Balfron Troop were very well represented at the Remembrance Sunday service this year. There were many Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, one of whom laid a wreath on the Troop's behalf.
This October the Scouts headed over to the Emirates Arena in Glasgow's East End to take part in our very own Olympic Games! With 400m relays to 100m sprints and even the odd long jump or two the Scouts all put in a fantastic effort and have all completed the activity section of their Athletics Activity Badge. Well done boys!
Last week we went to visit the fire station. All the firemen were there and showed us around the engine and all the equipment. The huge alien fireman suit was great but our favourite was getting to use the hoses...and getting the nearby Beavers a little bit wet.
Last weekend a small group of Scouts went for a hike, taking along a Beaver and a Cub. We walked from Killearn across the moor and up Dumgoyne. With some encouragement from the Scouts, everyone got to the top where there was a great view to the mountains to the north.
It was hard work getting up the hill but much easier getting down...
The Scouts also did a great job map reading. They led us all the way and had a few tricky decisions to make where they used their compass.
Everyone is keen to tackle some bigger hills...those Munroes to the north looked very inviting.
A few weeks ago the Scouts and Cubs went on a joint camp to Meggernie. It was a fantastic weekend with loads of activities and we learnt some very useful new skills.
We had the campsite all to ourselves and the views were amazing. Here are a few photos of the camp and the photos of the activities we did are in the news items below.
