Last weekend the Cubs (and a few stray Beavers) went on the first walk of the year. We were very lucky that it was a lovely sunny day and we went from Killearn to Glengoyne and back again. The views were great, we did a lot of map reading and even found a old abandoned quarry along the way.
Here's a map of where we went, the whole walk was six and a half miles.
Last week Graeme came to show the Beavers (and later the Cubs) his birds of prey. We saw a couple of owls, a huge buzzard and a kestrel. It might have had something to do with Graeme telling everyone that the birds were a little peckish but this was the quietest session ever.
This term the Beavers are doing a lot of activities around the Commonwealth Games that come to Glasgow this year.
Scouts Scotland has a new special badge and we're telling them about all the activities we do. These activities count towards our "medals" and we can have a look at how we're doing on a medals table.
So far we've had a go at netball (with leaders standing on chairs instead of nets) and we even had team coaches and a half-time team talk. There will be lots of other sports after half term but we're already on the medal table in 4th place!
