Cubs in teams of six, where given plenty of materials and a them:
“Cubs in SPACE!”
Cubs sitting, getting prepared and listening to the competition instructions
Oh look what we found..
Perhaps we can build a satellite?
Our satellite is almost ready to launch now 🙂
We built a space station
What do we have here?
A space station of course!
National Cub Day “Jungle Magic”
Cubs had a Jungle Fever time with Jungle heat radiating down on them from clear skies. What luck and what better than to get wet.
And get wet they did, if the Cub or Kea stumbled with their promiss or law on the St. Augustine sping the wheel of fortune base. As leader’s, were well armed with water guns.
“The Volcano” racing around the volcano, go the cubs, whilst it erupts sopping wet sponges.
To the right, swinging what looks like fire round and round.
The rain held off for the Soldiers, Scouts, Guides, and general public whilst they remembered the brave, and heroic scarifies made by the soldiers of New Zealand in times of trouble gone by.
Ode of remembrance
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
The poignant last post was played by the Hutt City Brass Band.
The Parade leaving the Cenotaph, before the St. Augustine Scouts gather for a group photo.
The weather may not have been perfect, but the slide was, as Cubs, Scouts, Leaders, parents, and even a Kea, shot down the rapid running slide, which was especially built for the day.
The ride was like a torpedo run, and the kids rated it well above swimming pool slides, for the shear rush of speed, before the inevitable splash at the bottom.
Here comes someone now.
And there they go splash!
