Week Ending 11.10.14
Rain, hail and sunshine on Cub Day
They had lots of fun doing bases like loom band woggles, bead men, making badges, sawing wood and cooking food in tinfoil and lots more.
The day ended with a campfire led by Mark and saying thanks to the leaders who had given their time to ensure the Cubs had more special memories to add to their Scouting experience bank.
Busy weekend for Northface Unit
Last weekend the 32nd Northface Explorer Scout Unit was out and about in between Young Leaders training modules.
On Saturday a patrol spent the afternoon kayaking at Castle Semple Loch, while the following day another patrol took to the hills and headed to Cornalees on a mountain bike adventure.
The unit are currently gearing up for a busy programme over the next few weeks with winter hill walking and an exciting Halloween adventure.
Birkmyre Unit get started with Young Leader’s Scheme
The scheme gives amazing opportunities to enhance leadership skills, make yourself more employable and gain valuable experiences that will help you if you decide to continue volunteering as an adult.
It’s a position of responsibility that’s challenging but fun, and you’ll know that you’re making a real difference.
The First Response Team
16 young leaders from Kilmacolm to Wemyss Bay achieved their fist response as part of the Young Leaders Module K training module. Well done to the Young Leaders who took part and thanks to our trainer Susan.
Netball visit for 32nd Cubs
The 32nd cubs had a special visit from U/23 Scotland netball Rebecca Munn. Rebecca gave the cubs a short talk on the training she does and the tournaments she has represented her country at.
They then got an introduction session to the game of netball to help work towards their Fitness Challenge Badge. A big thank you to Rebecca for coming along and meeting us all.
85th Inverkip and Wemyss Bay had a shot at paintballing
The 85th Inverkip & Wemyss Bay had a ball last weekend when they spent a day paintballing at Delta Force in Houston.
The group took part in six different scenarios during the day and there was nothing to separate the two teams by lunchtime with the scores neck-and-neck all morning.
Congratulations to Eve from the brown team who won the Marshall’s Top Gun award for leading from the front throughout, and to Calum of the green team who earned the award for his team by managing to raise the flag over the enemy in the Castle game.
The day was eventually won by the brown team, although the ‘best bruises’ prize may need to be called a draw.
32nd Troop’s Trekking Adventure
The 32nd Troop had a trekking adventure at the weekend with scouts from around the country. The four patrols of boys and girls took part in activities and scouting challenges at Auchingillan campsite and in the surrounding Campsie hills.
85th Cubs welcome the Radio Club
The radio club visited 85th Cubs for the second time to complete the communication with the remaining Cubs.
The Cubs had a great time learning about the radio and even the leaders and Explorers were persuaded to speak on the radio.
