So tonight at osr scouts was railway safety, we might not pay much attention to it but we have 2 of the main lines in the south west cutting through the village and although Ross says trespass and other offences aren’t common in the south Gloucestershire area it’s always good to know about level crossings, Arcing, 3rd rails, speed limits, stopping distances and much much more.
The presentation went on longer than expected as the scouts had so many questions that needed answers.
Big thank you to Ross and well done to all the scouts for being so passionate about the subject and paying attention.
Remember Stop, look, listen - stay alive.
Tonight the OSR scout troop spent an evening at Vassells Park with Fred testing their navigation skills on his orienteering course.
The 6 teams took just over an hour running about the estate gathering the 10 names of past chief scouts and the year they started in the role.
Big ty to Fred the course was very well thought out. Gj to all the scouts for doing their very best. Overall winners with 1hr and 5mins was Hayden, Charlie and Ben.
This weekend was time again for the OSR Scouts to test themselves with a 23km 2 day expedition. This time starting at Woodhouse Park Scout Campsite and finishing at Berkeley power station with a nights camping at Oldbury on Severn. 18 members of the troop carrying everything they needed for 2 days on their backs completed the course and although tired and aching at the finish line had faces full of smiles at their achievements. Plus we dodged the rain.
Now it’s time to get home and relax in the Bath and let all the aches and pains soak away.
Congratulations all and ty to all the leaders for making it happen.
