Patrick’s Day Weekend Plans

We have a lot of upcoming events this Paddy’s Day weekend. We have our annual group shield competition camp being run by our venture section for our scout section running from the Friday evening to the Sunday. The entire group, from beavers all the way up to the ventures will be attending our traditional Patrick’s Day mass in Blackrock Church, where the group presents shamrock to the parish of Blackrock. This is an annual tradition that stretches back a long time. All the scouts and ventures that are attending the group shield camp-craft competition will be attending the mass despite the competition.

The details for the camp for scouts can be found in this letter to parents.

The group is attending the 10:30am mass in Blackrock Church, but we ask you to be there are 10:15am as there will be jobs, from bringing up the gifts to holding the flags, and distributing shamrock that we need to organise before the mass. It is without saying since the group will be representing the group that all youth members must wear full uniform. That is: black trousers, black shoes/boots, 29th Dublin Blackrock neckerchief, shirt/jumper (depending on your section).

Hope to see you all at the camp or mass this weekend. If you cannot make it have a fun and safe weekend.

Congratulations Ninja Polar Bears!

The Group Shield last weekend was a stunning success and I certainly had a great time. All three patrols did some excellent work and I hope that they all had a great time. The Ninja Polar Bears won overall and along with representing our group at the Smelvin they will be getting a prize which will be revealed tomorrow night at scouts. Well Done Guys! Emma also received the scout of the camp award as she impressed all the leaders that were present.

Thank you to Kevin for putting so much into this weekend he did a great job and I think all the Scouts had a great time. Thank you also to Kieran for coming down to perform the site inspection and to Michele for all her help over the course of the weekend, especially her stunning performance of a “person in shock” on the Emergencies base.

Hope everyone involved enjoyed themselves, I know I did!
