On 15 May, KKOSM hosted the scout patrol ”Edelweiss” from the Tbilisi scouting organization. Rustavian scout leaders prepared a range of entertaining activities which enabled the two groups of scouts to interact with each other .They were introduced to various scouting techniques and gained skills such as how to walk on a slackline and to enjoy rope swinging. The day was very positive and productive for all participants.
