Wolf Pack – Southern Explorers go golfing

Posted on September 30th, 2017 by admin

 

Recently the ‘Wolf Pack’ – Southern Explorers back at Mullin ny Carty for their first regular meeting after the Summer break.

After flag break the first order of business was (with a few suggestions from ESL Roger) to work out their own programme for the following 6 weeks. This was done outside to allow Roger assisted by Kevin Bott to set up an indoor 6 hole ‘Crazy Golf’ course.

 

 

Three teams battled it out at the first ‘MNC Open’. The final result being worked out by averaging the three team members scores.

The conclusion? “Next time, we use real golf balls.” Using ping pong balls  made each hole a par 47 on average as they went everywhere!

They then distributed water, juice, power bars and jaffa cakes to the riders as they came by.

Some of the riders who did not want to stop

Posted on September 30th, 2017 by admin

Over the weekend of the 22 August Scouts and leaders from Malew and Ballaugh plus ‘Wolf Pack’ – Southern Explorers and Northern Explorers invaded the Island to participate in this years Steam Railway Island at War event.

Several activities were run for the information and amusement of rail passengers and visitors alike. These included, tea and cakes, a Teddy bear hospital, a ‘Give old Adolph one in the eye with a wet sponge’, a test your knowledge of WW2 and a “How much do you think a weeks ration was”?

Many Scouts and leaders were dressed up in 1940’s uniform to add to the wartime feel and everyone had a good (if a bit wet) day.

On Sunday Scouts, Explorer Scouts, members of Scout Network, Scout Active Support, Leaders and Parents prepared the info bags for the MGP marshals. Over 20  people, representing Manx Scouting from across the Island, spent a couple of hours stuffing info, hats and lanyards into bags to be distributed to the marshals.

Special thanks to all from Roger Birtles. “It’s the best turnout in the 5 years we’ve been doing this.”

Many hands definitely made short work of the around 1,000 bags.
