Carp Removal Competition

Today, some of the Joeys, Cubs and their families (with Akela and I of course!) went and participated in the Carp Removal! – fishing Competition at North Lakes Golf Course in Playford North. It was a good chance for the cubs and joeys to do some fishing and environmental stuff as well.

The event was a joint venture between Playford Council and a fishing club, which surprising was the same one that the leader from St Kilda is with. He was there and quite happy to chat with all.

Water Mellons

This year, Akela has seeds (again) to plant. This time round, they are Watermellons. We're not sure how they are going to go this year. But we are hopeful that we will e able to actually see some furit of our labour.

Anyhow, today Wilbur planted his seeds with Rufus watching over him to make sure they all got done before Rufus heads off on his over seas holiday

Bear Grylls and Market Promotion

This is a clip  Bear Grylls made, promoting Scouting in Australia. Bear Grylls, as everyone knows, is well known for his TV Show. But he also has been a member of Scouting in England and is a very strong supporter of scouting. So, we are pleased to be able to show this clip here.

On another note, Akela and Wilbur are heading to a market to do some promotional stuff for the Scout Group on Saturday, so that should be a enjoyable day. It will be interesting to see if we get any people asking about Scouting and wanting more information (which is obviously the aim of being there!)

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

October Long Weekend - Slowdown Football game

Today, Wilbur went to watch the SA vs Vic Slowdown at Adelaide Oval. The game is a fun game for charity (the Little Heros Foundation) which raises money for sick children at the Women and Childrens Hospital here in Adelaide. The game is generally held on the October  long weekend and charge is $5 per person to get in. The teams are generally the two local AFL teams (Adelaide Crows and Port Power) but on occasions, has been a interstate affair (SA vs Vic) and where previous (retired) AFL players pull on the respective colours and play a game of football.  It always attracts a crowd and the money goes to a good charity. The foundation, Little Heroes Foundation can be found at the following link
This year, with the Victorians on board (the last time was 2004), it was a joint fundraiser between the Little Heroes Foundation (set up by Chris McDermott and Tony McGuiness) and Reach Foundation (a youth charity set up Jim Styles – a former Melbourne player and current president who is battling cancer).
It was a good day, and yes – South Australia won, by a point. Money was raised for a charity and it was just a generally relaxing way to spend a labor day long weekend.
