Week Ending 06.04.13
Egg-citing time for 59th
The eggs-celent Scout Leaders, Katie and Pippa organised the evening and with the help of the groups’ other leaders, Easter eggs were hidden far and wide in the forest. For each plastic, paper, or painted egg found and returned to the leaders, a chocolate egg was given in return.
With the help of many parents and leaders the race was on to find as many eggs as possible. After all the eggs had been found, it was back to the hall for hot dogs, a drink and a well deserved warm up.
Gang Show Dundee Trip
Around 30 leaders from the Greenock Gang Show took a trip up to see the Dundee Gang Show.
The show was much enjoyed by all and included Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals, hits from the 80s and the best of Britpop.
Many thanks go to Dundee colleagues for a great show, their hospitality and to the Muirhead Scout Group for the first class hall accommodation.
Thanks also to the drivers for the weekend for getting the leaders there and back. However, on return from the trip to the Gang Show the 1st Gourock Minibus broke down at the Langbank Roundabout. The Group now fear it may have gone to Van Heaven unless something can be done.
If any Group is interested in a (large) repair project, or is aware of a minibus suitable for use contact Gordon McCready: ku.gro.stuocskcoruogts1null@lsg.
The Big Conversation
Scouts and Explorers from across the District were invited to join in the Big Conversation.
Explorers from Ardgowan and North Face Units and a Scout from the 32nd joined representatives from other uniformed organisations. Inverclyde MP Iain McKenzie held a forum to discuss issues affecting young people in Inverclyde. He commented that they were very talkative and it was great to have local Scouts involved. The young people very much enjoyed the event and found it very informative.
