Thursday 20th and Ready Steady Cook – Saturday 22nd November

Hi all,

We have a few updates before Thursday’s meeting:

Interpatrol CompetitionCurlew Uniform

Thanks again to our guest inspector, Sheila form the order of Malta. Sheila was very impressed with the standard of uniform. We will have guest inspectors for the next few weeks so…. so keep up the high standard!

A full uniform includes Scout Shirt, Neckerchief and Woggle (if you are invested), Scout Belt, Scout Trousers, Dark Socks, Black Shoes or Hiking Boots. A lot of Scouts were recently awarded with badges, these must be sewn onto your shirt. You worked hard to earn them so wear them with pride. You will also receive Troop and Patrol badges which must be sewn onto the top of your right sleeve as shown in the picture (The red Raven badge goes above your Patrol badge)

Keep an eye on here for any updates and leaderboard.

Ready Steady Cook

We will be holding our Annual Ready Steady Cook competition this Saturday 22nd November. Your Patrol must work together to build and maintain your fire and prepare a tasty 3 course meal. We will kick off at 11am and hope to be finished by 3pm. Make sure to bring rain gear and a lunch for yourself (remember your challenge is to cook a meal for 1 person). The competition will be fierce, with your Patrol being judged on :

  • Patrol members presentScout cooking
  • Action Plan (submitted before starting)
  • Teamwork
  • Pioneering
  • Fire Maintenance
  • Safety (trip hazards, bucket of water)
  • Hygiene
  • Presentation
  • Taste
  • Wash up
  • BONUS points


Philae and Rosetta

As you know, the theme of our Interpatrol Competition is Communications…. and as we discussed the robot Philae landed on a comet about 450 million km (or three times the distance to the sun) last week and he was still able to communicate with us. Check out the videos below to find out about his and Rosetta’s 10 year journey through space

Tying in with our Communications theme, each Scout was set the challenge of learning how to spell their name using sign language. Lets hope you can all spell your name!

    • Hi Close, yes you can bring your own food. We will give your patrol a budget of €10 to buy a 3 course meal for 1 person….. This is the meal that will be judged. You can bring your own lunch to eat on Saturday
