13 March 2005 ~ Doors Open Day
For one day only 62nd hut was flung open for the day. After a request from the District, as part of their recruitment campaign, we put on a highly impressive display.
Many ongoing powerpoint display’s, a couple of videos. hundreds of photos – dating back to 1914 (!) As well as activities involving candles, woggles, and much more there were bacon sandwiches, chicken, drinks, the list goes on… …including cardboard caving, cargo net, coffee lounge…
Thank you very much to all those involved, if you weren’t there you missed a good one!
19th March 2005 ~ Super Splash
…if you were a Scout participating there was plenty of opportunity to get worn out, swimming in every race, and a whole 45 minutes fun swim at the end, complete with rafts, balls, floats, weights, hoops – you name it…
Thank you very much to all those who entered or helped or watched.
Congratulations to 63rd (D) who came 1st – (the last time they won was 1924!)
Also entered was 62nd And 61st / 104th. Seven teams in total.
Red Nose Day ~ March
The photos explain it all…
£40 was donated to Comic Relief – Well done and thank you!
25th March 2005 ~ Bag Packing at Morrisons
Thank you once again.
The Scouts had the task of carrying the District Scout Colours.
THANK YOU very much to all who turned out smartly, be you a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Leader!
15th May 2005 ~ Ten Tors
Departing at 7am on the Saturday each team completes either 35, 45 or 55 miles. All Bristol North West teams finished in time (one team only just).
Congratulations to you all.
See the Web Sites page for Links to the BNW and National Ten Tors Site.
20th May 2005 ~ Pirates!
…62nd Scout did splice the main brace and walk that them there plank…
…searched for treasure
…fought on deck with swords in hand (well pipe lagging actually)
…we loves all theee that donned thy outfits
…congratulations me hearties, C’pn Hook be very proud (or was it Cher? Could even have been Brian May…)
We started well beating our first opponents 3-0! Our second opposing team didn’t turn up, a winning streak! Things were looking good.
However, our last 2 opposing teams were simply too good for us and we lost the last two matches. Our goalkeeper though did manage the man of the match award after some superb saves (how’s your head by the way?)
Congratulations to all our team, they played well and tried really hard.
18th June 2005 ~ That ‘Yomp’ Thing
…that the walk was too short, despite getting back to respective huts way past 2am for chocolate and biscuits.
Anyway, at least the leaders have discovered a particularly evil way of waking up Scouts, cook bacon and set the smoke alarm off!! Works a treat!
Apologies for no photos – forgot to take any!
29th October 2005 ~ Halloween Bash
The hog was roasted and subsequently devoured by the masses. Early indications show that over 150 people supported us.
Thank you all once again. Photo’s may appear, it depends if anyone took any and if they get them to me for the website, I’m not holdin my breath!!
25th November 2005 ~ Best Chips Award
Half a dozen chip shops were visited and the rules were strict. Marks out of ten were awarded for good service, crispiness, sogginess and plenty more. The Scouts took their job seriously, being quite critical, but extremely fair.
CONGRATULATIONS to the winners CHAN’S on WELLINGTON HILL WEST for their SUPERB chips!
Cooking Popcorn – 62nd Style
16th December 2005 ~ Scout Bag packing at Asda
