Pioneering by non-Scouts...



This last weekend, first year architecture students from Wits university built shelters that they had to sleep in for the weekend. There were one or two scouts involved (some rather tidy square lashings were in evidence) but quite a few people doing this for the first time. Take a look at my Architecture blog for some photos of the construction- and to read a bit more about the weather we had this weekend.

Yeah one of my fellow group mates was quite educated in lashing, it really provided our structure with great stability! What a marvelous weekend it was, i had so much fun and really got to know my class! Its a great first year project.
