Rangers Christmas Tree Festival

>>  Saturday, December 15, 2018

I've been helping out at our local Christmas tree festival for years (8 it seems.) I've helped my mum do numerous entries and we've put Brownie trees in across the years like 201120132014 but I've never done a tree with Rangers.  So this year I thought I would try.

It started out as a simple idea
with a bit of lashing
and a few props the idea was formed.
And the Rangers made paracord christmas trees
with lights in amongst logs
a mock mulled wine in the dutch oven (a set jelly with cinnamon sticks, dried orange slice and cloves on), ladle and cup
pine cones and leaves

A necker and promise badge at the top
It all staged very well.

It looked lovely and got a few votes.

It was called 'Campmas time, paracord and wine'

I did think it was going to be a one off entry as it is a hard weekend for me generally working the tea and mince pie sales for a solid 10 hours across the 2 days so adding the building your own tree and taking it down makes it doubly so.

Some of the Rangers also did long kitchen shifts, they are good girls, there is no 'benefit' directly to them for doing it, it is good of them to care.

But it was fun, I might have a think about doing another one next year if I can come up with an idea.

We'll see.
