Cubs: A Year in Review 2010

Extract from AGM, May 2010

Cubs this year has been as busy as ever with programmes working well and boomerang work completed. We competed in all of the district activities, coming first in the BMX and swimming carnival. We also took out both Iron Cub events.
Cubs are getting ready for the fast approaching Cuboree in January 2011. It should be a fantastic event as always. I have attended two Cuborees and a Jamboree and had a ball each time.

This year we have lost one of our leaders, Janine Dudfield aka Bagerra, to Hornsby Heights Cub Pack. I thank her for her e-mail skills and the experience she brought to our pack. Janine will be missed. Karen (Kar) has taken over e-mails now and I would like to thank her for that as everyone knows Akela
still doesn’t know what a computer is, but I am learning.

Our other two leaders, Paul (Rama) and Jeff (Chill) have now completed their BL3 which now has them finishing their training. Congratulations to them both. We also have a venturer, Lauren (Rikki) helping out each week. Thankyou Lauren.

Term 2 saw me passing the baton of Akela to one of the other leaders. After a lot of thought it was time for someone else to have a chance. Funny thing, I became Akela in March 2004 and the hall burned down in July 2004. I pass down the position when our new hall has started. I must hold the record for the most Cub pack meetings outside of our own hall. Yahoo. I will be staying on to help out for a while yet though.

I would like to thank all the parents and past leaders who have helped me through my time as Akela. I have really enjoyed it. Most of all I would like to thank all those Cubs throughout the years who have made it all worthwhile.  I feel very proud when they still call me Akela.

Yours in Cubbing

VENTOUT = Venturers + Scouts!!!

Wow! What an awesome weekend! The Scouts and Venturers from Mount Colah Mount Kuring Gai teamed up for an amazing weekend at Ventout located at Camp Kuring Gai on the Hawkesbury River.

Our buddies at Berowra helped out, and the Leaders and Venturers made sure that the Scouts had a great introduction into Venturing!

Although it was a very hot weekend (36 degrees!) there were plenty of water activities to keep us cool! Being towed behind the speed boat was the highlight for most Scouts and Vennies. The disco was a hit as well, although it was a little too loud. Those who wanted to relax in a quieter environment could chill out at the movies.

Ventout is one of the highlight of the Scouting calendar. I’m sure all of us will be doing it again same time next year!!!
