Scout-built bridges in urban adventure race

The Nelson Mandela Bay Urban Run takes place in September in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Last year, the Scout groups of Nelson Mandela Bay built two obstacles- a monkey bridge and a tripod-based bridge, pictured above. They have been approached to build obstacles again for the race this year. This is a great way to build awareness for Scouting, making the movement visible to people who are active in the outdoors.

This year, the Scouts are building a pontoon bridge from recycled plastic bottles. I hope to have some photos to show you in September.
