Current news from Walton District Guides and Brownies
March began with a bang for 1st Hagley Rangers who took part in the 2022 Monopoly Run in London. We stayed at Pax Lodge one of Girlguiding’s World Centres and participated in the event on Saturday 5 March along with around 6000 members of Scouting and Girlguiding. The event involved playing in a game of live Monopoly across London.
Teams were pitched against each other on virtual Monopoly boards to get to specific locations found on the streets and stations of a traditional Monopoly board game. When the location was successfully reached teams could check in using the GPS powered Monopoly Run App.
Getting there before your competitors meant that you could rent the location on the app but arriving after others meant that you had to pay rent just like in the game of Monopoly. The balance in your virtual bank could be boosted with fun challenges such as creating a human pyramid and submitting your photograph.
In total 945 teams competed and 1st Hagley Rangers’ three teams came 449th, 269th and 137th. What a fantastic way to see London and how great it was to be part of a large scale Girlguiding and Scouting event once more.
It is amazing where Girlguiding can take you
