Points competition – November 2018

At the end of October it was once again the Yellows who were our best six. Points this month include those earned at Remembrance Sunday.

Despite our best efforts to level up the numbers in each six the poor old Reds have suffered from some unexpected departures and now only have 4 members. With most of the points this month coming from inspection and attendance this hits them hard, knocking them into third place. With our reduced numbers we sadly closed Green six this month.

Our Cub of the Month was James who made this his second consecutive month by completing some challenge badges at home.

Points competition – October 2018

In October the competition between Yellows and Blues continued but this time the Yellows ended up in the lead.

Our Cub of the Month was James who was one of three Cubs who became a Sixer or Seconder in the month. On top of his regular attendance and good inspection points this earned him +25 points which pushed him into the lead.

Sadly October is the last month that the Greens will be taking part in the competition. With falling numbers ahead of the change of leaders at Christmas we have closed down the Greens and just have three sixes now.

Report: Summer Camp 2018

For Summer Camp 2018 we returned to Downe Scout Activity Centre at Biggin Hill in Kent. After the long hot summer we didn’t have a completely dry week but still did well with the weather

Camp ran from Sunday 12 to Saturday 18 August with our mini-campers leaving us on the Wednesday. It was a level 3 camp as we slept in tents.

With Charles Darwin having lived nearby we found out about him and his life and also visited his house during the week.

Our guest list was:

  • Full week (9): Lucybelle, Thomas, Adam, Martha, Violet, Izzy, Jasmine, Joshua
  • Mini camp (3): James, Tommy and Luke
  • Adults camping (5) – Jacala, Marian, Kaa, Tabaqui, Helen and Luke (scout helper)

Points competition – September 2018

At the end of September it was once again the Blues who were our best six.

In addition to the points earned at our pack meetings this month we  included points gained through the completion of badges at our Spy School weekend camp.

Our Cub of the Month was Martha who completed her Chief Scout’s Silver Award during the month. It is the highest award in Cubs so well done to her.

Points competition – July & August 2018

For the last 6 months the Six of the Month has alternated between the Yellows and the Greens. At the end of July it was almost the Yellows again but the Blues surged ahead for a convincing win.

In addition to the points earned at our pack meetings in July we  included points gained through the completion of badges at Summer Camp. Unfortunately nobody from Reds came to camp and so this left them rather well behind in fourth place.

Our Cub of the Month was Izzy who did well for badges at Summer Camp, including completing her Adventure challenge.
