1978-08-23 Swing Ball Marathon Fund Raiser
Robert Forbes (14) keeps the ball swinging for the 97th hour at the Boy Scouts swingball marathon being held at Famona Scout Hall in Bulawayo. Th marathon has been organised by eight members of the 7th Scout Group to raise part of the $1000 needed to send one scout to the World Scout Jamboree in Iran next year, and to set a record of 120hours. So far the boys have about $300 in pledges. Making sure that Robert actually keeps the ball swinging are Brian Dickinson (center) and Kevin Wilson.
