Scouts this week – quiz and panto

The district quiz is on this Thursday, 2nd February (not last Thursday as we originally told you) so there is still an opportunity to join in.

If you want to take part in the district quiz as a 1st Ben Rhydding team then come along and join us on Thursday evening.

We will meet at 19:15 sharp at Otley Methodist Church, and you should be collected at 21:00. Full uniform must be worn.

If you are going to the Panto on Friday night, don’t forget that we are meeting outside the tourist information centre at 19:00 and you should be collected from the same place at the end of the Panto.

If you are not going to the Panto on Friday, then there is no Scout meeting this week.

Pantomime & Ice Skating

The Scouts are planning a trip to the Panto and Ice Skating

On Friday 3rd February we are planning to go and watch the Upstagers 2012 Pantomime, and on Friday 10th February we plan to go ice skating.

Please click on the link below to open a letter and permission form for these two activities.

Summer Camp – Closing Date and Parents Meeting

As you will have seen from the Summer Camp circular, the closing date for deposits to be paid is Friday 13th January 2012.

Camp this year is a fantastic opportunity to spend two weeks in The Netherlands, spending time with our Dutch friends (many of which you will have met on last year’s camp) and to experience a week camping and a week living in the home of a Dutch family during the hospitality week in The Hague.

We appreciate that before signing up to camp you may have some questions.  Therefore, there will be a parents meeting on Friday 13th January at 20:45 in the Scout Hut.  The meeting is for anyone considering going to camp and parents of those already signed up to go.  It will be an opportunity for us to give you more information about camp, and for you to ask any questions.  You will be able to sign up to camp and leave the deposit at the end of meeting.

For more information and a copy of the first circular, please click here.

We really hope as many Scouts are able to go to Holland as possible, and look forward to seeing you at the meeting on Friday.

 

Happy New (Scouting) Year

HNY, or as I prefer to say, Happy New Year!

Please note, Scouts starts back today (6th January) at the normal meeting time.  We will be at the Scout Hut and you should come in uniform.

There are a couple of things to remember:

1. The deadline for Hag Dyke is today.  Please bring your money and form.

2. Places for Big Camp are limited, so get your money and form brought back to Scouts as soon as possible to reserve your place.

3. The deadline for Summer Camp in Holland is Friday 13th January.  There will be a parents meeting to explain more about camp on 13th January (more details to follow this weekend) and you will be able to sign up for it then.

The new programme for this term will be posted here as soon as it is finalised.

We look forward to seeing you all for the start of a fantastic year of Scouting.
