CUBS GALTEE HIKE

On this Sunday 8th May we will be climbing the Galtees. The Galtees are approx. 50 miles 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 16 km long and while its difficult in parts it is one that the boys will be able to complete. The last section to the top is fairly steep and very uneven under foot
We would hope that as many as possible attend this. Parents are more than welcome to come with us on this hike as the more help we have on this the better.We will also be contacting some parents as we feel that some of the boys are going to struggle to get up this hill and the only way we can bring them is to have a parent with them in case they need to turn back
The following are the details
1. Meet Scout hall 8-30am sharp (Transport is required)For those without transport please bring €5 with you to cover the fuel price for the person carrying you.
2. Hiking Gear required as follows (Hiking Boots are a must, Rain Jacket, Waterproof pants, No Jeans, Hiking socks, Warm clothes,Hoodie,hat,Gloves,Scarf,Change of clothes for end of hike).Anyone arriving with the incorrect footwear will not be allowed come with us for safety reasons.
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 6 hour hike starting no later than 11am we should be down the mountain no later than 5pm at worst.
NB PRESENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT THE WEATHER FOR The GALTEES ON SUNDAY IS SHOWERY IN THE MORNING DRYING OFF IN THE AFTERNOON.

Cubs have a Ball of a time at Sixmilebridge

Our cubs had a great Indoor weekend camp at Sixmilebrige Scout hall

We arrived on Friday April 10th and as it was late when we got there we gave the boys the evening free to themselves.As is always we had a late first night.

None of us could have expected the sight that we awoke to Saturday Morning.Snow in April well thats what we had but it didn’t last long and at 11am we departed for 12O Clock Hills.This is an 8km hike with all kinds of challenges in it Forest paths,roads,hiking thru the forest on really muddy terrain, stepping stone and more.All 21 cubs got to the top and what a view from the summit.It took us 4.5 hrs to do the hike

Back to Sixmilebridge for dinner and some fun and games followed by a movie and late night feast.

The hike certainly took its toll on the cubs as by 12:00 all were sound a sleep

The boys were picked up after Breakfast Sunday morning.

Well done to all the boys and a big thank you to the 4 leaders who gave the boys such a great time
