Slide of the month - Observation tester

August 2022

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

Nov. 1971, page 68

Design by: John Taylor

How observant are the Scouts during a meeting? John tell the story of (former?) Scoutmaster Dr. Rizika of Troop 502 Miami, FL who would change the slide midway through the Troop meeting to see if anyone noticed.

This slide was carved using a dried limb from a sugar maple. The hardest part carving was trying to make both arrowheads as similar as possible before painting. Painted with hobby paints and finished with a couple of coats of poly
