This post is probably going to be really boring to read but I'm only writing so that I will remember. We had a Leadership/ROTC day on Friday which was an event during the school day where our two leadership classes got divided in to teams and did things that were held by the ROTC students, and it was so much fun! It was probably up with my best school days ever. Anyways I'm just gonna go through what we did that day.
We started up with getting divided into teams of around 8 people and went through the simplified schedule of the day. Then we started with doing 6 different "missions" that made us work together as a group. They all pretty much had to do with military stuff. The first one was getting through an invisible fence: which was a stick that the team had to get over or under while holding at least two teammates each. Then there were a couple of events that had to do with minefields. In one, everyone in the team were blindfolded except for one person who were supposed to lead everyone through a minefield made of cones and ropes by telling them how to walk. If you touched a mine you died and had to lay down at that spot. Another one was a big version of a game that at least I always played on the computer when I way younger. something with mines and you used numbers to find out there the mines where, we had five minutes to do this and my group did really well. we would have finished if it wasn't for one of the mines that were in the wrong place...
After that we had lunch before we got together for our final event. One of our teammates was missing and our mission was to find this person and get him to a place where we were supposed to "leave with a helicopter". To do this we got clues that led to places all over campus before we finally found our teammate who "broke both of his legs" so we had to carry him from one side of campus to the other. But to make this harder we could get attacked by the enemies which were the ROTC students wearing masks and throwing water balloons. If you were hit you needed to put on a bandaid and have help from the teammates to keep walking.
It ended up with the police coming since they were wearing masks and people here are pretty scared of like school shootings and stuff. But we had so much fun anyways. The entire thing was really well done and in some ways it kinda felt like we were on a real mission😂feels like an idea I might bring to my school home in Sweden and at least do something similar.
Also the day after, I was so sore! Really used muscles I'm not used to using.
