We had Venturers off doing an abseil course.
We had a badge work and trailer packing day today.
Lastly we also had a few of our scouts off doing a gwsr bushwalking weekend as a training tool.

#DisasterChef 2017 was a HUGE success tonight.
5 patrols of 6 had a Mystery box of ingredients to cook up a 2 course meal in under 2 hours and then fully clean up.
Main meal was won by the patrol who cooked "Kim Jong-Un" Asian Style meal and desert was "crabby patty".
Thanks to our guests 1st Cambridge Park Scout group and their leaders Tumbles, Taz and Mow for joining us.
Kudos also to the 2 Venturers for coming along to help too.

Tinonee - You've outdone yourself with all the effort you put into organising tonight.
