32nd Beaver scouts flying high

12 lucky Beavers Scouts from the 32nd Colony, took off in style last weekend, spending an evening at Glasgow Airport on a VIP tour, exploring and learning all about aviation and how the airport operates.

The Beavers were shown the baggage areas, went through security, spoke to police officers, ground crew and others who work at the airport. A terrific evening was had by all. Many thanks to airport staff.

 

 

 

5th Greenock Scouts Preparation Hike for West Highland Way Expedition

Well done to Kate, Neive, Lucy and Andrew for walking 10 miles of the West Highland Way Auchtertyre Farm to Bridge of Orchy in very cold and blustery weather with the odd snow shower thrown in. Thanks to leaders Colin and Stuart for leading the hike.

 

 

 

 

 

85th have a chilly camp

Last weekend turned out to be an extra test for some Scouts from the 85th who were at Everton finishing off their Outdoor Challenge badges. After a long Saturday working hard developing their campsites in a cold breeze, the group woke on Sunday to find a blanket of snow around their tents and shelters.

 

 

 

 

That made striking camp more interesting as well, with some pegs no doubt lost under the snow. The low temperatures meant they were able to tick off the ‘camp at sub-zero temperatures’ option for the Zodiac Award, as well as capture some unusual photos for a patrol camp.
