Mission Details


JAWS OF DEATH


This is a light meal served buffet style scheduled midway through the night for everyone to enjoy. We did it as Mission 6, 10:00-10:30pm. It serves a few purposes.

First is refuels young bodies. By about 10:00pm they will be getting a little hungry.

It serves as a midpoint where you can check everyone's status. First of all, is everyone accounted for? Are there any injuries? Are the events/missions going smoothly? If no to any of these questions you now have the opportunity to apply first aid, organize a search party, or make program adjustments, depending on the need.

We ran our events on Saturday night starting at 8:00pm and running until 1:30am Sunday morning. This creates an obvious problem for LDS units. This mealtime makes for a convenient departure point where LDS units can start their return home at 10:30pm, so they can end their travel time before Sunday. We had one LDS troop involved and this plan seemed to work out for them.


EQUIPMENT NEEDED

  • Shelter (we used a large dining pavilion)
  • Picnic tables
  • Serving tables
  • Beverage Coolers
  • Kitchen Prep Equipment
  • Trash Recepticles
  • First Aid Equipment
  • Paper products (plates, flatware, cups, napkins)
  • Large Coffee Makers (1 for coffee, 1 for hot water)

    PHYSICAL ARRANGEMENTS
    We used a dining pavilion for this event. It was centrally located on the camp property. It had ample seating, lighting, running water, serving areas, and kitchen area. It also had nearby bathroom facilities

    We also had a large blazing fire nearby in case people were cold. It also helped mark the location making it easier to find in the dark and drew people away from the tables after they were done eating creating room for the next group.


    ACTION
    We moved people through the serving line quickly as they arrived and after they said grace. We recorded the patrol and number of people to check against the original roster. (We didn't loose anyone)


    SCORING
    Patrols were scored on their ability to find the dining facility and their conduct while eating. I am proud to say that everyone scored perfect points on this event.


    STAFF ACTIONS

    CHECK IN PATROLS
    EXPLAIN THE RULES

    We basically pointed them toward the food, reminded them of grace if necessary, and asked them to be considerate when taking food. There was plenty of food for everyone.

    ISSUE EQUIPMENT
    Paper products as they passed through the line.

    ANNOUNCEMENTS

    LOST AND FOUND

    KEEP THEM MOVING
    There is little time. After each patrol has had firsts, announce seconds and stand aside.


    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE requires approximately 30 staff members.

    Events will conclude by 1:30am. Patrol Leaders will turn in their Patrol's computer disk before returning to their campsite. All Scouts/Webelos should be in their campsites and quiet by 2:00am.


    SCORING PATROLS

    Patrols will be given a computer disk. Scores will be written in a square on the disk. Each event will grade on a possible total of 10 points.

    Each event will have a 2 letter code. For the score, write the two letter code, followed by a score from 0 to 10.

    For example: SH9

    that would mean 9 points from Stealth Hike.
