A brilliant start to the new term as we welcomed everyone back following the Summer break. I very much hope that our new friends, Connor, Ethan, James, Jayden, Jenson & Joel had a great time and will soon feel a part of the Pack and want to join us.
Tonight, to ease the Cubs back into Scouting, we enjoyed a games evening. Hockey, Crab football and snowballs!
The new cubs learnt about the origins of Scouting, why we shake hands with the left hand, why 7th Crawley has a black and red scarf, why the Leaders take their name from Rudyard Kipling’s story of “The Jungle Book” and lots more.
Each week the Cubs will be able to earn points for their six. This can be by winning games, being helpful, attending church parade, brining in stamps, coins and milk bottle tops (we collect these for charity) or for being the first six ready (and quiet) for an activity.
Points were awarded tonight as follows:
- Blue Six – 0
- Green Six – 0
- Orange Six – 0
- Red Six – 100
- White Six – 100
- Yellow Six – 150
I was very impressed with the number of older cubs who had completed their Promise Challenge Badge “challenge” over the Summer holidays and I hope to present these badges over the next couple of weeks. Some of the challenges chosen were very imaginative and I have heard that one or two of the cubs have decided to continue the challenge for the foreseeable future. Well done to you all!
We hope that the Cubs who were absent tonight enjoying a residential experience with their respective schools are having a good time and looking forward to joining us next week.
