Hop Tu Naa Night

Halloween

1st Marown Cub Scouts

Next week’s meeting will be Hop-Tu-Naa themed, so we will devote the night to:

Fancy Dress – it would be great if your child can come in fancy dress! (Optional)

Halloween themed games

Pumpkin Carving (can any parents help us with this please?)

Ducking Apples – please send an alternative if your child doesn’t like apples

The following week will be half term, so no meeting, but please make a note that Sunday 8th November is Remembrance Sunday and the Cubs will lay a wreath at Marown Church Memorial – details, time etc. at our meeting on 6th November.

On 13th November, we visit the Peel Swimming Pool to work on the Swimmer Badge, and to pick our team for the Supersplash on Saturday 14th, at Ramsey Pool.

Can I suggest you arrange car sharing between you so that not everybody needs to take their car.

Grand Day Out

1st Marown Scouts

Grand Day Out – Sunday 18th October

Dear Parents,

The Scout Association Isle of Man is organising a Grand Day Out for all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders on Sunday 18th October at the NSC Douglas. This will be an opportunity for us all to get together, have some fun and celebrate Scouting.

Each section will take part in a variety of different activities, some indoors, some outdoors, and the day will finish with a short closing ceremony, which parents, grandparents, friends and family are invited to attend.

The closing ceremony will take place in the NSC grandstand, and start at 3.30pm, finishing by 4.00pm. If it is very wet, it will take place in the main sports hall instead.

The children will need to bring with them a drinks bottle, packed lunch, a waterproof coat, and should wear their uniform and trainers. Please make sure that all of these items are named. The Scout Association Isle of Man is covering the cost of the day, and so there is no charge for the day.

A bus will be leaving from Marown School at 9.45am prompt, and therefore we ask that you drop your child off at Marown School between 9.30am and 9.35am. We will be unable to wait for late arrivals.

Children should be dropped off at the main sports hall at the NSC Douglas at 10.00am.

The event will finish at 4.00pm and all children should be collected from the NSC outside grandstand. Please note that there is NO transport back home, as we hope that as many parents as possible will come along and take part in the closing ceremony. If it is very wet, the children should be collected from the main sports hall instead.

If your child would like to take part in this event, please return the permission slip below to your child’s leader by Friday 9th October.

Yours in Scouting

Paul Craine

Wet n Wild

1st Marown Wet n Wild Slide

Programme 21.08.2020

This week we are going ‘Wet n Wild’ for the last of our Summer Activity nights.

The meeting will be at Braddan Park at the same location as the grass sledging was held.

Cubs and Scouts should bring a washing up liquid bottle, or water pistol /super soaker and come dressed to get wet.

We will be supplying either burgers or hot dogs and juice, but if any children have special dietary requirements, they can bring their own food/crisps etc.

The evening will start at 6:30 and will go ahead regardless of weather, we will finish when everyone has had enough sliding/squirting, or no later than 8:00pm – whichever comes first.

There will be a gazebo for changing, so we suggest they bring a change of clothing.

There will be an opportunity for the Scouts to finish their ‘Survival Skills’ Badge on Friday/Saturday 4/5th September at MYC. The Scouts will plan their own menu and cook from scratch, light fires, build a shelter and sleep overnight in it, with Bernie and Paul staying nearby to supervise.

More info to follow, but can we ask that the Scouts use their WhatsApp Group to plan their menu, and arrange who is buying what please.

All the leaders hope the Cubs and Scouts have enjoyed the activities provided over the past 12 months, and are looking forward to bringing another year of fun and engaging programmes.

Steam Train Trip

Train Trip

Programme 14.08.2020

This week, two activities have been arranged; one of the Cubs and another for the Scouts – however, the children may attend both events if they wish.

For the train trip we meet in uniform at 9:40 at Douglas Railway Station, bringing a packed lunch and a jacket in case of bad weather. We return to Douglas at 5:00pm. Parents and accompanied siblings are welcome to join us on the basis that they are separate for Scout insurance reasons.

Parents will need to purchase a child ‘Explorer Pass’ at £8.50 each to enable us to get off at Castletown, then get back on later to continue to Port Erin.

We meet at 6:30 for the cycle ride to Peel, returning by around 8:30. Again Parents are welcome to join us if they wish.

For those children unable to make a return ride on their bikes, arrangements can be made to leave them in Peel Scout HQ for later collection. Please bring appropriate clothing, a drink and a snack.

Any child who would like to borrow a bike, please contact Bernard on 313612 in advance.

 

Apemann

1st Marown at Apemann

Programme 07.08.2020

This week Cubs and Scouts have a session at ApeMann Adventure Playground, South Barrule Plantation.

The session is from 6:30 – 8:15 and the cost will be £10 for the low course, £15 for the high course (10 and over)

Can everyone bring insect repellent and a drink please.

Next Week

Next week we have planned a trip on the Steam Train to Port Erin and back for the Cubs and a cycle ride to Peel and back (for those who can make it). This will count towards the Cyclist Badge.

Scouts are welcome to join the Cubs on the train trip, and Cubs can join the Cycle ride if they wish. Cubs need to only cycle to Peel to gain their badge, where Scouts will need to do the return trip.

The cost of the train trip will be £8.50 for children and £17 for adults. A packed lunch will be required.

We meet at 9:45 at Douglas station, returning on the 5:00pm service. For the cycle ride we start from Marown School at 6:30, returning at around 8:30pm.

Bikes are available so long as we know in advance, please speak to Bernard 07624313612.
