Father's Day Celebrations - 26th March

It was our last pack meeting for this term today and we celebrated Father's Day!

I thought I would quickly insert this beautiful photo of the jetty leading onto the Homestead Dam with a couple of scouts fishing.

Fathers are forever losing their keys so for our steam release game the cubs had to "find father's key". They needed to run around and find the word "key" written somewhere .... then race back and let Raksha know.

It did take some time but eventually the "key" was found.

Father's always like getting soap on a rope... but today we had something else very special for them on a rope!

Cubs were blindfolded and "walked" along the rope where they had to feel about 20 items and remember them.

They thoroughly enjoyed this!

Just in case dad lost those keys again, we made him a special key ring holder.

There were diagrams to follow....

.... but sometimes things just don't go right!!

but most of the time they are perfect!

We asked the cubs what their dads do best.... and we got a wide variety of answers .... and I am sure you can guess some were hysterical.
They included :
playing golf
watching tv
.... and with this cue it was time for our next game.
We had already had a discussion on fire safety and the next was a relay game where they ran up and place compacted paper under the string.

the aim was for the fire to burn the string... whcih would knock the flag over.

It goes without saying that the cubs loved this activity.

It was then time to invest and 2 young ladies were invested from another pack into ours.

Some of our Scouts getting ready for the "going up" ceremony.

The cubs saying The Cub Promise for the last time.

Akela introducing the cubs to the Group Scouter.
Welcome to our 2 new ladies and good luck to all those that have gone up to Scouts. We know you all will have an awesome time.
Till next Term
Keep Cubbing
