Richardg has sent in some photographs of this morning’s launch of the Scouts ballooning program in Canberra with this note:
Here are some photos from this morning’s launch by Chief Minister Katy Gallagher and ACT Scouts Chief Commissioner Peter Harris.
The project is part of the ACT Centennial celebrations and it is the only Scouts balloon in Australia. The balloon’s colours reflect all the sections of Scouting, from Joeys to Rovers. The aim is not only to train Scouts as pilots, but to teach teamwork as part of the ground crews’ duties.
The frost on the ground says the rest!
