Isaac and Lily came third with ‘Showbusiness’ - a cart featuring the glitz of entertainers with an original guitar neck feature on the front chassis and parrot figure head. Detachable showbiz signs made for a useful water shield for Lily as she bra
ved the fireman’s hose by the Abbey.
Louie and Toby came second with ‘Death on Wheels’ - a very sinister looking duo with Toby pushing his Skeleton brother Louie as The Grim Reaper. The coffin and headstone looked like they had just been dug up from the Abbey graveyard.
and William and Oliver first with ‘Tanzania 2017’ (or, Tan-zane-ee-uh, as the event commentator pronounced it!) - promoting their trip next year they crossed the finishing line in first place dressed in animal costumes and cart with African themes. Could have been the caste from Lion King!
Impossible to give prizes to everyone but our other worthy entrants included
Jamie and Jack ‘R’ sporting very convincing Dennis the Menace costumes and a cart ’The Menace’, complete with Gnasher mounted on the front. By the end of the race the poor dog looked a bit worse for wear but it was quite a long way round the course…
Theo S and Marcus produced ‘Ferrari la Go Kart’ with a super paint job and Formula 1 style bodywork. A high speed duo who had an excellent race start and I hope we will see more of their styling ingenuity next time we race!
Henry B and Theo C had an excellent race and some wheel to wheel action with entrants from the Cubs 100 team. Their theme and costume as Pokemon Mega Ruby and Alpha SaphireX was brilliant and showed great imagination.
The cart racing was followed by the Wheel Barrow Race and the Bed Race and finally the Prize Giving. Thanks to the Carnival Committee for organising the event which judging by the reactions of the crowd was hugely enjoyed
Well done to 3rd Romsey Scout Group for being a part of it!
