Our Beavers enjoyed a fun morning quad biking under sunny skies From a slow, gentle start their confidence grew and soon they were all whizzing around the track and riding up the banks.  Good luck to driving instructors in 10 or so years time when this little lot venture out on the roads—they are fearless!

CUBS VISIT IWM DUXFORD

Sat 14th June 2014

Report by Cub Nathan P.

We had a great day at IWM Duxford. First we looked at all the planes in the Airspace Hanger and there were lots of fun exhibits that showed you how the planes worked.  We were lucky because Concorde was there and we got to go in it. On the way round we had a quiz to do, which helped get us our Air Activities badge.  Outside there were lots of planes taking off, we just missed two Spitfires taking off, but we saw lots of other planes.  Read more here….

Sunday (Day 1) Troop Day to Oeschinensee – by Stephen

After our long journey to Kandersteg the day before, we were relieved to have a late breakfast at 8 o’clock. We saw the sun rising over the valley just as we were setting off for the Oeschinensee Cable Car. We got the Cable Car up the mountain and each had our five goes on the summer toboggan run. Our wonderful leaders only had two runs each so we could have another run. We then walked down to the lake on a really steep path and had our lunch.  It was a lovely day and the view was marvellous. Tom and Ed dipped their toes into the lake before we walked around to the rowing boats.

We split up into two groups, Rob, Tom Matt and me in one boat and John, Josh, Matt and Benji in the other one. My boat rowed around the lake – literally because I am not good a rower and kept making the boat go round in circles!  John’s group made it over to the waterfall but were late back to the mooring. We walked back to the Cable Car and went back to KISC.  We were late back for dinner.  After dinner we played football with other Groups before going to bed.
