Beavers really bowled over
3rd Blackpool Beavers were bowled over by a trip to the bowling alley.
The youngsters and leaders had a brilliant and fun evening seeing how many “pins the Beavers could bowl over”.
The group took over many bowling lanes for some healthy competition.
It took some time to get the hang of the action, but once they did it was who could knock down the most skittle over the 10 games.
Refreshments followed with juice and chips and it was a great end to a fantastic Scouting season.
A spokesman for 3rd Blackpool Beavers said: “We had a brilliant night bowling.
“It was lots of fun and a great end to the year.
“Have a fantastic summer everyone, see you in September!”
Roll on September when all the Scouting fun starts again!
