Scout Meeting and Job Week Briefing 6th march 2010

10 minutes after 9 am and we still have more than 15 who were late. While the pack were already formed up in a horse shoe, these Cubs stood outside the horse show for the Colour Party.

Cubs took a while settling in Indian File. Their dressing also left much to be desired, and Baloo had the Senior Sixer put them through Right Dressing, or "Ke kanan Lurus" exercises. After several times, Cubs settld down to the routine. Still more work to be done!
Uniform was another issue. Scarves were not properly rolled and worn. Some Cubs had to redo their scarves. The senior Cubs lent a helping hand.
Akela awarded badges before everyone proceeded to the AVA room for the Job Week briefing. While Akela was coaching the Cubs on how to ask for jobs, and the proper way to conduct themselves, some Cubs were busy talking!

Wonder what these 2 were doing?

Akela set the target for new Cubs at $40, with the target increasing with the more senior Cubs. To earn a special leather woggle, Cubs had to earn at least $150 for a bronze engraving, $200 for a silver engraving and $600 for a rare gold engraving.

Cubs then paired themselves up for the coming Job Week. Some even had 3 in a group, while a handul elected to work alone. This would have to be approved by Akela.
