1st Scout Meeting, 11th January 2014


Written by Janice Koong, Assistant Senior Sixer & Scribe

Finally! Our first meeting of 2014! It was wonderful to see everybody assembled together once again, after two long months. There were many different expressions on every cub’s faces, running the gamut from happiness to reluctance. Clearly some people had difficulties waking up early again. 

The Senior Sixers, Assistant Senior Sixers, Sixers and Assistant Sixers arrived at the KidZone at 8am, an hour earlier than the rest, to prepare ourselves after the long break. During the extra hour, we did foot drills and practised the Horseshoe over and over again. Tiring don’t you think? Soon, the other cubs started streaming in and before we knew it, it was 9.

We began the first Scout Meeting of the year with a horseshoe, followed by Indian File and Sixers’ Corner. Sixers had to help their cubs in completing their Bronze Arrow and take some tests if they could.

After that, we assembled for foot drills. Sigh…. Long and tiresome foot drills. As it was 10.30 by the time we finished our drills, Raksha quickly gave out the new log books before she proceeded to host the Recruitment Talk. Kaa then took over, leading us as we sang songs.

At 11 AM, we ended the meeting with a Sunset Party. A few cubs stayed to join the Recruitment Talk.
