Tent Assembly Blindfolded!

TTent Assembly Blindfolded 1

I must confess I never would have thought of this Scout challenge but I’m assured it’s easier than it sounds. Tent assembly blindfolded and using your feet with just one person directing you! Great to see Grandfather looking very relaxed observing this exercise. He must have plenty of faith in the Scout troop’s abilities. Go BBSG!

Bonanza of Activities at Cubs

Bowling Fun 2

It’s been a bonanza of activities at Cubs! I’ve been a bit remiss in my blog posting of late and in the blink of an eye so much has happened that I’m hard pressed relating them all.

So perhaps it’s just best that I relate a few of them…and let the pictures do the talking!

  • Going up into Scouts for two Cubs;
  • 10 Pin Bowling Fun;
  • ANZAC Day wreath making;
  • Cub Scout Leadership course; and
  • Cub Art Camp.

Look how creative and industrious they are! Our leaders should give themselves a big pat on the back!

Joeys Out and About

Joeys Big Day Out Fun 1

One of the fabulous things about being part of the Broken Bay Scout Group is that no matter what age you are there are just so many activities you can do. As you can see from this picture everyone can share the fun!

Joeys have been tremendously busy with their activities which included Joey Scout Big Day Out in Newcastle and Clean Up Australia Day here in our own locality.

The Joey Scout Big Day Out included a visit to Newcastle Museum, the Maritime Museum and the Honeysuckle area. The Museum hosted a show science show which included… wait for it…da, da, daaaaa the “Science of Slime”.

So wonderful to see the Joeys helping out, such as they did cleaning up McEvoy Oval, and learning about the culture and history of Newcastle our neighbouring city.

Australian Scout Medallion (ASM) for Greta

Greta Australian Scout Medallion Award

We’re sure Greta’s heard this many, many times – but a big B-R-A-V-O-O-O to her just the same! Greta was presented with her Australian Scout Medallion (ASM) Certificate in early April by Chief Commissioner Neville Tomkins OAM JP.

Greta was just one of 39 NSW recipients and she was awarded her medallion at the Broken Bay Scout Group 2016 Christmas celebrations.

For those who are wondering exactly what the ASM represents it is “the highest award in the Scout Section” and is considered “the pinnacle” of Scouting at this stage.

A Giant Milestone for Goliath

Goliath 10 Years Service

Have you encountered “Goliath”? If you look around the leaders of the Broken Bay Scout Group and searched for one of the taller individuals with a big cheeky smile then you’ve found him. Yes, he’s pictured on the right in the above image with “Kotick”.

Goliath in March clocked up 10 years’ service and a big heartfelt thanks goes from all of us within the Group.

Keep up the great work Goliath and leading by example to our Scout troop! We know you’re ready for anything!
