Young Leader Training

Great night last night despite the heat. We romped through Young Leader Module A training and everyone worked through the exercises. All the Explorers have now been through Mod A.

Everyone who was issued their Orange Cards and will go through the Young Leader missions in the coming months.

Once we competed Mod A we switched to menu and meal planning for our Summer Camp and Water Camp in September. We were a little challenged as our Danish friends want to eat traditional English food at camp in the summer.

I am not sure if the curry, chilli, spaghetti bol, and BBQ that the Explorers wanted constitutes British food. So we encroached them to think more along the lines of Yorkshire Pudding, Shepherds Pie, Eatan Mess and other British culinary delights.

Heat wave

Despite the heatwave on Sunday our Explorers spent another full day out walking. Up at 07:00 packing tents into rucksacks and making breakfast. The routes were challenging.

Jungle like growth clogged paths making them impassable. The sun blazed down all day and the Explorers slogged on. They made a few navigation errors but corrected most of them.

We are very proud of the way they conducted themselves and that they did not give up and stuck with it until the end. Despite being shattered they all still looked good at the end of the walk.

More help needed

A big thank to the parents who have started to sign up as helpers and assistant leaders within the Pegasus and our partner Scout Group. The enrolment process has started and you should be contacted soon.

We can always do with extra help so if anyone wants to be a helper or leader at either Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Explorer Scouts please contact us.

An empty space

Feeling more than a little sad today. I popped down to the site of our old scout hut. It’s just a big flattened empty space waiting for the builders to build yet more houses on.

I truly hope the new community build arrives soon and is as good as it sounds on paper. But it’s not going to be the same not having a permanent building of our own.

Oh well when I win the lottery or find a rich sponsor ……………..
