As is traditional, on remembrance Sunday representatives from the whole of 2nd Uxbridge Scout Group joined the local community and other community groups for the remembrance service at St Margarets Church. Due to this year being the 100th Anniversary of the breakout of WW1, a parade was arranged from the RAF base, through the town centre and on to the memorial at Marjacks Roundabout. It was great to see such a large number of people out to honour our fallen service men and service women.
This years Family Camp was held over the weekend of the 22nd, 23rd and 24th June 2012. Although there have been some changes amongst the Leaders everything was much as it usually was. Mark and Chris did a great job organising the camp and we had a very good new team running the catering. Thanks very much to everyone who helped make the weekend such a success.
Another very successful family camp in glorious sunshine. We had the usual numbers of about 120 camping and this year, the Annual General Meeting was held at the camp. I am sure that you will agree a great time was had by all.
We had another very successful Family Camp over the weekend of the 26th, 27th and 28th of June at Bears Rails Scout Camp in Windsor Great Park. We had glorious weather for all three days and everyone had a great time. We also held our Annual General Meeting at the camp and special thanks go to those people who volunteered to help to run the Group.
Family camp is always a very popular event and this year was no exception, over 160 people camped despite the wet weather. The traditional Saturday evening camp fire was replaced with a bingo session inside and the rain did not help the hot air balloons but they still flew as you will be able to see. This was the first year that we had wet weather in about 10 years ! Everyone took part in the various events that were laid on and all seemed to have had a good time.
The competition was held, as usual, at Longridge Scout Boating Centre on the Thames near Marlow, Bucks. The weather was not as good as in previous years but everyone had a great time. As there were only three Explorer scout entries, Discovery raced against the other two Explorer units three times and their scores were aggregated. Our mixed adult and Scout boat won their first heat but were knocked out next time. After waiting right till the end, we found out that Discovery had been placed second overall. So well done to them and to all who took part.
