Wednesday, 20 April 2011
The following Friday (29th - the RW day!), we will be meeting up at around 10.00am. We have had to change arrangements as Bowbrook archers need the field during the afternoon.
Hope see you all there - give me a call if you are unsure about locations etc

It's the hols already! Make sure you eat lots of choc! There's no scouts during the hol or the first Friday back at school (which is the extra royal wedding bank hol so you'll all be busy at your street party anyway (???)
Scouts starts again on Friday May 6, when most of you will meet at the scout hut except our Archers who will be heading to muster at Phasels Wood to shoot for gold and glory in the National Scout Archery Competition as part of the Shropshire Company.
(OK the team doesn't always shoot this well but this round was worth a photo! Well shot!)>
We will be contacting the team and other members of the district archery club about clout practice on the Field of Bowbrook when we get details but I expect at least one practice during the hols. Meanwhile the tech team 'Rory the Scoutmobile' ("we are a scout troop from Boreatton and we are all about speed" they say) need to get speedy about finalising their Scalextric4Schools competition entry, so we will continue to meet on Tues evenings 7-8:30 (whoever is not away on exotic holidays with family)
Wind tunnel is a work in progress but we have a fan speed controller and we can see we're not getting enough rear downforce with this design...
Finally, the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire has invited us to join him in welcoming the Royal Irish back from their tour of Afghanistan when they parade through Shrewsbury on 12 April.
We plan to meet in the abbey grounds at 11:30 and march up to join the rest of the county scouts. Parades are always stirring events and we will bring flags to wave - if you have a union flag (not jack - we're not at sea) of your own you could bring it along!
