Palm Beach Scouts Drink Station
A friend of mine is Mel – Mel is the Fundraiser for the Palm Beach Scouts here on the Gold Coast and she ran a Drink Station at the 10km mark of the marathon.
Mel had 22 Scouts helping her out and their aim was to win the $1,000 prize for best drinks station!
As you can see by the photo to the left she had her team looking good and cheering loud!
What They Did
* Encouraging signs leading to and away from the drinks station (in English and Japanese)
* Mel’s daughter Laura taught the Scouts team encouraging phrases in Japanese
* Ensure drinks we’re cold, organised and plentiful
And The Winner Is…….
The winner of the $1,000 wasn’t Palm Beach Scouts! Bad luck Mel :o(
But Mel’s team came second and picked up a very handy $250 to help the Scouts out.
Great stuff Mel and well done to all runners.
