    Get in some haggis to taste
    See if you can find someone who plays the bagpipes (one of our dads came in and played)
    Teach them a Scottish jig or sword dance

    Kimmy,

    Welcome to

    If you want to send me a pm with your e-mail address, I can send you a copy of our programme for Burns Night, which might give you a few ideas.

    Scottish night

    I'm assuming your Scottish night is to tie in with St Andrews Night?
    There's a programme on the patron saints in the programmes to go section of the Cub start up kit. You can get to it online on this link:

    You could also ask each of the cubs to bring a friend then you could learn some easy Ceilidh Dances.
    Here's a link to a website giving instructions:

    I've just been in Berwick, which would be interesting to include that in a scottish night. If anyone doesn't know Berwick is a border town and has been scottish and english many times and was at war with Russia until recently because it wasn't part of england or scotland. It is currently in england, but they want to go to scotland and thier football team plays in scotland.

    Rule 66. A map and compass offers no protection against getting horribly lost.
