THE LOST LEADERS

Numbers. Any number of Patrols.

Ground. Adaptable.

Gear. Wool for trail.

Time. 1 hour.

Description. 

The Scouter must arrange for the Patrol Leaders to disappear without warning, either in camp, or possibly before a Troop Meeting. Each Patrol Leader has with him a supply of wool cuttings of one color, each having a different color from the others. Let them have half an hour's start, and arrange the routes they are to follow. The trails are to be laid with the wool. 

The Troop is called together as normally; the absence of the Patrol Leaders is remarked upon; the Scouter should hand to each Second a piece of wool of the same color as that used by his Patrol Leader for laying a trail, with the remark, "Find your Patrol Leader." 

Comments. This is a useful game as a surprise item. It could be also used as a way of getting the Troop assembled at a distant point for some other game. It is a good method of trying out the capabilities of the Seconds.
