Raise the Flag Pole game

Teach the scouts lashing.
Wrap thrice, frap twice.
Give each patrol 3 sticks about 1/2 inch in diameter and 3 to 5 ft long.
Have them lash a flagpole and raise a flag,
using at least 3 sticks.
The top stick should be almost vertical, with no sagging.
Rough sticks are easier to work with than broom handles.
