Picture the scene……….a hot air balloon is in trouble and losing height, about to plunge into shark infested waters. To keep it flying weight must be thrown overboard. This year scouts drew names of fictional characters and prepared their costumes and arguments. After each round of debate, three scouts were chucked out of the balloon. Our evening was run by a very dapper Debate Master (Russell) and competition was brutal. Bribery and threats were commonplace and the three members of the judging panel (Richard, Charlie and Stan) were happy to accept large quantities of chocolates and sweets for extra points! Dobby, Dr Who and ‘He who shall not be named’ made it to our semi finals with Dobby triumphing in the final vote. For pictures of all the competitors follow the link on the albums page.
