New Record Set by Scouts

A New Laser Tag World Record 

 

More than 10,000 young scouts hit Maryborough Showgrounds in an attempt to break a world record for the biggest game of tag.

In fact, tens of thousands of Boy Scouts converged on Queensland for the Australian Scouts Jamboree.

One of the highlights of the massive two-week long event will be a huge game of laser tag.

The Scouts Australia booked 500 laser tag phasers so hundreds of scouts can play at a time.

Two sessions a day, morning and afternoon, are planned for the 10-day festival. 

So a new record of almost 10,000 people playing tag at one event will be set. 

The Jamboree is held every four years with scouts travelling from across Australia as well as internationally. Maryborough West Scout Charlee Howard-Osborne was one of the first the scouts to book in. "A Jamboree is a lifetime experience, you realise what your parents do for you," she said. As well as the fun games such as laser tag, Scouts do their own washing and cooking at the Jamboree with an emphasis on learning new skills and fending for themselves. AJ2013 chief director Pieter Van Der Kamp said the camping environment would be an eye-opener for many of the thousands of scouts. 

The Jamboree will have its own newspaper, radio station, markets and a nighttime entertainment precinct. Events will also be held around Maryborough and scouts will also travel up to Hervey Bay for all their water activities.

 

More than 11,000 Scouts from all over Australia and many other countries converged on Queensland for the 2013 Australian Scouts Jamboree.

"My son is going to LOVE this when it is his turn!!!" said Angelli Meza.

"My son will love it too," said Ricky Begelhole.

This was a new world record of almost 10,000 people playing laser tag at one event was set.

It was also the record for the biggest single rental of laser tag equipment in the world.
