    the report from this weekend's Cub camp
    Cubs Solve Crime at Scout HQ!

    1st Weald Brook Cub Scouts were devastated when,on their first night of Cub Camp, their precious ‘Golden Tent Peg’ Trophy, won at last year’s District Scouting Skills competition, was stolen. The Cubs phoned the local Police, who visited the scene, however the police officer informed them that the force was simply too busy to deal with it, and they would have to solve the crime themselves! Fortunately, the Cubs were eager to do some detective work, and were more than happy to help.

    “We were doing the Grand Howl at the start of camp when the lights went black all of a sudden.” said Cub Scout Thomas. “Then we saw a person go across the hall and open the trophy case, but we couldn’t see who. When the lights were back, we saw that the trophy was gone!”

    The Cubs then set to work decoding clues, gathering evidence and statements and even studying for fingerprints, before gathering all the information together and solving the mystery of who had stolen their missing trophy. The Police were finally able to arrest local Cub Leader Alan Dawson, whose team of Cubs were runners up in the competition last year. “We can
    only assume that he was bitter and jealous” explained Cub Scout leader and Police Officer Ian Krout. The Police vehicle then paid the Cubs a well deserved visit, to thank them for their hard work, and present them with their *Communicator activity badges.

    Special thanks should be extended to Brentwood Police, who gave great assistance throughout the weekend, allowing the Cubs to phone the station and successfully solve the crime.




    Bless them - some of the younger Cubs are still not sure if we set the whole thing up or not! We had police arriving on "blues and twos", SOCO attended, an appeal for information on youtube led to emails, texts and 'phone messages being received.

    Photos on our website later tonight...

    ...and we even manaaged to convince, for a while, parents picking up that there had been a genuine robbery!

    A tents stand off was reported to have taken place at the annual e-camp

    It is alleged that an argument started between participants over the allegation that someone had their sleeping bag stolen. The two sides were said to be poles apart.

    Once camper eventually admitted that the item had in fact been left at home.

    The truth revealed

    Shadowman has escaped from the police.
    Last known sighting was Manchester.

    The missing clothes has been blamed on Stanley.

    The RSPCA has been called in to investigate a possible Guinea Pig circus training scandal. (bed Bouncing !!!)

    The noise abaitment officer has been called to investiagte the large amount of Beep Boop sounds.

    Apparently the level of technical support at the ecamp help desk has now colapsed.

    Tweeting banned for ever, please, stop, no more.

    Oh damm, what was that spot name
