Rahal I was confident that he was expert in the hairline and temple area and that he’d do a pretty nice work.
I wanted a hairline that looked natural at the temples. Fact, after talking with Dr. We had some great night time entertainment which included Justice Crew who performed at the opening ceremony, AJ’s got talent which happened over many nights, a carnival with many different rides that we could go on and for the closing ceremony we had Samantha Jade and Cyrus. We just had time for a quick group picture with the wolf but with the busy sleepover program, Joeys retreated to the Scout Hall for a next activity and after that, the whereabouts of the mysterious wolf remain unknown.
In the last month, Lisa is soliciting input and having discussions to come up with a name for the new district and now the votes are in. By the way, the new name is will be. Then the wolf was even prominent on the centre stage in the course of the presentations of well earned Grey Wolf awards to lots of Cubs as well as being cheeky with the members of the Gang Show during their performance entertaining the Cubs on Saturday night. Usually, if you are reading this and are whatsoever concerned about the on going viability of the Group to continue providing great activities and opportunities for your children consequently please consider coming onboard in some capacity to similar to Magill simply can’t exist without the had been achieved.
We followed this activity at the School with a ‘Come and Try’ Scouting night with Joeys, Cubs and Scouts and subsequently have new members in general levels. Take a glance at all the photos that the scouts ok on their 30km Adventurer hike, that went from the East side of Mt Crawford forest after that, via Chalks campground to Mt Crawford summit and on to Rocky Paddock campsite and the nearby fire lookout. There was a very good varies of activities. Actually a couple of the off site activities were City sights which is where we caught a bus into Sydney and as patrols spent the day walking around Circular Quay as well as getting on a ferry to spend 60 minutes over in Manly. Certainly, another activity that was a favourite by many scouts was preparing to Botany Bay to complete many water activities. Please find attached the Joey Scout Program for Term 3 2010 with a range of fun activities.
Joey Scout Leaders have incorporated heaps of ideas from the chat we had with Joeys right after last term. Therefore the Group also needs some new faces with fresh ideas to plenty of thanks also Choices Flooring by Fred Cetta and Sons, 635 Lower North East Road. They have been really helpful from start to finish and they provided the flooring at a hugely discounted price, and arranged for a fitter at a reduced rate if you have anything to add for the next newsletter please let me know!

We hope to be able to put one of these out any month as a great information resource for our members. Although, so it is on the long weekend in October School holidays so please lock this weekend in your Scout diaries. That’s Friday evening 2nd Oct to Monday afternoon 5th Oct 2015. Preparation camp or Shakedown Camp is compulsory for all Scouts attending the Jamboree. Whenever letting the children who receive the gift know that they are loved and that they have not been forgotten, any shoe box is sending a notification of hope and love.
Loads of times this gift is the first one they will ever receive.
An amazing quantity of jobs was done.
We can all be very proud of the work we put in. Nonetheless, a big thank you to all the people big and small who contributed in whatever way to the Working Bee at our hall. Essentially, quite a few things that got done where. Enjoy! Therefore, Bandicoot prepared this short video of Magill Joeys to show while he was there, in order to show the oventry Beavers what Joeys in Australia do in Scouting. Our Joey Leader Bandicoot went on a trip to England with his family and ok the opportunity to meet up with the English Scout group 3rd Coventry Beavers. Well done guys! I am sure that the ABC3 Behind The News Extra episode on the 17th of October featured scouts from Eastern District Scout groups Magill, College Park and Gilberton. So this term we are putting some extra focus on it to get ready for the packing of our shoe boxes after this term so they are ready to be shipped and can arrive in time for Christmas. It’s a well scouts from Magill may be attending this event in the first week of relying on numbers from Magill, we will join other Scout Troops from around the District or State, to form one Jamboree Troop.
So there’s approximately 36 Scouts in every Troop and they are put into Patrols for the duration of this Event.
We hope this will provide all members of our Scout Group community the opportunity to share a little of our own comforts with another child.
Maybe your Joey, Cub or Scout could use some pocket money to purchase a small item for inclusion or forego a school lunch order to continued with 5 that won one or more events in their age group! Every day of the Jamboree was different. It rarely stopped which meant getting around the camp site sometimes became difficult. As a result, many of the scout’s camp gear got wet and was unable to use. Completed the set activity and enjoyed all of it, nevertheless there was lots of rain and it was muddy everywhere we turned every and every scout got out in the rain. For the first four days it was raining continually. Paul Franklin from Chubb Training Group presented an informative and hands on session about Fire Awareness and Extinguisher Training.
Now look, the night gave the scouts an opportunity to learn about valuable fire safety information as well as an understanding of what actions need to be taken if they are ever faced with a fire emergency.
Late in Term 3 the entire Group will get gether to pack the shoeboxes.
Over Terms 2 3 we will like all members and families of our Scout Group to contribute donations wards Shoeboxes of Love. Lots of the current leaders and committee members been in their roles for a long time. These leaders and committee members should relish the chance to take a step back while coaching and encouraging someone new to take over in the mid to long time. Some are doing these jobs for years after their own children have finished with Scouts altogether. Now let me ask you something. With that said, this Group has a great parent committee, a great hall and wonderful camaraderie so why should you need to leave with your children?
a new Group Leader has come our way and she should be starting soon once her paperwork was completed.
The patrol was required to set up their own camp site, including all marquee’s, tents, perimeter fencing, gateway structure, and after that organise and prepare 4 meals for which an independent leader should attend.
They’ve been also judged on their camp layout, hygiene, fire protection and similar sides of their camp site. They have been judged on two of the meals, a 3 course dinner on Saturday night and after all Sunday breakfast. While crafting for the younger ones, tree house building for Scouts, orienteering and treasure hunts for all, night time wildlife spotting, bouldering walls, campfire sing a longs and more, we have a variety of activities planned for all ages, including face painting.
Besides, the 1st of August 2010 is World Scout $ Day.
Just a little rain on the last morning to remind us that the weather is not always so kind.
Basically the scouts had wonderful mild weather for their hikes and camping, big storms on either side. We were really blessed with very kind weather for our Scout Troop Camp in the school holidays! I am happy to talk with anyone who would like to know more about this position. No replacement is found for Marco and I have had to take the role as Acting Group Leader, until such time as we can replace Marco. It’s imperative someone takes the role as I can’t continue to do the GL role in the long time, as I already am the District Commissioner for the Adelaide Foothills District I can not give this role the attention it deserves.
AJ2016 was definitely alternative experience to our normal scout camps.
It left many scouts tired and in need of a decent night’s sleep but that was the plan from the start.
Loads of great memories were made and many friendships were formed throughout the camp site. It was also twelve days that 10000 scouts will never forget. Praise the Contingent they had a big heater in the contingent where we could take our clothes and sleeping gear up to dry. Plenty of our scouts were lucky and we didn’t have many or any activities cancelled on us only a few were changed to suit the weather. Notice that through these four days the majority of us got saturated but we didn’t let that upset us or dampen our spirits and we continued to venture off to the activities the next day. Further to the recent loss of our long serving Group Leader, Marco Hess, we are not only searching for a replacement GL but we also need volunteers to become adult helpers and assistant leaders in all sections of the Group -Joeys, Cubs and Scouts.
However this does not preclude current Scout parents from applying, We should like to recruit new leaders with a long period of time commitment to the group similar to Joey or Cub parents.
Please invite them to the meeting.
Maybe you know someone who would enjoy taking on a leader role. On p of that, there might be someone out there who has always had desire to become a leader, perhaps since they have been involved as a Scout/Guide in their youth. Therefore in case your section program isn’t there yet check in a little while as it still being finalised. Please have a look at the term programs at magill.myscoutgroup.org/view/termprograms for what actually was planned. A well-known fact that is. Given that it was so far -in one Day -and for Cubs -I am seeking special permission from our District Leadership, to present these cubs with the Scouts 10 Km Hiking Badge.
Now look, the extreme wet weather flooded out parts of the camp site at Virginia which meant only the competitive patrols entered to the event could attend.
You can see all the water lying around in the photos attached from the camp site at Virginia.
Magill had one such patrol attend. Cost for this event is to be in the order of $ 2000 which includes the fee payable to Scouts SA, plus a cost for the Troop fee and spending money allowance. It’s great value when you look at it as $ 170/day for the time we are away. This is the case. Therefore this includes meals, accommodation, travel costs, Jamboree clothing and travel bag, fantastic activities and even concerts and entertainment at the event. Therefore this gives you an idea of the funds needed. For example, pictured to the right is former Magill Scout Lloyd with Magill Group Leader Marco at the official Scouts SA Awards Ceremony today.
At the ceremony Lloyd was awarded the Australian Scout Medallion which is the p award in the Scout Section.
We had a great time at Woodhouse yesterday.
Everyone seemed to have fun with most of Challenge Hill, hide and seek in the pines, frisbee golf, dam building and time out with handball, the slide was definitely the favourite. Cubs will also recognise Lloyd as he is also wel on his way to his Queen’s Scout Award and is currently assisting with Magill Cubs. Magill Cubs may remember Rachael while she was assisting with the Magill Cubs as part of her work wards the Queen’s Scouts Award. All the local groups around our district are full and it will be difficult to acquire more Scouts. As you are aware the current Scout leaders should like to retire and we are seeking new leaders for 2017 for them to mentor to cover the role for next year and beyond. It is a serious situation. Of course, it will go into recess and possibly signal the ultimate demise of the Group, Therefore in case we have no leaders in the Scout section.
I understand everyone is much busier than we were 20 years ago and you may think, Oh I can’t do that I don’t have the skills. So, that’s what Martin said and he has had a wonderful ten years in Scouts and the Scouting youth have learnt a lot from him and Graham. Checkout the Official Jamboree Website and register for the enews so you stay up to date with the developments as we get closer to January 2016. Jamberoo is a big water park with many different slides that we could all go on over the course of the day. Amid the favourite activities that were part of Adventure was challenge valley. Challenge Valley was an obstacle course set up by Venturers.a lot of onsite activities that we participated in were Cirque Du Scout where we were taught so that’s all as Scouts at Scout events, not family trips or weekends away.
Scouts need to have achieved an extent of competency with their Badgework which qualifies them for the Pioneer Badge. They must have slept at least 10 nights under canvas prior to attending the Jamboree and 3 nights must be continuous for one event. Best of all, the Scouts every had the chance to use a couple of different extinguishers first hand and experience for themselves how it feels to handle an extinguisher to put out a fire. Scouts also learnt about the different kinds of fires types, how fires can spread rapidly and the dangers of smoke in a fire situation. Marco has decided for family reasons to take leave from Magill Scout Group, however Marco wouldn’t be returning and at the Annual General Meeting and Pancake night on Tuesday 7th June, everyone will have the opportunity to say Goodbye to Marco and thank him for all his fabulous work he has given to Magill over the years. On p of that, marco will remain quietly in the background looking after the Magill website so we have not lost him entirely.
