District Sixer Training Day 2014

25 January 2014

Thirty three cubs took part in the day and did a variety of activities. These included – Orienteering which involved the cubs following bearings outside but soon changed to inside with the thunderstorm. They made Samurai hats – a link to the next Jamboree in Japan, learnt how to wire a plug, do flag break and lead grand howl. George Sharp talked about moving to Scouts and did a matching game. They tried using skills taught by Baden Powell when Scouting started and cubs also learnt what was expected of a Sixer and how they could help the leaders more. Activities were stopped for drinks and games giving leaders a much deserved break. Despite having fewer cubs than normal the day went well and the cubs had a great time. Many thanks to all the leaders for their help on the day.
