AJ2013 was a huge success!!  ... don't believe us? ... then search for "AJ2013" on You Tube and judge for yourself!

February/March 2013 Update

What a first few weeks it's been! Things are changing so quickly an earlier update would be hopelessly out of date as soon as I wrote it!

What a great night we had to celebrate Founders Day on Wednesday 20th Feb - wasn't it fantastic to see the 5 section flags under the national flag blow in the gentle breezes of Oberon Primary school oval!  The 60 or so Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturer and Rovers all had a great time.  The fantastic activities were greatly enjoyed by all despite that gentle breeze!

Possible new sections

We have been in a waiting list situation for Joeys and Cubs nearly two years now and have repeatedly tried to clear these by forming a 2nd Cub Pack and lately a 2nd Joey Mob.

Through a combination of our Monday Night tenant leaving and calling a meeting on Monday 11th February, we have gained several potential new Joey and Cub leaders for these new sections.

Our plan is to run:

- Cub Pack B:  6.30 to 8 pm Mondays
- Joey Mob B: 5.30pm to 645pm Tuesdays

These will start with a 4 week trial run from Monday 4th and Thursday 7th March for the last four weeks of Term 1.  The trial will run with perhaps 12 cubs and 10 Joeys, including the potential leaders’ children, so that we all get to know each other and learn what scouting is and how much fun it can be for adults as well.  And thanks in advance to our existing leaders who may put in that extra night over a lot of weeks in Term 1 and 2 while the new leaders do their training.

All went really well on their first trial nights, Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th March.
