GLSPS and BSA Venture Crew 820 Annual Underwater 
Basket Weaving Event
 



Saturday, September 22nd, 2018


BSA Scuba Venture Crew 820 hosted its seventh annual underwater basket-weaving event on 22 at Golden Acres Campground on Square Lake.


Six youth Scouts wove baskets 20-feet underwater under the supervision of six adult

Scouters, and two additional adult Scouts providing shore support.


All participants enjoyed the sunny 64 to 66 degree day, despite only 10 feet of visibility near the bottom of the lake, with water temperature at 66 degrees.

 

Scouts measured and cut pieces according to the basket kit directions and pre-assembled the base prior to diving. The weavers used the small round reed basket kit pattern the Scout shop sells: the 3”x3”x3” Natural Rattan Reed. This is the easiest to work with while under water, with the extra side material some of the scout’s baskets were 8 inches tall.

 

One small manageable event happened.  A broken wet suit zipper. Thank goodness for duct tape.

Scouts arrived in uniform to represent the Scout format.

 

In 59 to 67 minutes of bottom time, the Scouts completed weaving the sides while kneeling on dive platform 20-feet below the water surface. They finish the top loops back on land after the baskets dry out.

 

This event embodies all the elements of a perennial Scout fall classic: adventure, convenience, timeliness, creative expression, and ----FUN!
