Christmas Trees – SELL OUT !

The annual Christmas Tree fundraiser was held on Saturday 9th December 2017.

Many Scout Groups hold a Christmas Tree sale on the same day each year.

The trees were beautiful this year and were completely sold out by lunch time.

We thank the local community for all the support for this important group fundraiser.

See you in 2018 !

New Hall Flagpole

Recently the group was donated a flag pole from the Berowra RSL. A flag has also been donated by Mr Matt Kean.

A project was launched to install the pole.

The new flag will be raised at the Group Christmas Party on December 15th 2017

New Driveway – NSW Community Building Grant

In early 2017 the Group was awarded a NSW Community Building Grant for the repair of the hall driveway.

In July a new asphalt driveway was installed. The new driveway will make access to the hall garage much safer.

The group would like to thank the support from local MP Mr Matt Kean who endorsed our submission.

Cubs attend the 2016 JOTA / JOTI

On Saturday the 15th of October the Cubs attended the 2016 JOTA / JOTI (Jamboree of the Air / Jamboree of the Internet).

The event was hosted by the Mt Colah Girl Guides and was really well attended across the day.

The Cubs talked to other Scouts and Guides using radios as Close as Asquith and as far away as Cairns. A game of Battleships use UHF radios fine tuned the radio protocols.

Low tech communications using a wire and 2 paper cups were also a hit.

Thanks to the Guide Leaders for organising a great day out.

Scouts – Easter Camp 2016

Each Easter, Scouts from Benowie District meet at Crosslands for the traditional Easter Camp.

Four days of fun and hard work keeping the campsites in perfect order. The camp is usually closed with a flour and water bomb fight – followed by a good wash (read water fight) in the river. There was perfect weather for the camp this year.

We had 3 new patrol leaders, new tents and many new faces – so we were very proud to finish in second place. Awesome work from our Scouts!

1stMCMK built a awesome entry gate to welcome visitors to the camp.

Bunnings Thornleigh – Fundraiser

Thank you to all our Families that braved the heat to help out at our Bunnings BBQ fundraiser on Sunday 14th February.

Despite the heat by 4pm most of the Sausages had been sold and a huge amount of icy cold drinks.

The group should raise around $850 from the event. The funds are being put towards camping equipment for the up coming Scout Easter Camp where the Scout Troop will attempt to defend their title as District Champions.
