Group Leader

Quarter Master - Joeys - about 1 month ago (11 Sep 17)

Dear Magill Scout Group members,

As of Sunday 10th September, Heather has resigned as Group Leader (GL), due to constant ill Health and a heavy workload as a theatre nurse. She wanted to be at the hall meeting parents on a regular basis but due to work pressures cannot fulfill this role as well as she would like. I will take over as Leader in Charge (LIC) until January 31st when I retire as District Commissioner.

I do hope that someone will take on the role of GL and I would be happy to mentor them. Much of the work can be done at home, with visits to the sections from time to time. The outline of the GL’s role is enclosed below so anyone interested can see what is required. Please feel free to ring me to discuss this position.

Regards,
Kay Ealing
District Commissioner

Grey Wolf Hike

Emu - Cubs - about 1 month ago (26 Aug 17) Img_9161 Img_9178 Img_9194 Img_9217 Img_20170826_103909

On the 26/8/17 I had my Grey Wolf Hike, me(Patrick), Oscar, Jackson and Dingo saw a Koala on the ground just as we were about to start! We went on the second falls gorge hike, about three and a half kilometres later we saw a Kangaroo that was at least five feet tall and three metres in front of us(it was really cool)!

A while after that we took a wrong turn so we ended up going 375 ish metres higher than sea level. When we found the right track again there was a mound of rocks so we put one rock on each and i lead a scout’s own there.

When we had nearly finished the track was really slippery (everyone slipped over). When we finished the hike was two hours and fifteen minutes (six kilometres) we had some Skittles along the way and some timtams at the end as a celebration snack. I thought the hike went extremely well!
