Scouts from both the Moddey Dhoo and Phoenix Scout Troops and the Onchan Explorers are working this week with other Island Scouts on the Scoreboards during the TT Races. Saturday went well with just a short delay, but long delays on Monday meant that we didn’t finish until after 8pm. Well done to all the Scouts involved. Two more days racing to go.
The Scout Passes for the TT Scoreboards have now arrived and will be sent out to Scouts of both the Moddey Dhoo and Phoenix Scout Troops over the next week. The Scout Association had a very large request for passes this year and with the reduced number of Scouts needed, most Scouts will find they are only required on one day out of the four. The organisers had a choice of giving every Scout a day on the Scoreboard, or having just one out of every four who applied being able to attend each race day, with the other three missing out completely, they chose the former.
Each year Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts work on the Grandstand Scoreboards during TT Week. Scouts have been involved with the TT Races for over one hundred years and are an important and traditional part of the worlds most famous motorcycle road races. Soon Leaders from the Group will be taking names of those who wish to take part in this activity, so members are encouraged to get their names in with their Leader. Minimum age for participation is 10 years.
