Candle Roll Over

Four players are chosen for each team. Two are lined up in front of the

starting line and two opposite on the distance line. One of the players

on the starting line is given a lighted candle. A mat is placed half

way between the starting and the distance lines. At the signal to start

the player holding the candle advances to the mat, executes a forward

roll on the mat, holding the candle in his hand. Should the candle go

out during the roll, he must go back to the starting line and start

over after lighting the candle. When he has succeeded in making the

roll without extinguishing the candle, he proceeds to the distance line

where he passes on the lighted candle to the second member of his

team. This one returns to the starting line, rolling on the mat as did

his predecessor. Should the candle in his hand become extinguished, he

must go back to the line from which he started, light his candle and

start over. This continues until all four men have covered the required

distance, each having rolled over without having extinguished the
