|The Amazing Trail |
By Brenda Wang
The Amazing Trail is back again this year. It is a family event where parents and children get together to participate in games. There is no exception this year.
I am sure this year's Amazing Trail theme surprises everyone. The Amazing Sculpture Trail is indeed a special theme. Many people may think that sculptures are nothing. Sculptures are actually educational, and sometimes, tell you about the past.
On the day of the Amazing Trail, everyone gathered at the hall to have a final briefing. T-Sculpture with passer-by and team J
shirts were handed out along with several clues to the places we needed to go to. On the way out, we were given snacks and water to consume on the trip.
The race started. Teams had to go to different locations where sculptures were located. We had to find out the history of the sculpture, the sculptor, or others and take a group photo usually with passer-bys.
Some scouts touched my heart. At the Registry of Marriages, a scout from each team had to propose to a passer-by. Some were reluctant but others were not. Those who were not reluctant touched my hearts. They did it to earn their team 100 points.
The race was over around evening. Everyone gathered at the beautifully decorated Hall. We welcomed the Chief Commissioners with our "Adigi" yell. He gave us a speech, followed by the Deputy Chief Commissioner's one. The Pelican Scout sign with the scout sign and motto.
We had everyone's favourite throwing of yarn. The rest of the games were introduced by emcees Bertrand and Louise with Baloo leading us.
Next we had a scrumptious dinner, a wide spread of food along with the slide show. Everyone loved the satay. Then the Batucada dancers had their turn on the stage with their marvelous performance.
After that, there was a dance created by Baloo. Winners were given a price each.
It was time. The winners of The Amazing Sculpture Trail were revealed. Souvenirs were given to the VIPs.
To end the programme, everyone got to their feet to sing the scout hymn. It was an unforgettable day.
Said assistant senior sixer Bryan Wang"The Amazing Sculpture Trail is fun and adventurous. It teaches me that when we meet with problems, we have to face it calmly. If not, the problem will not be solved."
