Hovercraft 2014

IMG_0290

On Thursday 19th June we had a "Hovercraft" night!  One of our Scouts (Adam) is an experianced "hoverer" and has his own craft.

 
Adam and his dad, Daniel, build and race their own craft with Daniel being a former World Champion and holding a current high rank in his class.
 
We were able to see Adam's craft and he flew it around the Scout hut.  No mean feat given the tight space, sloping ground, over-excited Scouts running around.

After a very informative talk from Daniel we watch some videos of hovercraft racing crashes and then went on to make some toy craft from Fruit Shoot bottles and old CDs.  A good time was had to all.
 
 
A big thank you to Adam and Daniel!
