Last evening the OSR scouts brush up on some basic map reading including orientation of maps and bearings plus yearly variation. Plus we’ve had the results of Kahoutek online which we won the Kahoutek trophy coming second by 1 point to a Portuguese troop also bird count for RSPB and star count which osr scouts have previously taken part in. Good job OSR scouts. Whoop whoop
Day Two saw all the participants and leaders turn up raring to go. Some sore feet but a positive attitude. Kit checked and rucksacks to make sure they had everything they had yesterday!
Off they went and CP 1 was at a cafe stop so be rude not to indulge. Weather wise it was a little chilly but the sun broke through just before lunchtime and what a lovely day for another walk. The scouts did fab. Big well done to all and ty to leaders/ YLs for all your help.
So this has been a long time in the planning and well done to to Emily, Dan, Alfie and Maya for altering our normal route due to covid restrictions meaning they have to finish each day back at OSR. So Day One start at Aust services and walked through Olveston, tockington, Almondsbury and Bradley Stoke. Plus the team finished ahead of time so plenty of time to get their individual tents up and get dinner on. Good first day walking. Well done all.
Ever since I joined 1st Stoke Gifford osr scouts there’s been a single meteorologist activity badge in the badge box. So tonight we were joined on zoom by Abby a senior operational met officer who has travelled the world helping the military aviators to keep ahead of the weather. The scouts were taken through all the requirements and tested to see what they had retained. Now the hard work, we’ve got a weather station to make and a 2 weeks weather chart to fill out. Big TY to Abby and good job by the scouts. We are going to test our knowledge with a weather Kahoot quiz.
