Pac Yac 2009

Pac Yac this time round, was held at the Full Gospel Church Camping Grounds in Irene.
The majority of the leaders arrived on the Friday - amidst pouring rain - but nevertheless we had a night full of games to entertain the masses!
This photo is out of sequence (apologies) and should go near the end when all the skits are being done.
All the skits were based on Beatle songs - and ours was "When I'm 64" - as you can see, we are all close to that age now!

Brilliant posters

Bright and early the next morning, after a delicious breakfast prepared by the wonderful Rovers, we broke into our groups and started with our bases.

My first base for the day was the "waterscope" made here out of a 1 litre yoghurt tub.
Very simple and east .... cut a hole out of the top of the tub, cut a hole out of the lid. Colour in the tub if you wish. Place cling film over the side with the lid and place an elastic band around the tub to secure the cling film. Place the lid back on.
You have a water scope.
If you do not live close to a dam, place some water into a baby's bath together with some plastic toys. Place a bit of bubble bath in the water to make it bubbly on the top. Cubs can now use their water scope to find out how many articles are under the water ..... and can name them.
Another base in the morning was the mosaic pictures.

Beautiful Bird feeders

Once the first lot of bases were completed, we all took a walk to a nearby river for lunch.

Of course the opportunity for boat races could not be missed!

In the afternoon the leaders did more bases.
This is a water turbine and works extremely well.
On Saturday afternoon we were very lucky to have Anne Mearns come and give us a talk on the environment. She brought along her friend frog..... who most people found quite fascinating.
Saturday night saw all the groups practising their skits.

Can you guess who?

Fun was had by all ...

Lucy in the sky with Diamonds!
Dinner on Saturday Night was a magical affair with the Rovers doing a Mystery Dinner. We were issued numbers and had to select these in any order. Well, needless to say this is how our supper was going to be served to us.
We started off with coffee and biscuits and ended off with starters!
It was hilarious and great fun!
Sunday morning saw us take a brisk walk to the musuem along the way. Here is a beautiful outside church where we held out Scouts Own.

In the Tea Garden

Old Wolf!

We stopped by a bridge for a quick photo!
The scenery is spectacular!

Many friendship made
Lots to tell
Ideas to take back to the pack
All in all it was a stunning weekend
Till next Time
