Scout and Explorer Swimming Gala

Saturday 7th February 2004

Saltney Ferry Scouts and Explorers took part in the Flintshire District Swimming Gala at Connah's Quay Swimming Pool. Although not usually successful at Galas, at least this year we did manage to do well in some races. We won the Explorer Back Stroke, Scout Plunge and Glide, and came second and third in a number of other races. The greatest achievement was in the Egg and Spoon Race, in which we came 1st and 2nd. A bizarre race involving the transporting of a table tennis ball on a spoon across the pool. Although bizarre it did appear to be great fun. We managed to get 24 points and came fourth(I think), far better than previous years. Well done to Tim, Dan, Ash, Simon, James, and Luke for taking part. They all gave their all, and were lads the Group could be proud of.
