Cubs Billy Kart Derby – Sep 10

Sunday 12th September saw lots of action at Miranda Park as 1st Caringbah Cubs battled other cub groups in our region in a Billy Cart Derby! We were represented by a wide variety of billy carts and lots of enthusiastic cubs.

The end result was lots of fun as well as third prize overall, and first place for the best looking billy cart to Anton. Well done Cubs, and thanks to our Leaders who helped build the billy carts and cheer us on!

Scout Group Fair – Aug 10

1st Caringbah Scout Group enjoyed holding an excellent scout fair for the local community, with a LOT of FUN had by all. The parents committee and especially Cathy Beauchamp did an amazing job and untold hours preparing everything for the day. BRAVO to all the cubs, scouts and venturers who worked hard setting up, walking the ponies, selling raffle tickets, face painting and packing everything up. The good news is we raised a substantial amount again topping last years figure. Thanks to all the local businesses that supported the fair in 2010 and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Again we are always looking for parents to join our parents committee to help keep this wonderful group run successfully. Please contact our Parents Committee President Laura Power on lpower26a@gmail.com to assist in anyway you can

Cub Grey Wolf Hike – Jul 10

One of our Cubs William B led 4 of his fellow cubs on a Grey Wolf hike that he planned and executed on his own. Here is his report.

On Sunday 1 August 2010 I did my Grey Wolf bushwalk. I took Snowy and Wallaby (leaders), Callum, Eva, William H and Timothy. We walked the Curra Moors Track in the Royal National Park. I checked that everyone had their food, water, first aid kit and a jacket. We started the walk from Sir Bertram Stevens Drive and walked to the coast. The walk was 6 ½ km and took just over two hours. Luckily it was a nice, sunny day, but the track was pretty wet from the rain we have had. We walked downhill through bush to start off with, across a small creek, then up onto Curra Moors, where there was a wide track and it was very flat. We saw lots of grass trees, wattles, bottlebrush and other flowers. When we came to a fork in the track I used my compass and a map to check which direction to go in, and we also used Snowy’s GPS. We had lunch at a lookout at the top of Garie Headland before walking back. I used my first aid kit once for a cut finger.

WELL DONE WILLIAM.

Cub Investiture – Jun 10

5 new Cubs were invested to the cub pack on Tuesday June 8th 2010

Cubs/Joeys at Region Camp – Jun 10

The cubs and joeys enjoyed their time at the Scouts and Venturers Region Camp

Region Camp – Jun 2010

 

Over 40 1st Caringbah Venturers, Scouts, Cubs and Joeys headed down to Camp Coutts for 3 nights and a long weekend of brilliant sunshine, clear blue skies, sub zero nights, BIG camp fire flare ups, singing around the campfire, disco’s, movies, flying foxes and loads of other FUN activities.

The Venturers worked hard directing traffic, erecting the flying fox (took 1.5 days), then harnessing up the scouts for the flying fox and then some fun social time with the other 40 Vegies and our own troop. Mitch starred as the unit clown (check out the pics) whilst some downright hilarious moments were enjoyed with some impeccable timing by one leader who seemed to walk in at the most inopportune of moments J.

The APL’s did a sterling job within the Scout Troop leading their patrols through the weekend, great practice ready for when the PL’s head up to Venturers in the very near future.  Emerson, Ronan and Stephen kept morale very high collecting a big pile of fine needle branches to create a spectacular flare up which kept us lovely and toasty.  As always, Emilie led the singing with the most gorgeous voice.

Congratulations to Oscar, Harrison and Nick who entered the World Scout Association with an investiture on the Sunday.

The disco was a HUGE hit with some enthusiastic dancing (the photos do all the talking) and some pole tricks never seen before – Hamish was the king of this with his amazing horizontal hang trick.

Megs, Laura and Thomas became famous on one of the activities with a rendition of the “moose song” that the leaders of the activity said was the best song they had seen all weekend.  We want to see this one at the next campfire guys.

Cam B enjoyed his 14th Birthday and Venturers very kindly wheelbarrowed a 150kg rock to him as a gift and Darce gave him a tiara and other appropriate gifts J Wow how lucky is that boy.

BRAVO to those scouts who managed to do sooooo much camp craft badge work– Megs, Laura, Thomas, Caitlan and Kai.  Trust us, those skills will help you later in life – BRAVO

And thanks go to all the leaders who worked their butts off day, night and in preparation for this camp – BRAVO.  (As always, we would like a parent from every non leader family to join the parent committee to help keeping this all happening please – the return on our investment in time is very worthwhile.)

Well Region Camp was an excellent socialising camp and the next major Scout troop camp is the BIG ONE, State Rally, so get those activity application forms in fast.  Happy Days J

Cubs – Flying Experience – Nov 09

Cubs at the Camden Air Activity Centre had an amazing experience on Saturday 21st November!


 
We had 13 cubs enjoy the feeling of flight in a 4 seater Cessna aircraft, flying over Warragamba Dam and along the edge of the Blue Mountains.
 All the pilots have earned their licence through the Scouts Air Activity Centre, which our Cubs are able to achieve if they wish in the future!
They were all given a tour of the Camden Airfield , built their own model aircraft to fly and watched the water bombing helicopter practice it’s manoeuvre.
Great opportunity for ours Cubs and a great day was enjoyed by all!
Thank you to all the Air Activity Leaders’ who assisted our Cubs on the day!
