The scouts spent two nights at Fordell Firs. They took part lots of activities including abseiling, caving and king-swing.
Well done to our camping competition team who came 6th in Scotland and 1st in the Clyde region, making them regional champions!

2018 Great Western district winners
Once again we have had a cub claim his Silver Chief Scout’s Award, the highest badge that is awarded for cubs. The district commissioner visited the troop on Tuesday 5th June to present the Chief Scout Silver award.
This is a very difficult award to achieve and shows some real dedication. Previous recipients of the Chief Scouts Award (all levels) can be seen in our Chief Scouts Gallery.
Congratulations to our six new Scouts who were invested this week.
Our 5-a-side team worked hard this year in the District competition. Despite not winning outright, the team did very well.
We are delighted to report the announcement, in the St. Georges Day roll of honour for 2018, that the Chief Scout has recognised the hard work that Moira and Fiona have done for scouting by awarding them the Silver Acorn.
Scouts had a great time in the snow during their meeting, making snowmen, a snow-pig (and a few snowballs). This was followed up with a hot drink and some indoor activities to dry off.
