ANZAC Day Eve 2016

As many of the people reading my blog will know, I am Australian. Tomorrow is a very important day in our history - ANZAC Day. ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corp. It is 101 years since the Australians and New Zealanders landed at Gallipoli in what was a defining battle and turning point in the military history of both our countries.

 2016 marks 100 years since the 1st ANZAC Day was observed as a day of remembrance in Australia.

Tonight, many scouting and guiding youth are standing vigils at many Memorials around the country, joined by Army and Air Force and Navy Cadets.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Salisbury Sports Festival

Today, City of Salisbury Council ran a Sports Festival, and it was a great day out. Taquim and I got to have our photos taken with the mascots from the Adelaide Strikers Big Bash T20 Cricket Team, Adelaide Football Club and Port Power Football Club.

It was a enjoyable day and we had a great time watching everyone enjoy themselves.

Amazing Race / Try Anything Once

Today, Taquim and I accompanied Akela and the Mawson Lakes Cub Pack on a activity in the city. It was called “The Amazing Race” and it was a good chance to get out and about to see the city with the Cub Scouts from Mawson Lakes Scout Group.

It was a good day out and allowed us to show Taquim some of the sights of the city, while doing a Scouting Activity.
