One of our Explorer leaders, Gayle, will be embarking upon the 23 mile mighty stride kiltwalk from Glasgow Green to Moss O Balloch Park on the 29th April 2018.
It’d be great if we could all give Gayle some encouragement and leave her a sponsor on her page https://glasgowkiltwalk2018.everydayhero.com/uk/gayle-8
The money raised goes back into your Scout Group plus more as the funds raised at the kiltwalk are topped up by 40%! Give Gayle so encouragement and help your Scout group keep the adventure going!
Tuesday past seen our last night before the spring break. We had a games night and everyone got an easter egg.
For the month of March our winning six was the Orange six! Well done team, enjoy your t-shirts!
30 Scouts descended upon The Craigs, Torphichen for chilly weekend of camping. It was a great weekend with plenty to do just a little cold!
Next up we’ve got our district camping competition which we enter one patrol and then our group camp for all sections on the 22nd-24th June at Auchengillan.
At the weekend 5 of our leadership team Mark, Bruce, Stuart, Alex and Mark II joined the Clyde hills team on an adventure to Binnein an Fhidhleir in the Arrochar Alps.
It was a snowy day with so harsh winds but a great day was had by all with plenty of new skills learned by all.
Are you up for the adventure? Being a member of the Scout movement gives you a wealth of opportunities. If you’d like to volunteer you can send us a message here http://www.2cb.org.uk/contact-us/volunteer/ We’d love hear from you.
At the weekend 16 Explorers and 9 Scouts descended upon Auchengillan Outdoor Centre for SubZero! It was a cold weekend with lows of -1°C living up to the name of ‘SubZero’. Over the course of the weekend our young people had the chance to try: Segways, Mud Karts, Paradrop, Climbing, Archery, Air Rifle Shooting and many more activities! There was even an outdoor pool party. The weekend was a great opportunity and great experience for all involved.
Below you can see the wonderful snowy scene that greeted us on Sunday morning along with the aftermath trying to dry tents at the hall.
Until the next camp…
Our next fundraising event for the year is our annual race night which takes place on the 28th April!
It’s an interactive race night and is always a great laugh. We hope to see as many people as possible on night. The funds raised on the night will mainly be for our trip to Kandersteg in Switzerland this summer where 35 Scouts and Explorers will be going.

Our fundraising team have been busy planning our first fundraising event for 2018!
New for 2018 we will be having a on Saturday 27th January in the Scout hall.
Tickets for the event will be £10 per person. This includes a live ceilidh band on the evening, a wee dram of whiskey and a taster of haggis, neeps and tatties.
There will be a full bar on the night so the event is for over 18s only.
Given that we need a dance floor for a wee jig the tickets will be limited so buy them quick to avoid disappointment!
All funds raised go towards keeping your child’s scouting adventure going and providing the much-needed funds for the hall structural works. We hope this event will prove a great success, as always we need your support to make it great!
If you would like to purchase tickets please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
