Scouts’ 10km Hike

The Scouts could not have had a lovelier day for their first hike of the spring.  They walked from Point Hut Crossing to Kambah Pool, following a pleasant path along the Murrumbidgee River.  There were stops along the way for playgrounds, eating and resting.  This was an easy introduction to hiking for our younger scouts, and everyone managed without difficulty.  Thanks Koala and Brumby for leading the hike.

Joey Sleepover

The Joeys had a sleepover last weekend.  First they met at the Australian War Memorial and had a tour with Kestrel’s Dad, Bob.  Bob is a volunteer tour guide at the AWM and he had a pocket full of lollies which he shared out among the Joeys for good listening.  Kestrel and Sahi were good listeners too, but the lollies had run out by the time we reached the Enigma machine so we had to carry on bribe-less.  It’s fun being a Leader.  Just kidding.  We all had a good time.  The AWM never fails to deliver.

The Joeys caught an ACTION bus back to the hall and then there was hotdogs for dinner, a movie and a sleepover.

Thanks to Penguin for organising, and our lovely parents for providing logistical support.

Scout Patrol Activity

The Albatross Patrol led by PL Ellen had a sleepover at the hall in early September.  Ellen organised everything herself.  Well done!  I’ll simply use her words from the Activity Note to tell you about it.

“This patrol activity will be focusing on red and blue badge work for the younger and older scouts. At the end of next year, there is AJ 2019 and all scouts attending must have their red cord so this will be a good chance to get a head start on the rest of the troop in achieving our patrols red cords. It will also be a chance for us to get to know each other more as we have jiggled the patrols around a bit and we have new members in our patrol.”
