Scouts have a ball

Chane and Tiaan Scheepers: in charge of the feel-good music for the scouts fun day.

Sunday was a fun day at Zandvlei Sea Scout Base in Lakeside.

The sea scouts treated visitors to sailing on the vlei, tombola stalls and a range of food, games and activities.

Scouts had the best of fun as good natured scout leaders put their faces on the line in the Scouter Sponge Toss; and there were two talks about birds and snakes by Martin Odd, known as the Birdman of Cape Town, who brought with him a vulture, a rock kestrel, a tame hadeda and a handful of harmless snakes to show off to the crowd.
