I remember how fun it was to take part in all the games when I was a Beaver, and later on a Cub. Needless to say all the up and coming slacklining stars of the future were just as excited to find two slacklines to play on, for the 8th Holborn Scout Group Community Day!
The weather held out, allowing us to rig 2 lines, one with big, juicy crash mats underneath!
We had a constant stream of kids all day, and a couple of stars who really learnt fast!
Here’s a short video from the day:
It was great being surrounded by such energy and enthusiasm for something new.
I’d had a hard week, but somehow the kids’ smiles and laughter gave me a boost.
Thanks 8th Holborn Scout Group for a great day, Maverick Slacklines for providing the lines and Jake for helping me out.
