@ Scouts, Monday we had an evening with the Scouts patrol "Falchi" from Don Bosco di Formia, (LT - ITALY) @ Bechamps. We had classic arcade games and also had some IP Radio. Italian Patrol Leader Daniele had a chat with a ham in Scotland. The Scouts used an Italian Phrase Sheet by Charlotte to speak some Italian.
