Billy Cart Building – A Patrol Activity 18/01/2014
by Michael Davis
Participating scouts Michael Davis, Gene McLay, Kenneth Wong and Thomas Bramich
Gene, Kenneth and Thomas met at my place (Michael) and we made plans to build a billy cart for the Kensington billy cart race on Australia Day down Macaulay Road.
We organized the wood, paint and things we had and then scavenged some wood left for hard rubbish across the park from my house. My dad took us to Bunnings to get wheels and rope and big bolts.
We built the billy cart to specifications on the race form then painted it.
Kenneth and I tested it out on the hills at Holland Park the next day after the paint had dried.
I drove the billy cart on the day and unfortunately placed third out of four but we had fun.
