District Cub Bowling

On Tuesday 6th November 10 teams from across the District competed for the 10 Pin Bowling competition. Defending champions 1st Whitehouse were keen to retain the trophy but despite some excellent bowling they unable to take the trophy home as 1st Ballyclare stormed to the title with an impressive 569 points! The top bowler of the night was Grace from 1st Linn who helped her team come in second place.

I have also been able to get out around the District this month and have been highly impressed with the level of Scouting and the diversity in the programmes. It has been incredibly positive to see so many new faces in the leadership teams and getting the opportunity to develop these relationships.

Our next Cub event will be the district quiz in Ballyclare in January of 2019. There is no date confirmed for the quiz at the moment, but the social dodgeball night will be going ahead in Cloughfern on Friday 22nd of February. More details to follow.

I have already spoken to some of you about this in person, but the ACC for Cubs, Sharon Smith, has asked me for some ideas for a Cub Fun Day in 2019 as well as floating the idea of a leaders skills day. Sharon is looking for any ideas which people may have for additional training, this could be anything from practical Scouting skills to admin to Special Needs training. If you could contact me through email or speak to me in person when I visit with your suggestions.
