Battalion Fun Day 2018
By Halifax BB, May 26 2018 01:19PM
On Saturday 19th May, we held our biennial Fun Day and what a day it was!
Each Section had some fantastic activities for their members. The Anchors enjoyed some games, a bouncy castle and we even found time for a couple of magic shows. Due to a lack of the traditional ‘glamorous assistants’, the magician had to settle with Christian. Despite this setback, the magical maestro delivered two shows that enthralled the Anchor Boys, parents and Officers.
The Juniors had three inflatable activities; an assault course, a jousting game and a punch wall as seen on ‘Total Wipeout’. The jousting game stirred some intrigue amongst our younger officers as they were set up for the day. The aim of the games is to straddle a horizontal pole, that is set up on a similar structure to a bouncy castle, and knock your opponent off the pole using an inflatable joust. The staff struggled with the first part of the game….actually getting on the pole. It is harder than it looks, the best tactic was to clamber up the side of the inflatable and lower yourself on to the pole. The Juniors really enjoyed taking part in all the games and there was a prize for the winners of the mini-tournaments.
Meanwhile, the Company Section ran a Laser Tag tournament throughout the afternoon. It was good to hear the lads from different Companies talking tactics and swapping war stories. Even the staff for involved and it was good to see Sections enjoying each other’s activities.
A fantastic event and a superb team effort, thanks to all involved!
The Junior Section Football competition is also now underway and we also have the first ever Ultimate Frisbee event to look forward to!
