We can build it

Recently our highly skilled Branch Activity Leader for Pioneering, Gino Monteleone, with others from the Pioneering team, led a major pioneering exercise to construct a bridge over theMurrumbidgee River on the outskirts of Canberra.

Doing so required liaison with various government agencies given the structures location, and appropriate safety considerations and logistics given the size and reach of the structure.

The resulting 100 metre structure was fantastic and shows what can be achieved with a great idea and some effort to make it happen. Our congratulations for a great initiative.

Pioneering courses are regularly run by Scouts ACT and both Adult and Youth Members are welcome to come along. Check out the Branch Calendar for dates.
