One medium watermelon greased with shortening or vaseline. It will be okay to used in a swimming pool, since the grease will stick to the watermelon.
Float the watermelon in the water between two teams of scouts. Line up the scouts across from the watermelon, 25-feet apart. On the signal, each team will race forward and try to pull the melon back to their own line.
The team that manages to bring the melon all the way back to their side wins and gets the melon (though it is technically not a melon, as it is not a member of the genis Cucumis) Have fun.
