Then we’ll have a BBQ back at the hall at 12.30 pm.

Everyone is invited!

Photos from Cuboree 2014

Here are some photos from the 2014 Cuboree (6th – 10th January 2014, Cataract Scout Camp, Appin, NSW).
Cataract is huge! The activities organised for the kids were terriffic… I think the Cubs had a great experience.
I was one of the cooks for Pack 709, so I didn’t get to all the activities, but I took 520 photos before the battery gave out. Here’s 64 of the better ones, so you can get an idea of what it was like.

Billy Cart Derby Report

Blacktown District Cubs have obviously done this before, because their Billy Cart Derby was brilliantly organised. Morreau Reserve is the perfect venue, the weather was perfect too, and all the cubs and joeys had a great time riding the billy carts down the mighty Rooty Hill. Did Tracey survive the Leaders Race at the end of the day? Open up this post to see the huge photo gallery! [Read more…]
