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.

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!!!
