Our patrols dusted off our Icelandic tents after a very long time in storage!
A lot of excitement on Thursday as we invested a whopping 17 new Scouts and 3 leaders into the Raven Troop. Each and every Scout did really well and has already made a very positive impact on our Troop in the few months since they have joined…..as have our newer leaders!!! (all past members of the Raven Troop). 4 of our Scouts also received their Cub Chief Scout Award and 2 Scouts received their Special Interest Awards. Well done all! The future is looking bright!!!
Bruschetta was the dish of the day this week. Patrols had to work together to follow an 18 step recipe – 1 Scout at a time, in a relay format. Team work certainly made the dream work with delicious and nutritious results!!
We had a “flipping” awesome time frying up some tasty pancakes last week….deeeeeelish!
As discussed at last night’s meeting, we will be meeting at the Den at 9:45 am tomorrow morning (Saturday 4th December). We will be heading down to Wicklow and climbing Maulin (570 metres).
