Wild West District Sixer Council Meeting - 23rd February 2013

We visited the WILD WEST today for a District Sixer Council Meeting.

 After a quick opening, cubs were handed a piece of paper with one line of a nursery rhyme.  They had to run around and find the rest of their nursery rhyme and this made up the Six for the morning.

 We were very lucky to have a lady come and join us to talk to the cubs on Bullying.
 They learnt a lot and have taken away some handy hints
 It was then time for some fun!
 Pillow fighting up first!

 ..... with Akela joining in!
 Next we had a Rover showing the cubs what slack-lining is all about

 Some horse-shoe tossing
 ..... being easier said than done!

 and then it was juice and eats time!
Cow patties and moopee
 The Sixer Council base is where they learnt their responsibilities and duties as a Sixer

 and the rifle base was a great hit!

 To close off we had a Scout come in and talk to the cubs about "going up" to Scouts... and to find out what they were afraid of (if anything) and to answer any questions they had.
 This was a great session and the cubs loved the TS from 6th Benoni!
A truly great District Scouter's Council
Thanks to everyone involved.
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing

4th Benoni - Lost in the Jungle - 8th February

A visit to 4th Benoni to find ourselves "Lost in the Jungle" .... oh dear!

 After investing Ben "into the Jungle" it was time for some play.
 Getting rid of all the wild animals with a quick steam release game.
 Catching fish for supper...

 Quiet time yarn
 and then time to make a compass to make sure we know where we are heading.

 After all that work our socks really smelled !
 Cubs identifying different smells

Another great cub meeting.
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
