Maintenance of kit at Invertrossachs

Five members of the water activities team recently spent a morning at Invertrossachs checking out all the canoes, kayaks and personal floatation devices (or PFDs - the new name for buoyancy aids and lifejackets). This involved checking the buoyancy bags, fittings and bungs of all the boats, and making a visual check of every PFD for damage to buckles, webbing and signs of wear and tear. Thanks to these guys we are now good to go!

 

Over 150 scouts supported by 50 leaders from across Stirling, Dunblane, Bridge of Allan and Falkirk, took part in a giant outdoor event based on the Monopoly board game.

The scouts were all in patrols (teams) and there were bases throughout the Stirling from the Thistle Centre to the Castle. The scouts could choose which base to visit and take part in the activity and be awarded Scoutopoly money. The patrol with the most Scoutopoly money being the winner.

Scoutopoly (Monopoly) money was awarded for completing the challenges, for teamwork and entertainment.

The bases were all different, some used scouting skills such as using stoves or pitching tents, others concentrated on teaching about Stirling’s history using quizzes or photographs and some were for fun like Giant Kerplunk, or movie charades.

Everyone finished at the Kings Park, where the scouts and leaders all relaxed with a BBQ, which was supplied by the Scout Active Support Unit. This is a group of ex members who help us at various special events. While burgers were consumed the results were analysed. The scouts and leaders all had fun in the spring sunshine and the winning Patrol was from Stirling (7th Beechwood troop), while 2nd and 3rd places patrols went to Falkirk based groups.

 

 

I am pleased to be able to share that these Young People from our District have been selected following a selection weekend to be part of the Forth Region Unit representing Scotland at the next World Jamboree in 2019 in the USA. in addition, one of our leaders Nick Cowie has also been selected as one of the Unit Leaders with the Forth Region Unit 
 
We will be looking to support them in fund raising, recognition and publicity, as well as giving them opportunities before and after WSJ to share their experience with others
