Equipment – Fire sparker for each person, matches for each person, surface that a cotton ball can burn

on (may scar), cotton balls, fire safety water, timer

cotton ball, let them fail first):

  • Everyone on the team will burn a cotton ball using just a match. Use the match and set the burnt match(es) next to the cotton ball.
  • If teams are not even, the patrol leader of the largest patrols picks who does not compete.

  • Lose one point if more than 2 matches are used to burn the match cotton ball.
  • The first team to have all cotton balls properly burnt gets .5 points.
