Donation to Nepal

Hi all,

Tonight Wednesday Night Cubs will be donating their subs to Oxfam Ireland to help those most in need following the earthquake in Nepal.

Please ensure you have your subs and if you wish to donate further it would be greatly appreciated.

Wednesday 22nd April

Hi all,

We kicked off with footdrill and then went over Emergencies Stage 2.
We will be presenting the badges next week to the Cubs who have completed the necessary work.
If you haven’t completed it you have until next week to ensure you have the work done including the map and the first aid kit.

REMEMBER if you don’t do the work you don’t get the badge, if you’re not sure contact one of the Leaders

Our Cubs doing the CSA are progressing nicely under Cormacs care.

As the boating season is nearly upon us we spoke about wetsuits. The Cubs don’t need a wetsuit to go out on the water but if you are getting one
– Buy a wetsuit not a dry suit
– Buy a cheap one, they’ll only get this year out of it
– Buy a long sleeved long legged version
– Buy one that is nice and snug on, buying a loose one that they “will grow      into” is a complete waste of money and they might as well just wear their togs.

More info on the boating season in the coming weeks but if you do have any questions please feel free to ask one of the Leaders

We discussed our summer camp, we’re going to Ballinderry the weekend of 22nd 23rd 24th May.
This has yet to be confirmed along with price, times travel arrangements etc.

We had a game of groups finished and finished off with Grand Howl

Wednesday 15th April

Hi all,

Back after our Easter break but not an egg to be seen.
We kicked off with some footdrill and then we talked about the SPICES

After the SPICES we discussed the Scout Method.

We then split into two groups for badge work, one group for the CSA with Cormac and the other for Emergencies.
We had a look at the great maps drawn showing the route from the fire station to our houses and checked out some of the first aid kits.
We learned how to use our kneckers as slings.

For all doing the Emergencies badge please go over the requirements for Stages 1 and 2 HERE

We will be awarding the badges in the next couple of weeks

We finished off with Simon says and land, sea air then Grand Howl and off home we went.

Yours in Scouting
