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: Region Rally 2015

Eleven Scouts and three leaders went along to Region Rally in May. This year it was held in an urban environment, with patrols of Scouts having to find their way around Newcastle CBD and Stockton, participating in activities along the way. Despite a showery start, the weather ended up being quite kind to us, and everyone had a great time.

Even being woken by Haggis’s bagpipes at 6:15am on Sunday :)
