Merlins Scouts Roar at Dragonboat Race

Merlin Scouts took to the water on Sunday 2nd July to take part in the Annual District Scout Dragonboat Regatta at the Wokingham Waterside Centre. The team of 10, plus Drummer to set the pace, streaked through its qualifying heat to grab a place in the semi final where it unfortunately met its match from much older teams. Not to be down hearted, the Scouts made the best of a blisteringly hot day by throwing themselves into the many activities there (climbing wall, bouncy castle etc) alongside hundreds of other Scouts.
