Scouts: Term 3 2015

Term 3 began with a night of maintenance around Jubilee Hall as part of Job Week, and then continued as we worked on our Citizenship badges with nights themed around 1st Aid, Balloons (including balloon animals and making / launching a hot air balloon), preparation for the district hiking weekend, fitness, landcare, our Scottish international night (eating haggis – the food not our leader!), law and promise, a hike around Paterson and a combined night with other Lower Hunter troops. And of course, lots of games and fun!

Outside of our regular meetings we had Scouts attend the District Hiking weekend, Billy Cart Derby and Abseiling.

Some Scouts took part in a Scout Fundraising BBQ at Woodville Store.

Congratulations to Matthew Beasley for being the Scout Champion as well as Champion of Champions for the Billy Carting!

Scouts: District Hiking weekend

On 15th & 16th August, 10 Scouts, accompanied by Yogi, hiked through the Brisbane Water National Park at Kariong. The weekend was organised by Iceman as a District Hiking weekend, which meant several other troops (East Maitland, Beresfield and Thornton) also took part. They hiked a different trail to our troop on the Saturday and we came together for the campfire and Sunday’s walk to Aboriginal rock carvings for the Scouts Own.

A fun weekend was had by all!
