Captains Log (and not the type dropped off at the b*g)

Tuesday 27 July. What a day….. After breakfast continental style, we headed off to Chessington Theme Park for a day of adrenalin fueled fun and frolics. As the “Funk “ and “Monk” buses rolled sedately into the car park to the screams of Go Bananas at was clear to fellow scouts, theme park workers and innocent that this would be day not to be forgotten in a hurry!

The leadership team have been inverted, laterally twisted, suspended, dropped, elevated, immersed, hung by straps and generally scared witless (nothing new then! 😉 ). The Cobra proved to be a highpoint to the tuneful screams of “Dambusters” and “Hawaii Five-0”. The best however came late in the day when 10 Explorers and a trio of Buff, Osama, and Bomb Squad hit “Rameses Revenge”. Seriously dudes, this ride kicks some behind before baptizing you with Surrey Water Boards finest produce… We hollered, we screamed, we went bananas for the crowds, we left most of the area singing “Go Bananas” and “Fluffy Sheep”. Osama thanks all for their goodwill wishes and we are hoping to reverse the further advanced effects of aging and colour loss shortly.  The busses were noticeably quieter on the way home with 21 dribbling, snoring and mumbling Explorers.
