A HUGE thanks also goes to Kooka for all the organising he did to bring it all together and all the other leaders and parents who worked in the back and foreground to make it happen.

We had a great time.

Boree Regatta – Oct ’08

We prepared really hard for this event and it paid off handsomely. We had to perform in many different areas likes fire lighting, building rafts, making ballista’s, knotting races, muffin eating races, canoing and kayaking. 1st Caringbah managed to win 7 of the 9 trophies available to the Scout Troop and the Cubs and Joey’s did us proud. Great FUN.

Another extremely successful Borree Regatta
