Here we are heading down the Severn (unusually, all pointing the right way!)
Hmmm... either they or I are pointing backwards in this one
Lunchtime with the scouts is always a most civilised affair...
... limboing up for the next day's canoeing...
...and by the end we were all looking quite proficient (if we wanted to)
There are some more pics in one of my public albums...
Thanks again to Drummond Outdoor - it was great!

...also, we suffered a sudden outbreak of purple fuzzy ear!?!
(how can you tell them to keep quiet when you cannot hear whether they are, and they cannot hear you?)
The Bisley camp is ages off but very popular and I need to send off names and fees soon so let me know if you want to come , otherwise - have a good half term hol!
I'll see the other half-a-troop's worth of you on Friday at the hut as usual for canons!

The judging panel will reconvene soon to conclude their deliberations, but in the interim, the troop liked the smoke bombs (obviously!) and (best) the scout walking on custard (but only so long as he didn't stop!).
(by the way - if you don't see much of yourself on the blog - it could be that you are spending the evening as a regular water fight? Why not try joining in with the activities? If you are not interested in the stuff we are doing then let me know what you would like to do - most ideas are possible with a bit of planning!)

Mini-camp canoe rally - cost £45
Numbers limited to about 10 by availability of instructors. 27-28 May.
Priority to those that weren't around last time we did it... Two day canoe rally down the Severn with Drummond Outdoor - we went with them a couple of years ago - it will be nice at this time of year (i.e. warmer!) We will camp overnight at either the Royal Hill or Bickley coppice. Book your place by giving me the fees!
Mini-expedition to South Shrops - cost £45
Numbers limited to 12 - must be 12 or older, must be able to swim 25 yds, wet suits compulsory (let me know if you havn't got one and we can prob sort you out, else £5 on the day will do the trick)
Hiking, camping, mucking about, and rafts at the National Whitewater Centre - 31 May to 1 June.
Book your place by giving me the fees!
Final details will appear on www.boreattonscouts.blogspot.com soon (but you knew that anyway...)
