Bonfire night

On Monday we had a fantastic Troop Bonfire Night. The Scouts had helped organise the night as part of their badge work and they seemed to get all the essential ingredients: a huge bonfire, lots of fireworks, and hot dogs. 

The Beavers had also made three guys for the bonfire and everyone was very impressed at how flammable they were! They were equally impressed by the bonfire (thanks to the Scouts and Tim Trafford for wood collection), the hot dogs and hot chocolate (thanks to the Chefs/Cub leaders) and the fireworks (thanks Steve).

We had a great turnout, with almost every Beaver, Cub, Scout and Leader there, and with extra parents and siblings there was over 100 people!

An extra big thanks goes to the Traffords for letting us use the Ballindalloch grounds.

Scout Sponsored Cycle

Last month the Scouts were out and about on their bikes, cycling along the edge of Loch Katrine in order to raise money for the Dogs Trust.

A fantastic turnout raised well in excess of £100 and a great cycle was had by all, followed by a well earned ice cream at the end!

Balfron Cubs on the BBC

Last week the cubs had great fun in the dark, playing games and creating a wonderful light show with glow sticks.

Here's a photo of them all running around with their light-sticks, trying to find their shoes in the dark!

The BBC were so impressed they even put their photo on their website (click here).
