Highland Games 1st May

Last night the "Scottish Fathers" organised a Highland Games evening. There was Welly throwing, Putting the turnip, tossing the caber and crossing the river. Each Lodge started on each base. After approx 10 mins a whistle was blown and each Lodge moved onto the next activity. When each Lodge had done each event the evening finished with a Tug of War. The Lodge with the highest points paired with the Lodge with the least points and they took on the other two Lodges in a best of three pulls. A fine evening contributed to a very enjoyable evening. Thanks to the "Scottish Fathers" including the piper for the evening.

 

 

To night the Beavers learnt about St George - Ann read them a story all about St Geoge and then the Beavers  completed a wordsearch and a maze.  

St George's Day Parade

Eleven Beavers turned up for the Parade, the remaking of the Promises and the afternoon of activities that followed. Some were not able to come because of First Communion commitments. Fortunately the afternoon stayed dry for most of the time so the young members of Scouting and Guiding were able to enjoy the activities that had been put on for them. It was unfortunate that the Leaders had to clear up in the rain.

For the first time in many, many years the Group gained the trophy for the smartest turn out of any Scout Group on Parade.

To night the Beavers were looking at experiments for their Experiment Badge.   They had four different things to  try

Separation of inks into constituent colours

Making paper planes and balloon rockets

Water ladder by symphonic action

Rotation generated by a column of water

This was an enjoyable evening and thanks to Andrew for setting up the experiments. 

To night we welcomed Sam to the Colony - we hope he enjoys his time with us.   Also apologies to William

for getting his name wrong last week.
