So now there are NO face to face scouting activities the scouts have been set Badges at Home, a camping challenge in their own gardens, our first online meeting on Zoom with the 6 newest scouts being invested, JOTI weekend and The Lego Challenge plus cooking. We are trying to workout a troop Minecraft session ie Hunger Games
Kahoutek is a problem solving event with bases organised and run by members of the scout and guides of the Universities in Bristol. This is the fourth year in the new format based on the original competition named after a comet which was close to Earth on the day of the first competition. Today at Woodhouse Park 60 teams of scouts and guides took part in 20 bases. What a fab day and a great competition. All the OSR scouts had a wonderful time and really enjoyed taking part. Ty to the organisers.
Tonight saw the troop split again due to the large size of the osr scouts not many places can take us all at one go. So half attended Go Outdoors for a kit evening learning all about footwear, rucksacks and sleeping bags so the next time they go shopping with parents they can make an informed choice. This should make camps and our expedition more comfortable.
The other half were at osr learning or refreshing their first aid skills with our very own medical expert Nurse Jackie.
Both sessions went very well #skills for life.
Tonight at Bradley Stoke leisure centre swimming pool 1st Stoke Gifford osr scouts and Patchway Judo Club held their Annual Swimathon. Members of both clubs spent 60 minutes relay swimming achieving 178 lengths on average. Great fun evening with a bit of exercise, with certificates presented at the end and a quick photo of both club squads then home for a late dinner.
