Super Saturday blog post
With the songs of last night's campfire still ringing in our ears (literally), we arose on Saturday morning to damp grass but bright skies. Saturday morning was a chance to participate in on-site activities ranging from arts & crafts to climbing and gorge walking.
One of the most sought after activities was the "Atholl Experience". All we knew was it involved copious amounts of mud! From the colour of Joe's t-shirt at the end I can confirm this description to be accurate but from the smile on his face well worth it.
Saturday afternoon is the world famous Country Fayre, so popular in fact that it requires its own special currency, the "Atholl". So far we have seen: splat-the-rat, face painting, beat the goalie and many, many more. The country fayre also provides an opportunity for Scouts from different countries to experience the food and culture of other nationalities. There are Americans frying burgers, Canadians covering pancakes in maple syrup...and of course Glaswegians deep-frying mars bars.
With so much to see and do, it is hard to get round everything. That is why the 145th has sent out roving reporters to find the inside scoop on the country fayre.
More to come...
