October was a special month for many members in the Group. Older Scouts moved up to; Explorers, Older Cubs were invested as Scouts; four Chief Scout Gold Awards were presented by Alastair Jardine, Assistant District Commissioner. Well done and best wishes to all!
A Team from Monday Cubs took part in Great Western District’s Annual CubTreasure Hunt, finding answers to almost one hundred clues within Kelvingrove Museum and in Kelvingrove Park. In the rain. They didn’t win the competition but really enjoyed the Challenge of it all!
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!

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.
