Although if you’ve been looking here recently, you wouldn’t have thought so!
The last couple of weeks have had me smoothing a lot of ruffled feathers in the Group and sorting a big problem out due to some ‘misunderstandings’ with another party. I’m sure you can tell that I’m being awfully vague here as it’s not something I can really go into, but needless to say a lot of evenings the other week were spent in front of the keyboard and on the telephone! It’s all sorted now and everyone’s happy. Oh the joys of being a Group Scout Leader!
Then this last weekend I’ve been out camping with the Cubs. We had a great time and the weather was actually nice, after the rain on the Friday evening of course!
One of the things the Cubs did, which I’ve never actually seen before, was crate stacking. This involves standing on crates, adding more to the stack and trying to stand on as many crates and go as high as possible without falling off. Of course, the Cubs are attached to ropes so that when they do fall off, they don’t just hit the ground!
Two of our Cubs actually broke the site record for the most crates stacked by Cubs!
Here is a little video I made from the photos I took.
At one point our Young Leader who is attending the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden was going to come out, but unfortunately, he wasn’t able to make it. However, as the camp site has three flagpoles, in honour of the Jamboree, I put up a Swedish flag.
I have to say that I’m somewhat jealous of those attending the Jamboree, but I’m sure they’ll all have a brilliant time!
