Another great achievement for the troop, coming 3rd in the National Finals of the Camping Competition. Well done to all involved, with a huge amount of effort given in difficult conditions.
Summer camp at the Auchengillan jamboree was enjoyed by all the scouts and explorers who attended with some describing it as the best camp ever. It was wet, it was sunny, it was misty so a typical Scottish summer. AJ17 had a very international make-up, with scouting friends from Weurt, near Nijmegen, Netherlands, sharing our camp. Amongst other things the scouts enjoyed an outdoor pool party, a foam party and a paint party. Photos are on our flickr group, with more to follow.
Well done to our camping competition team who won the Auchengillan South and West Zonal camping competition and have automatically qualified for the national finals in September.
Cubs had a great weekend at Dalguise, May 2017.
183rd Scouts tested out the new bothy at Auchengillan this weekend. These bothies will be a great resource for patrol camps, expedition challanges and other small group activities.
Once again, the 183rd Scouts hold the Camping Competition trophy for the Great Western district. Well done to everyone who put themselves forward, the next challenge is the zonal competition!
We have now held the trophy continuously for 20 years – here is the team photo from 1997 – see anyone you know?
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers all joined together for a good cause for Comic Relief Night 2017.
Cubs (and a few Scouts) once again served the local community at Christmas and raised money for charity by distributing cards in the local area.
