Rope to occur with Heart week but time wise this was not going to occur. For now the Jump Rope For Heart is not on the Region Agenda.  How ever the Gipps Guides have involved the Hazelwood and Churchill Guide District.

The finnish time is 12 oo  [noon] then lunch should be served.  Parents and Friends are invited to this activity which will be held at the Hazelwood South Hall.  In case of rain at this time of year the Hall is big enough for participants and spectators.  The Hazelwood South Hall’s  floor is wooden so there is plenty of bounce.

A gold coin donation is expected and will be going to ally lunch costs of feeding the participants and the others.  NOTE :  This money is separate to the overnight stay costs.

Previously the Gipp’s Guides have organised a Bounce-a-thon and various members have also assisted the Youth members with their skipping challenges. Are they up to scratch with the Double Dutch Challenge?  Will you be there to watch, turn the ropes or help with other things? What about just keeping the ropes tidy?

Jump-Rope-For-Heart was suggested as a service to an organisation during 2009.  The Jump-Rope-for-Heart Subcommittee is being organised through the Gipp’s Guides. Other members may join the subcommittee though.

An A.N.Z.A.C. Experience Wide Game

The objective of this wide game is to teach the Guides something about what preparation the soldiers had on their way to Gallipoli during the First World War. The wide game itself was set out through the Guiding in Australia Magazine.

Since the soldiers traveled by sea their trainings had to carry on throughout the long weeks of the trip. So certain skills were practiced through out this time.

Pre teach the following skills to the Guides in the lead up to the Wide Game time.

  • Understand what the A.N.Z.A.C. acronym stands for.  What did the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps do?
  • Practice Semaphore and Morse Code.
  • Knots using square knots to make things.
  • First Aid and Slings.
  • Knots and lashings to make stretchers.
  • Pre-cook A.N.Z.A.C. biscuits
  • Learn how to make billy tea.

The wide game consists of the following Activities.

  1. Patrols aboard ship and Prepare for sailing.
  2. Staying fit whist on the ship
  3. Arrival at Mena Camp in Egypt.
  4. Further preperations for Turkey
  5. Landing at Galliopli.
  6. Settling in at Galliopli
  7. Surviving the trenches
  8. Decoy cricket
  9. Evacuation to Egypt.
