So, on Saturday 2nd October 2021 160 Cub Scouts descended on Garners Field followed by 85 Beaver Scouts on Sunday 3rd October 2021 all in the name of FUN.
Mission Successful – even with the most horrible weather, the Cubs love it, pillow fighting in the rain is a sight to see. Both days we had happy, happy children. (some a bit wet…0
Behind every fun day there is a team of dedicated but now exhausted volunteers who have been planning, building, co-operating and running activities, setting up, maintaining and clearing up.
Nicky Clements, ADC Cub Scouts planned the Cubs day with help from Amanda Morgan, District Cub Leader and ran the day with her site team, Davis Clements, Ollie Morgan and Gary Thain providing the template for the Beaver Day. Thank you without your help the weekend would not have happened.
Thank you Gill Snedden who not only catered for volunteers on Saturday, with leftovers for Sunday but also an evening ‘BBQ’ for the Cubs,
Every Pack and every Colony provided an activity run by leaders and any volunteers they could muster – again planning and work before the event as well as setup and clear way. I know the 12th(Wrecclesham) were building the runway throughout the weekday evenings to get it ready in time.
Across the weekend we also had;
Tongham Hotshots running shooting
A raft of permit holders running Rafting
District Archery permit holders running Archery
The newly trained Tomahawk team teaching 6 to 10.5 year old to throw metal ‘angels’ and axes.
SASU members also supported bases, oversaw the assault course and generally filled in some gaps.
(Every activity has a Risk Assessment)
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Yours in Scouting
