St. George’s Day 2020 was different than other years, during shut down there’s no church parade or day of activities as in previous years. So the County Commissioner Graham Brant has asked for scouters young and older to renew their scout promise on their doorsteps before the 8pm clap for Heros. The OSRs scouts in Stoke Gifford did just that. Good job all.
Tonight at OSR was Brunel District Quiz with teams from around the district. Ten rounds on everything from scouting, music, logos and seen from space to name a few. Half time break with biscuits and drinks provided by the hosts.
OSR troop entered a team of 4 who had a fab time representing the troop and racking their brains for the answers. Great job by all and well done to the scouts. It wasn’t a top 3 finish but it gives us something to aim for next year!
The Avon County Scouts Cooking Comp is early in February 2020 and with the OSR Scout troop wanting to enter again it was time to test our culinary skills. The PLs had to decide on a 3 course menu on the theme of the Olympics all under a budget of £20 and shop for the ingredients. Tonight they explained their menu to their patrols and then to work!! So they had a double burner, a frying pan, Dixie and all the other bits and bobs. The smells were great, fab teamwork and the final results looks amazing. The judges liked lots of the different elements and now to pick a team to represent the troop. Good job all. Clearing up took a while!
So tonight the old school rooms troop are split again with half attending the Warhammer shop to do some model making and find their creative side. This is an activity where the scout Association have paired up with the well known gaming store to offer a glimpse of what’s on offer and not only how to make them and paint them but also how the game is played. Some of the scouts already enjoy this hobby and was a chance for them to show some of their knowledge.
Big TY to Geraint and the warhammer store for all their help. The scouts got to keep the space marine models they put together and were invited to come back and paint them under the guidance of the experts.
