We didn’t get a lot of photos, but overall it was a great weekend and we are sure everyone had a great time for the weekend. It was certainly a enjoyable activity to celebrate the 100 years of Cub Scouting.
Thanks a lot, it is greatly appreciated at this end
We managed to get a look at what they were doing, after we had swept out the dorm area of Seeonee Hills – the Cubs had already moved their gear out, so it was a good chance to do it while they were out and doing the final activities.
Once the sessions were over and done with, it was time for a quick check that everything was claimed and final flag parade, just as the parents were arriving. The certificates were given out and then everyone was free to go.
Today on the program, they covered practical skills (Flag rolling and breaking, Running a game, care of Uniform – this was run by our very own Akela, and Grand Howl). They also looked at – What is a Sixer / Second, What makes a Good Sixer / Second, and the promise and law...
In the afternoon, Working together looked at Circle Game (again, run by Akela and it certainly got the cubs thinking), Problem solving, and we wrapped the day up with a heap of skits and songs, which the cubs all enjoyed and worked really hard on.
The weather was also reasonable and certainly didn’t rain when we needed to be outside.
2016 marks 100 years since the 1st ANZAC Day was observed as a day of remembrance in Australia.
On my blog, my Akela has put up the Branch Commissioner – Cub Scout Challenge for 100 years of Cubbing. I hope you have a chance to look over the 1st two parts of what has been released and what we have been working on for 100 years of cubbing.
