Hi everyone and welcome back to what is going to be a fun filled term.
The Scouts have a patrol activity camp this weekend 14-16 May at Bottlebend, Held by Rohan Lauder's Patrol. Hope you all have fun and learn some new skills. Would also like to Welcome Josef & Tyler to scouts who have come from cubs hope they enjoy it as much as they did cubs. So far this term the scouts have been learing about how to erect and pack away a tent, Fire & Fuel, Navigation (held by Salty), some campcraft & how to set up for a camp. Wow they have been busy. Coming up they will be learning about mess kits & citizenship, plan & cook a meal from another culture, going to visit the RAAF museum and learning how to pack a rucksack.
The Anzac day march was held on the 25th April and Irymple had a great turn out and they all had fun, thanks to all those who attened and all well behaved.
Wednesday the 19th May is the Distric Roller Skating night (no scouts thursday night) where all the other scout groups in our distric get together and have fun and even some of the leaders get out on the rink and have a bit of a skate(which will bring back alot of memories) LOL.
The Distric Bike Hike is to be held on 18-20 june location and details yet to be advised but put that weekend on your calendar.
The cubs have also been very busy, Rick has invested 4 new cubs so hopefuly they will enjoy their time at Irymple. More details to be posted on what their weekly plan is for the term.
