BrownieOlympics

Gemma is approaching the end of her time as a girl scout Daisy and will soon bridge to Brownies. She had the chance to participate in BrownieOlympics with her old troop from T-K
It is a sporting activity on a Saturday like a mini Olympics. It is a Dad volunteer event.
They participate in relay events all day and then have an award ceremony.
Some of the events were soccer dribble, obstacle courses, running, relays.


The whole troop posing on the award podium.

Luckily it was overcast so it wasn't too hot out. They worked hard and were worn out after the long day of exercise.

They break up the troop into smaller groups of four girls each. Gemma's relay group consisted of one friend from her current school & troop that we invited to join us and then two friends from her T-K class that she has missed.
The award ceremony at the end went on forever and ever. They called up the top winners from each race to the podium and they got a medal to wear. We were cracking up during the award ceremony because Gemma's group kept getting called over and over for winning.



Each time they won after receiving the medal they would get a star pin to place on the ribbon of their medal. Gemma's group ended up with the medal plus four stars each. They got a first place and several second and third. It was a bit awkward because her group was the only team from her troop that won any race, and they won 5 times!! The rest of the troop received a medal at the end of the ceremony for participation.
Next year she will hopefully participate with her own troop so they don't end up winning all the awards from another troop!
