Leaders Skill Day - 10 November

Approximately 75 Pack Scouters and Pack Helpers descended on Gilwell Florida here in Johannesburg to add to their vast knowledge and learn a few more ideas to take back to their own Packs.
Many brilliant ideas were put forward in games, craft work, compass work, puzzles, golf, ... to name just a few. Here the Pack Scouters are having fun making a Toucan Bird Feeder.The Knotting Base - by the Sea Captain himself!

Little pine cone bird.

The craft ladies in action

Pirates of the Caribbean - compass work

The South African Flag - with a difference!
The Jungle Book - a wealth of ideas!

.... and a beautiful mask to make!

The static base told us all about the new Interest Badges that had been introduced as well as other interesting facts like "World Thinking Day"
Brilliant ideas will now be taken back to each Pack in the Area.
Email me if you would like any of these ideas for your Pack.
Till Next Time
Keep Cubing

  2. Hi Steve. Here in the Gauteng area we attend a Skills Training Day once a year. We try to keep all the Leaders well trained on all the necessary skills they will need to have for fun-filled pack meetings..
