Because they impressed the staff and participants at the previous year’s event, the Scouter heading up the program for the following Council-wide Scout Expo invited the Order of the Arrow to set up several pioneering-related exhibits. Naturally, on the list was a request for a monkey bridge, but additionally the pioneering team was asked to come up with some team building stations and a Scout skills challenge.
For team building they provided the materials and supervision for “Crossing the Alligator Pit,” and also erected an Atomic Pile. For Scout skills they set up a simple Rope-Toss-Log-Lift challenge.
As a bonus they put up a Swing Boat which served as a test run for their annual conclave which was less than a month away.
