As I mentioned tonight we are going SCUBA diving on the 24th of October (Wednesday night not Tuesday). If you want to come make sure your name is on the list at HQ and you fill in the form below. It costs £20 and will be at Blythe Bridge high school. Remember if you don’t have this form you CANNOT come diving. Numbers are limited to 15 so get your name down ASAP. If there are more of that want to do it we will arrange another opportunity to do it.
As most of you know we are going to Kibb on the 25th Sept for air rifle shooting and archery. If you want to come please put your name down on the list at HQ and download the form below, fill it in and bring it back. If you do not have this form you CANNOT shoot. The cost for the evening is £8, space is limited so if you want to come get your name down ASAP.
We start shooting at 18:00 on the night so please be there on time.
Permission to shoot
The decision has been made by the leaders that from now on we will all wear uniform every Tuesday night. We have decided this for a few reasons:
- We are the only Explorer unit in the district that do not wear uniform, in fact it seems we are one of the only units in the country that do not
- We should represent the Scouting movement when we are meeting together and the best way to do that is in uniform
- Parents/guardians spend a lot of money buying uniforms and spend a lot of time sewing on badges etc. it is unfair to only be wearing them 12 times a year
You are welcome to wear jeans or similar rather than your scout trousers and we are happy for you to remove your shirt and necker after flag break so long as it is put back on for flag down.
