Hawks Cubs News - Sept 2013

Posted by Andrew Hobson Tuesday, 10 September 2013
It is the start of a new year in Scouting - we hope you all had an enjoyable summer break.

We currently have 18 Cubs in Tuesday Pack – 4 Cubs – Declan, Daniel, Dominic and Finlay are due to start linking with Scouts as they have reached the age of 10 ½ - we shall miss them when they do move on but wish them all the best. The next Cub does not leave us until April 2014.

As usual we should be grateful if you would all still find the time to help us via the Parent’s Rota.

During the darker nights we shall be concentrating on badge work – please encourage the Cubs to bring their work book to Pack night - some of the badges we all do together but we also ask them to find out information or carry out work at home.

We are continuing the points system we have for good behaviour, tidy and correct Uniform, attendance at Church Parade, going to District Events, volunteering for Competitions, good badge work etc. Continuous bad behaviour will result in deduction of points, a word with yourselves, no football, OR, as a last resort, they will be asked to leave to make way for someone who really wants to be with us. We have had numerous chats about behaviour and the Cubs recently came up with a list of 10 Rules - this is displayed in the Annexe and all these rules are included in the points system.

A list of future events known to date is shown below:-

  • 22nd September 2013 – Church parade at 9.30 am Mass – FULL UNIFORM PLEASE.
  • 29th September 2013 (Sunday) – Wet & Dry Adventure Day at Waddecar – this replaces the original Outward Bound Day which had been arranged at County level for older Cubs at Great Tower, Windermere – Letters with further information to be sent out in next couple of weeks to the7 oldest Cubs attending this event.
  • Sometime during October there will be a Silver Award Presentation evening for Preston Cubs.  Cubs receiving this award will be sent an invite from the District organizing team (date/times etc. to follow).
  • 9th November 2013 – Preston & District Splash Night (swimming competition) at West View.
****Details will also be out soon regarding the Cub 6-a-side football league – we hope to start up matches again at Tulketh High School early October 2013.
