Wednesday 10th June

Hi all,

Photos will be added shortly so please check back.

What a beautiful night to spend on the water, 21 Cubs out and more importantly 21 Cubs back in.
For those who hadn’t been on the water with us before, the cold water was a bit of a shock even though the sun was shining.
We also took the Canadian out and this went towards the CSA.

It was also a sad night for us in Wednesday Night Cubs as we said goodbye to Karen.
Karen has been a Leader with us for more than 30 years and she has decided to step down for some well earned rest.
She will be greatly missed by Cubs, Parents and fellow Leaders.
We wish her well and hope we’ll see her again in the future.

We also said farewell to Niamh who is moving with her family to England during the summer. We wish her well for her travels.

This was our last night until after the summer holidays
All the Leaders wish our Cubs and families a great summer, enjoy and take care of yourselves.

Please keep an eye on the site for our start back date, it will probably be the week after the schools start back.

Finally this is our 200th post on our site (“,)

Cubs on the water

Hi all,

We are hoping to go canoeing, weather permitting this Wednesday.  Cubs will meet at 6.50pm ready to go on the water.
Please ensure they have a towel old runners they can wear in the water and worm clothes for afterwards.

After over 30 years as a Leader in 5th Wicklow Karen has decided to hang up her woggle and retire.  Wednesday night will be her last night in Cubs.
We will finish at the later time of 8.30pm so that we can gather in the den for a final farewell.
All mums and dads are of course invited to join us to bid Karen a very fond goodbye.

Wednesday 3rd June

Hi all,

As always we kicked off the meeting with some footdrill. We upped the difficulty tonight, falling into two lines then numbering off in 2s and then falling in two deep at the same time. It was pretty tricky but we got there.

Kieran was good enough to go through the life jackets with us, and we all got a chance to try one on, Cormac did some work with the Chief Scouters.  Ao had a chat with them about promoting sixers and seconders when we come back in September, and what standard we expect from them, (full uniform, good attendance, prompt at handing in work, not having to be spoken to etc), then we played a mad game of bucketball with about a dozen balloons!

We did Grand Howl and headed home
