People's Choice Community Lottery

Chairperson - Parents - about 1 month ago (30 Apr 19)

Once again this year we are taking part in the People’s Choice Community lottery. Run by the People’s Choice Credit Union, all proceeds from all tickets we sell are returned to our group so it’s an easy and lucrative way to fund raise – the only cost is your time to sell a few tickets to friends and family members who wish to help support the scouting activities of our children.

Heidi Gadsby from our committee will again be managing the distribution of paper ticket books to each family, once these are available in May. However in the meantime, we can get started by selling online tickets. It couldn’t be simpler – just share the link below to our group’s ticket page with whoever you know (email to family and friends, share on the socials with your networks, etc) and they can purchase tickets no matter where they are (you don’t need to see them personally with a book in hand!).

https://communitylottery.peopleschoicecu.com.au…

There are 115 prizes, including 3 Toyota cars. Tickets are just $2 each.

This year, we will put all money raised towards replacing our ageing tents, which we’ve had terrific use out of for more than 10 years, but some are becoming harder to repair each time damage occurs.
Please support our group efforts in this lottery by spreading the word about the online tickets, and by helping Heidi to move as many ticket books as we can before it closes in August.

Scout camp cooking nights

Eagle - Scouts - 3 months ago (30 Mar 19)

This year the scouts are planning to go to the Cohen Cup “Camp cooking” competition/camp, in Term 2. The dates are May 25 & 26, so mark these in your diary now.

We’ve been doing preparation this term.

The first preparation night was a joint cooking night with Pembroke scouts. Last time we did this, it was ‘us against them’, which was fun. This time we formed mixed teams from each group and that was also a great success.

Photos from that night are here:

The second preparation night was practice for the themed cooking – Mexican. This was not a competition – the scouts were practicing and learning to get the recipes for each course worked out.

Firefighter Safety Visit

Emu - Joeys - 7 months ago (18 Nov 18) 20181113_220158 20181113_220044

On Tuesday the 13th, Joeys and Cubs were visited by the MFS, who did a fire safety demonstration. It was a great night, with lots of useful tips learned by all. Firefighter Phil did a wonderful job teaching the youth about a variety of home safety issues, including fire alarms, fire safety in the home and how to escape from a house fire.

Scouts had a great evening repairing/renovating the “Hungry Hippo” boards.

Thanks to the excellent support from Adult helpers who stepped up: Dave, Rhys, Yvonne, Noel: couldn’t have done it without you!

We’ll have to get photos of the actual game some time soon, but we are usually all to busy laughing to take photos!
