The Eagle, is visible in the northern hemisphere from July through October. It represents the bird that carried the mortal Ganymede to the heavens to serve as Zeus’ cupbearer. Aquila is located on the celestial equator, which is the center of an imaginary globe of stars around the Earth known as the celestial sphere. This constellation is the home of Altair, the 11th brightest star in the night sky.
The art of camouflage is a not very well-know scout technique. However, this technique facilitates approach and observation and nature gives us all elements to practise this art such as mud or plants. To perform well you need to adapt to any element of the situation such as light, shadow or colours of the area.
This activity is divided on two parts, the first one is theorical and the second one is practical.
The first part tend to cover all the different ideas which make somebody able to use this technique. For exemple how to progress efficiently and quietly in any areas.
The practical part aim to use all the theory learnt before by taking part in a game.
The troop of Chateau du Loir offers you to participate to this event.
The Olympiads will be centered around small challenges which would oppose the patrols : throwing of polynesian arrows, charot racing, tug of war, hand fight.
There will be a tutorial for building chariots and polynesian arrows if needed.

A partir de la feuille séchée du pandanus, la troupe proposera une initiation au tressage traditionnel, activité trés répandue et réputée des ïles Australes, un des 5 archipels de la Polynésie Française. Chaque participant avec l’aide d’un scout de la troupe de papeete pourra réaliser un objet de son choix ( ceinture, set de table et pour les plus adroits chapeau traditionnel). Cette activité sera une occasion de découvrir la Polynésie au travers d’une de ses traditions les plus vivantes, le tressage, mais aussi des échanges à venir entre les participants. Notre ambition est que chacun reparte avec un petit bout de Polynésie et une connaissance des traditions vivantes de notre Pays ( le Fenua).
From the sheet(leaf) dried by the pandanus, the troop will propose an initiation into the traditional plaiting, the very wide-spread and renowned activity of the Southern islands, one of 5 archipelagoes of the French Polynesia. Every participant, by means of a boy scout of the troop of Papeete can realize an object of his choice (belt, place mat, and for the most skillful traditional hat). This activity will be an occasion to discover Polynésie through one of its most alive traditions. The plaiting, but also exchanges to come between the participants. Our ambition is that each leaves(restarts) with a small end of Polynésie and a knowledge of the alive traditions of our Country. (Fenua)
We propose to share a rallye: the aim is to do a kind of orientation race, and instead of « sign » at each point, the patrol have to try a challenge, in order to get another azimuth to go to the next point.
challenges would be like: – sport: « combat de coq » (cock fight) (face to face, hands in their back, and crouching down, each scout have to make the other scout fall. Needs balance, agility, health (or another and more original sport challenge: I’m open to other ideas). – knots: realize useful knots (the chief would show them if they don’t know, for they could learn and apply it immediatly) (ex: to stretch a cord between to points, to ensure them for climbing, to make a scale…..) – nature knowledge: bring tree species according to their characteristics (good for fire, good for construction, good to make a bow…). Idem, we would prepare a recap with the form of the leafs, for they can recognize it, and remember it for their activites after eurojam. – evening gathering « veillée » technics: whether singing, whether learn or improve and apply a knew technic for sketches – raid: make a topographical report of a little zone ? (to be confirmed)
Possible to adapt the challenges with the Unit Leader who will make this with me, in order to make the scouts of both units progress. Possible to integrate other challenges managed by the chiefs of the other unit, if you want.
Number of patrols: – actually depends on the number of unit leaders who are ready to manage a challenge: the more we are, the more the race will take interest for scouts.
Well, basically we will propose a list of differents games, and 3 will be chosen by leaders and patrols. Mean time of each will game will be 30 minutes, every patrols are competing against each others (some games troop versus troop). Ranking by parols and by troop at the end.
Definitive list of games to be completed.

So if your boys want to do some sports and have great time just come!
It’s a race with a lot of different activity like jumping above a hedge or crawling under branches for 10 merters. An other activity could be walking in a monkey bridge. On the whole it’s a mix of tree climbing and running in the woods.

Each patrol have to cook a typical meal of his country.
The meal can be based on technicity, history…

The patrols play with a scalp and win when in a definit time throw the roverino in gol for more time that the other patrols. This game is an old tradition in own troops and we wish affront another troops in a fantastic match. we wait for your answer.
It’s a very simple game, a bit similar to baseball but it is played with a long wooden stick (pandul) that hits a small piece of wood with pointed ends like a pencil (pindul). The batter is in his team base (a circle), and he has the difficulty of having to first lift to the air with a single hit the little stick (pindul) and then hit the shot to send him away from the base. If the opponents defence is able to pick up the pindul before it touches the ground, the opponents became the batters without any change of the score. If the pindul reaches the ground, Opponents first must take it and try to run it with a single shot in their circle. If they fail, the batter has three shots to the pindul to throw it so far as possible from his own base. Then the batters estimate with as little gap as possible how many « panduls » (40 cm) away the pindul has been shot. Then the opponents can accept the extimation, giving the score an leaving another round to the batters, or claim the measure. If the batters underextimated the distance, they take score from the real distance. But if they overextimated the distance, the batters don’t take any score and give to the opponents the right to beat.
A very simple game and a very challenging one!
