Banba – no meeting this week and a few reminders

Banba News

Just a reminder that we have no meeting this Saturday, 17th February, because of mid-term.

We have a few more regular meetings in the Den before the St Patrick’s Day weekend, when we will also be off. We’ll be using this time to hone some of our scouting skills, and for the “Newbies” to learn a bit about the history of Scouting and what it all means.

After the break on St Patrick’s Weekend, our next meeting will be the overnight hostelling trip, on Saturday 24th March. We’ll have a hike, lots of fun, and on the Sunday morning we will invest the “Newbies” into 8ú Calafort and into the international scouting movement.

So now is a good opportunity to start getting the uniform together. The Scout shop in Liffey Street is open all weekend, while the Scout Shop in Bray is open on Saturday morning. You can also have a look at John Higgins’ email earlier this week for items of 2nd hand uniform and gear that we have to pass on.

Enjoy the quiet Saturday morning and slán go fóill go dtí an tseachtain seo chugainn!

Bray Head hike, 25th November 2017

Banba News

We had a small group who met in Bray – where Leaders, TY Scout Helpers and Parents outnumbered the 11 Cubs (and dog!).

We went up and over the top, where we stopped for a sandwich and hot chocolate, en route. Then we went down again to the Bray Head to Greystones path.

And stopped for more hot chocolate back in Bray before all disappearing with our parents.
