Congratulations to all who voted for 2nd Armidale Scout Group in the online Greater Armidale Fund Awards. On Friday we received our $3000 cheque from the Greater Bank in Armidale. Thanks also to the Greater Bank and their fund to support community groups in Armidale and surrounds.
From 3 to 7 January, there were 7 cub scouts from Armidale and two leaders who joined about three thousand other youth and adult leaders at the Cuboree. This was a big cub camp for all of NSW. It was a great event.
It’s a busy time for Grey Wolf cubs at 2nd Armidale. This group was recently at Wollomombi Gorge for Abigail’s walk. We are looking forward to another walk at Dangar’s Falls this weekend.
2nd Armidale cubs, scouts and parents visited the Armidale and District Amateur Radio Club to participate in the 2016 Jamboree on the Air (JOTA).
Cubs at 2nd Armidale recently hosted a crew from the NSW State Emergency Service for some 1st Aid training and added bonus of observing a training rescue from a motor vehicle. Thanks SES Armidale.
Two patrols from our scout troop competed at the North West Region Rally 2016. One of these took out first place as the champion patrol. This patrol was led by PL Dylan Knox, who also took the champion patrol leader prize. Our second patrol took third place. This is a fantastic effort for Scouts Armidale and congratulations to scouts from both patrols for your performance. A photo of the winning patrols will be posted soon.
The Region Scout Rally is being held from Friday 8 April to Sunday 10 April 2016 at Kamilaroi Scout Camp (near Copeton Dam). We had a great time last year, and hope to field a full compliment of patrols this year!
2nd Armidale Troop enjoyed the region rally in 2015.
