KEEPER HILL CUB HIKE 19 March 2017

To the Parents,
On this Sunday 19th March we have our Annual Hike up Keeper Hill. Keeper Hill is near Newport Co Tipperary and is approx. 30 mins from here.This is an event that we like to have as many as possible attend as it is a great challenge to all the boys to complete it.It will take us 5 to 6 hrs approx. to complete it.This hike is 17.5 km long and while its difficult in parts it is one that the boys will be able to complete. It is all forest path the whole way to the top. The last section to the top is a little uneven under foot
We would hope that as many as possible attend this.
The following are the details
1. Meet Scout hall 9-30am sharp (Transport is required)
2. Hiking Gear required as follows (Hiking Boots or shoes, Rain Jacket, Waterproof pants, No Jeans, Hiking socks, Warm clothes,Hoodie,hat,Gloves,Scarf,Change of clothes for end of hike)
3. No Fizzy Drinks
4. Sandwiches, Chocolate, Bananas, Fruit, Water or any drink as long as it’s not fizzy, some lads like to carry flasks of tea/coffee/soup to have at the top. Please make sure they have plenty of food and drinks.
5. A good and proper hiking bag. One that supports the back and has plenty of side pockets and hip support. Make sure it fits properly as one that is too big makes it very uncomfortable for the boys trying to carry it that distance.
6. Allowing for a 5 hour hike starting no later than 9-30am we should be down the mountain no later than 3-30pm at worst.
7. For those picking up your kids at the scout hall afterwards we will sent out a text as we are leaving the car park at Keeper Hill allow us 25 to 30 mins to get back to Scout Hall
NB PRESENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT THE WEATHER FOR KEEPER HILL ON SUNDAY IS MAINLY DRY ALL DAY WITH A RISK OF A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS BUT COLD ESPECIALLY AT THE TOP OF THE HILL.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT SHOULD THE WEATHER TAKE A TURN FOR THE WORST WE WILL CANCEL IT AT THE VERY LAST MOMENT IF NEED BE.THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE IS NUMBER ONE.
If you require any other details please contact after 2pm any day
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday

CSA CUBS PRESENTATION 2016

Tonight was a very special night for 9 of our scouts who received their CSA which they earned while in cubs last year.
The night was made extra special for the boys as we had our Chief Scout Christy McCann in attendance to present the boys with their award.It was great that the Chief Scout took time to come along and made it such a great occasion.We also had our County Commissioner Theresa Kiely TJ O Donnell and county cub commissioner in attendance too.
Also present on the night was our own group Leader Des Mckeown and leaders form other sections in the group as well as committee members.The boys had family members in the hall as well.It was great to see so many in the hall
Before the CSA was presented we presented the boys who took party in the County Cub Monopoly run with their certs for the event
And so to the presentation of the CSA to the boys.Our group Leader,County Commissioner and Chief Scout all made speeches and congratulated the boys.The boys Facilitator Claire gave a run down on what the boys had done to receive this award.And finally our Chief Scout presented each of the boys with their CSA Certificate and badge.
The night finished with a little celebration party for all.
At this stage I must take time to congratulate the 9 boys Tom,Dylan,Eoghan,Jack,Rory,Jack,Michael,Jake and James on receiving this award.We the leaders are so proud of you and the effort put into getting this award was exceptional and you are most deserving of this award. We are so glad that the Chief Scout was able to present the awards to you.We are sorry to see you leaving us but we have had some great times an memories with you.Thanks to your parents who were always their to help us out.We hope that you now go on to enjoy your time in scouts and hopefully you will come along to some of the cub events and help us out in the future.
CONGRATS AGAIN BOYS

A massive thank you to our Chief Scout for making the journey down and presenting the awards.
I cannot finish without thanking all my leaders who have worked so hard with me throughout the last 3 years and especially the last 9 months to make this CSA come through for the boys.
