    I went pun-blind after that. Anyone?

    Probably started flashing so somebody took it out to stop it.

    Shouldn’t be a problem in a church building, as themLord said, “let there be light”

    Just wondered. Should I pack the small ones for ease of carrying, or the larger ones for ease of use?

    Take both, and let the cubs carry the large ones, but then use the small cub sized ones

    Helping son clear out student house. Large metal fire pit and big bag of logs to get rid of. I wish we had room in the car to take these to the scout hut (in addition to all his stuff) I say. There's a scout hut down the road he says. One phone call and they are now the property of York district scouts. Nice to belong.

    Got a Cub in the process of Moving On to the Scouts, and assuming he can remember to finish his Our World Challenge over his summer hols (which I'd say is about 50/50 to begin), he'll need to complete his Team Leader in the autumn term...

    How does a Cub who's just started Scouts get a Team Leader Challenge? His PL's not exactly likely to let him take the lead in activities! xD

    is the the cub award? can you really not blag it? surely he's done this in the past 2.5 yrs?


    1. Lead your Six in an activity or captain a team.
    2. Help a new Cub to join in with the Pack meeting.
    3. Teach another Cub a new skill.
    4. Ask your Six or team what they want to do in Cubs, tell your leaders and help to make sure that it happens

    We had a Scout recently that just had the “lead a team...” outstanding and was moving up. Same problem. No chance he is going lead something in Explorers.

    We brought him back for an event and got him to lead. It was a natural fit. Especially as he brushed up in navigation to ensure he impressed us enough to show he had passed that requirement.

    Yep, we've done just that. Just invite the Scout back to cubs for a night at the start of the next term to run an activity or two. They have the summer to prepare so ask about or suggest a few things they could do.

    Last night...

    I was in the hall digging out our Icelandics - on my own, well, except for the Zumba ladies in the main hall. I was up in the attic (where we keep our tentage), the hatch is in the back room.

    I was using a pulley and climbing rope arrangement to lower the tents down, unfortunately, the handles snapped on one of the bags. It fell to the ground and knocked the ladder away from the hatch.

    The back room has quite a high ceiling...

    Obvs took a photo and posted it to a facebook chat group (because that's what you do these days). It has ex-Scouts and a couple of leaders in there - and crucially people who aren't a million miles away. First message came in, "Press your community alarm button, someone will be along to help you..." Ex-scout, now a doctor in Aberdeen.

    Everyone else just laughed presumably, because no other ****** answered.

    I had to shimmy down the rope I'd been using to lower the tents (good quality climbing rope fortunately). I'm an out-of-shape 45 year old man. I wasn't even sure I could hold my own weight on the rope - once I'd committed to doing it, I wouldn't have been able to get back on to the attic floor.

    I hummed and hawwed for a while (got the rest of the tents down), and still no ****** came down to help. There weren't even any messages of concern - "Are you alright?" Nothing. Zip. Nada.

    All of that to a Salsa soundtrack coming from the Zumba class in the main hall.

    Eventually I shimmied down. Rappelled, lowered-myself, ninja-style... I didn't fall, it was fine (strained my shoulder a bit...) Still no messages. So I took a photo - me posed atop the pile of Icelandics, with on leg entangled through the ladder - no message with the picture just my mangled body.

    Still nothing.

    The second photo of my mangled corpse is now the group chat icon.

    What happened to the Scout Laws?
