Last Meeting in Term 3, 31st August 2013

Written by: Caleb Liow, Sixer & Scribe
                                        
"Beep..."the sound of the senior Sixers' whistle echoed through the air .Taking the cue , we formed horseshoe and conducted Colour party.


Afterwards ,we sat in Indian file to receive our instructions :the Sixers were told to form their own six corner. Then , we had to  help the cubs in our six's who have yet to achieve bronze arrow obtain it.4 of my members did not have it, but after reading their record book , I was glad to know that most of them (my six) were almost finished .


Raksha announced that she was expecting everyone to have at least the bronze arrow by the end of this year ."Lucas Lim , bronze arrow" Pleased to hear that one of my six  members had obtain a badge, I realized that he was the first new scout to achieve bronze  arrow . I was proud of his effort and encouraged him to receive silver arrow.


Our next task: Using the newspapers  we had brought , we had to cut out the Scout Promise and the Scout Law letter by letter before pasting them on to the large piece of vanguard paper. Everyone got to work excited , eager to win some points as a six.As a Sixer , I split my six into 2 groups , each working on either the Scout Promise or the Scout Law.Newspaper flew everywhere,  (bad idea) in our frantic search for the right letters .it was great fun and I was definite that it was enjoyed by all.

Displeased by the cleanliness of the Kidzone after the  activity , Raksha said we had to clean the area thoroughly .Finally ,the Kidzone was spick and span.We played many rounds of "Tic Tac Toe (cum dog & bone)".A Tic Tac Toe grid was drawn on the ground and the     pack was split into two teams. Every cub scout had a number and when your number was called ,you ran to the centre, much like dog & bone. But instead of snatching something you ran into one of the boxes and either stood (for team 1) or squatted (for team 2). Counters were replaced with cub scouts and the rules of Tic Tac Toe were applied.Everyone had a whale of a time except a few who were blamed by their teammates for a loss of points .

After the great deal of fun , we settled down to select the winners of the "Newspaper Contest" . Our six , along with 3 other sixs , were chosen and awarded 30 points .The remaining sixs were awarded 10 points for their effort.We gave Raksha a jolly good surprise … a birthday song for her belated birthday. The meeting ended with sunset party and Sixers council.
