Tonight at OSR’s the scouts were put through their paces cleaning, ironing and sewing so that their uniforms are kept in top condition. No excuses now for creases and missing buttons. We all know how to do it sometimes you just need an opportunity for another practice. The scouts did a great job, fab stitching and highly polished shoes. They all looked very smart at the end of the evening.
Talk tonight was about the WSJ 2019 in West Virginia, USA. Everything from selection process to run up to the jamboree, Big City experience and Hosted Hospitality. With Unit 70 video and finally the 2023 promotional video from the South Korean Organisers. Q and A’s and all the scouts were quiet so it must of been interesting. It’s important that the scouts know about these mass gatherings of scouts from all over the world.

So the osr troop returned after the Christmas break to some problem solving. The challenges were folding rug, 3 legged assault course, recover the bottle, planks and catapult.
The five patrols had a challenge each and a 5 minute time limit and rotated with time for hydration etc.
The Young Leaders all ran a base and did a great job. The final winners were Falcons. All points going to patrol points competition. Good job all.
So it’s been a busy Autumn term to go with a busy year for OSR scouts and the leaders took time to celebrate all that has been achieved this year with a Christmas meal at the Beaufort PH joined by Paul (GSL) who has been involved in many of the sessions the leaders had a lovely meal with a drink and crackers. Big well done to all the scouts that have achieved so much this year and a big thank you to the leaders for volunteering so freely of their time to run such a busy programme. Wishing you all a very good Christmas and New Years.
