ALMOST 3,000 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from Cheshire have set a new world record – for wobble board playing!
The mass ‘wobbling’ took place at the county’s Chamboree 2010 International Camp at the start of a week-long programme of activities and events.
In total 2,811 wobble boards were played along to Rolf Harris’s Tie Me Kangaroo Down as the previous record of 666 participants was shattered.
The event was filmed and photographed to provide the documentary evidence for Guinness World Records.
The camp, held at the Cheshire County Showground at Tabley, saw Cheshire’s Scouts joined by troops from the USA, Ireland, Kenya, Norway, Sierra Leone, Germany and Denmark.
Activities at the camp included traditional Scouting skills plus zones teaching everything from BMXing to trash art.
Youngsters were able to try hundreds of activities including old favourites and new opportunities to have a go at something different.
The camp featured activity zones, enabling Scouts to undertake a range of exciting pursuits.
Everyone attending was able to go for an Adventure Challenge and a special badge for Chamboree 2010, the Chamboree Knight.
