Our term 1 program included a wide game with the Cubs on Tuesday 2 April. However, due to the Easter camp and too much on, we have decided to withdraw from this. We will organise a joint activity with Cubs next Term.
Our next meeting is Friday 5 April – Peter and Raphie are organising a night hike for the Troop.
The more experienced Leaders group was beaten by the Scouts group in a closely fought competition on Friday night.
The Leaders won with their main course of Butter Chicken, which was perfectly cooked (though some might say it didn’t follow the classic receipt by being over spices).
While the Leaders desert of chocolate truffles was first class, it was beaten by the sheer quality and presentation of the Scouts piklets with syrup and fruit.
Unfortunately the weather is looking awful for Friday evening – and we will probably have to cancel the twilight bike ride. However, we can defer it to next week – and bring forward the raft building practice in the hall.
That was a good call as it was raining and windy by 8pm!
The Cub camp has been cancelled this weekend due to rain and high winds.
Well scouts is back for 2013, as usual on a Friday night from 7:30 till 9:30.
First Gordon Scout Group sadly notes the passing of Mark Raftery, enthusiastic Scout Dad of Annabel and former committee member. Mark died peacefully on Sunday January 22nd after a prolonged illness. All of our thoughts are with Annabel and her family.
Scout meetings will resume on Friday 3rd February at 7:30pm.
Cubs meetings will resume on Monday 6th February at 7:00pm.
First Gordon Scouts are collecting X-rays for recycling. We have a large wheelie bin in the hall and will happily take any size and any quantity of x-rays from you, your friends and relatives. Thex-ray films are sent to a firm in Sydney that recycles the plastic and recovers the silver and other chemicals from the films. The same applies to old film negatives so if you have any of these then feel free to drop them under the door of the hall.
For bulk deliveries or pickups please contact our Group Leader at email@example.com.
For this service and for helping the environment the Scouts earn a small fee of approximately $35.00 per 100kg of film.

If you are concerned about privacy issues then you can or we will simply cut any names off anyx-rays before they are deposited in the wheelie bin.
