IOM Bank at Mullin y Carty

The Isle of Man Bank sent a team of nine to our camp site recently and what a fantastic job they have done. The damaged areas have been raked and reseeded, overhanging branches cut back, a lot of ivy taken off the ruin, the track cleared of bramble and the undergrowth cut back to the river giving us a much larger site. A big thank you to their team.

Building work is proceeding well and by the end of August we must consider moving our equipment and stores under the supervision of Bernard. In the mean time we need to have a clean up. We need to clean the toilet block and burn rubbish. This should only take a gang of us a few hours. Can you put in your diary Saturday 2nd August meeting at Mullin y Carty.

For more pictures of the camp see the photo gallery.

Beaver Scouts' Annual Sports COMPETITION

The annual Beaver Scouts' sports competition was held on Sunday 13th July 2014 at Gymn's F.C. ground.

1st Douglas (Monday), 1st Douglas (Thursday), 5th Douglas, Onchan (Tuesday), Onchan (Thursday), Peel and Rushen took part in running races, egg and spoon races, sack races, ball and cup races, skipping races and space hopper races. In addition there was a running relay involving four Beaver Scouts from each Colony and the last race was a water relay where every member of each Colony took part.

The event was great fun for the Beavers. It was also enjoyed by the numerous parents, grandparents, and brothers and sisters who came along to watch and cheer on the Beavers.

Onchan Thursday Beavers were the overall winners. The Island Commissioner presented them with the large sports shield to hold for one year and a smaller replica to keep. In second place was Onchan Tuesday and in third Peel. All Colonies received certificates for taking part.

Upcoming Training Days

The Island Commissioner has asked to pass on a couple of training days and would like feedback on a couple more.

Guy would like feedback on:

  • Provisionally, would anyone be interested in a night hike, (to simulate fog should you be caught out on the hills) Saturday 30 August? Sunset is about 8pm so we would meet at 8.15 in St Johns for a two hour course.
  • Also, would anyone be interested in a skills day similar to the day we had in May? This time on a saturday, 25th October.

Please let him know if you are interested in attending either of these events.

Also, these are possibly dates for your calendar:

  • On the 6th and 7th September the Northwest Regional Development Team are coming over to deliver a one day GSL training on the saturday also suitable for AIC's and AGSL's. On the sunday there will be a development day for all scout leaders.
  • On the 8th and 9th November Gilwell's Safeguarding Team are coming over to deliver a two day course to  about 6 leaders. Please let me know if you are interested in being part of this team with a view to being able to deliver training to our groups. If we have between 4 and 6 leader the job can be shared. We already have a leader who will be the coordinator.
