Scout Meeting 18th September 2010


Written by Scribe Marcus Choo
At this meeting, some cubs did not wear the full scout uniform. Some did not bring their caps, and one wore white school socks! Hmmm…are we becoming a little slack? Time to pull up our socks a little.

Today, to start off the meeting, Akela tested us on how well we obeyed commands. We were told some sailors commands, and the accompanying actions of the commands. Some of the commands were "Scrub the deck" and "Climb the rigging". It was really fun to do the actions and I tried my best not to be slow to prevent myself from being thrown out of the game. Scrub the deck was the most used command……
Next was the main activity of the day: acting a short skit. Each group was supposed to act out on the how the pelican showed the value of Generosity. Each group was also given 4 examples on some behaviors of a pelican that show Generosity. The value we chose was how the pelican protects their young in all harsh weathers. It was fun acting out the skit with my team, though the content of the skids turned out somewhat identical, except for one group, which acted a totally different thing.
Games time! Today's game was about kicking each other's shoes to the other side. We were told to take off our left shoe and throw it in the center. Then, between teams A and B, we competed to see how many shoes were on each other's side, and the lesser, the better. Sadly, Team B kept losing.  A few shoes were 'lost' and we ended up finishing the game quite late!



All too soon, it was time for flag break.  It'll be another two scout meetings before we break for final exams and I'm not exactly looking forward to that!
