Young Peoples service - on Sunday

We have been invited to help celebrate the Young People of Baschurch area - THAT'S YOU LOT!!!
We will meet in Millington Close at 10.30, to march behind the Drum Corps to the church.  The service is great fun, and we will be finished by 12.30.
Mums, Dads, brother and sisters, grannies and any one else are also very welcome to come along.
Full uniform, with school trousers and very shiny shoes (please, no jeans and trainers).

Bickley Coppice camp......


Don't forget to sign up for the Bickley Coppice camp in September.

Squirtle..........................


Tracking -  a very useful skill indeed.  Shooting a supersoaker - likewise. 

Combine the 2 skills this Friday and celebrate the last meeting of this term.  You will follow a trail laid by the cunning Explorers and defend yourself  when ambushed, so equip yourselves with water pistols, supersoakers and squirty bottles and dress to get wet.

Last year we found this sad, wet old man who had been ambushed by Explorers - he is now dry and being rehabilitated!
Bring a towel and a change of clothes!

The 38th National Scout Rifles Championship.....


The National Small-bore Rifle Association holds their annual Scouts rifles Championships between 17th and 19th of October.  Boreatton always make up almost all of the Shropshire team and this year there are 4 places up for grabs for the camp. 

You must have shot at Alans a few weeks ago and be able to commit to weekly training sessions.  The camp is likely to cost up to £60 but for that you get all your food, transport, a lovely tent to sleep in, and the chance to compete at the home of British shooting!

Oh, and you get to wear the coveted Shropshire Rifles hoody.

Only 4 places - FIRST COME FIRST SERVED!!!  https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/rifles-camp-tickets-12112347357

Food with gigantism.............





A proud moment.....

when Dad presents Lad with his Chief Scouts' Gold Award.  Well done that Scout!

July 4th 1776.....................July 4th 2014

On July the 4th 1776, a group of Americans declared how happy they were with being looked after by kindly King George the Third who had a great fondness for tea!  Every year our colonial cousins celebrate being the largest British colony by having parties and eating giant food.

To help them celebrate we will create monster food this Friday. 

Please bring a plate and fork with your name on (and a plastic bag to take them home in).  8.00 at the hut!

(BTW - like Wikipedia, the above may be slightly factually challenged!).

Challenge Night Friday 26th June

This Friday Woodman Pete is in charge as Alan & Myself will be off to Mongolia with the explorers and Phil will be driving us to th airport...If we can find any wifi you may be able to see what's happening on the Explorer blog... http://boreattonexplorers.blogspot.co.uk/ or on Facebook.

It will be a patrol challenge night with a range of 'challenging' tasks for you to complete as a patrol...You will need to be in full uniform and as smart as possible ;-) Think teamwork.
Meet at the hut at 8pm, don't be late

The Bickley Coppice Nearly the End of Summer Camp.........


Did you enjoy your evening at Bickley Coppice?  Every year we run a weekend camp there which is a little bit unusual!  You will cook all your meals on wood fires, learn to carve and to make fires, saw and cut wood with an axe, and build a bivouac and sleep in it (if you want to).

This is a very laid back Scout camp and most Troops don't have the opportunity to do these activities, so if you would like to make the most of the last of the summer weather then sign up!!!

Orienteering @ Bickley Coppice 20 June 2014

Friday will be normal time for a change, but not normal location... We'll meet at Bicton Church SY3 8EH at 8pm and transport you down to Bickley Coppice. On site we'll be checking out and repairing the Orienteering Course and I guess Phil will cook the odd sausage.... Can you bring a pair of gardening gloves and secuteurs if you have them please? If you have a map compass you can bring that too. We'll be holding a camp here in September so if you've never been before it's your chance to check it out. http://www.bickleycoppice.org.uk/
Please come with strong shoes or boots, long trousers (probably brambles) waterproofs if it looks like rain. You will need to have a neckerchief on to identify yourselves as scouts. There may be others on site and the warden will be around.
