Fitness Challenge

Fitness Challenge

We have a challenge aimed at Cubs, but no reason why the Scouts couldn’t join in too.

The challenge will run for two weeks and during that time you need to improve your results.

You can download the form Cub Scout Fitness Challange (PDF) or Cub Scout Fitness Challange (Word) but if you don’t have a printer, no problem, you can write everything down on paper and send a picture.

The downloaded chart has links you can click to find out how to complete each challenge.

If you think it’s too easy, or too hard, the targets can be adjusted, but please check with a leader first.

Everyone who completes the challenge will get a badge, or Scouts a woggle.

Nearly forgot, please feel free to post pictures of your child doing the challange on our Facebook Group.

Any questions, just ask a leader.


Visit to IOM Observatory Cancelled

Isle Of Man Observatory

Instructions for the 1st Marown Cubs and Scouts visit to the Isle of Man Observatory on Friday 5 March

Warm clothing is to be worn as the dome is the same temperature as outdoors.
Small torches are recommended when walking from the car park to the front door (found on the right of the observatory), but please do not use them once inside, or if we go outside for viewing.

The lane to the Observatory is hard to find and only wide enough for one vehicle – so please observe the following requests:
1 Car share if possible.
2. Drivers, please be at the observatory by 18:20 to ensure a prompt start.
3. Then remain in the car park until all the other drivers have arrived. This will ensure that the cars are not meeting each other head-on.
4. If the driver is unsure where the observatory is, it is highly recommended that they drive past the entrance lane in daylight.
5. Please visit the following link to make sure that the location of the observatory is known as well as the route – this is an excellent link with a map and Google Street View etc.
8. Please be at the observatory by 20:25 for pickup.
9. Then wait in the car park until all drivers have arrived.

Mr Carl Hough will give talks to cover the astronomy badges for the Cubs and Scouts. We will all be able to look through the observatory’s telescope (clear sky’s allowing).
Hopefully we will have clear skies and a good night of seeing some planets and stars.

Did you know: The Isle of Man has been visited by three of the twelve astronauts that walked on the Moon!

This visit will be re-scheduled for a later date

Cubs Zoom in for a meeting

Scout At Home

Zoom meeting for Cubs.

Please join us tomorrow – details below.

Many thanks to the Cubs who were able to join us for the Zoom meeting last Friday. For those who weren’t there – we missed you, and we hope you can make the next one.
The film Jumanji got great feedback from all the Cubs – a film well worth watching.
We still need nominations for the new Sixer so please can we have some ideas for the Cubs who have not yet voted?
The task for this week is to film 2 clips for the toilet roll challenge. 1 clip is to catch a toilet roll from the right and then throwing it to your left. The other clip is you catching it from the left and then throwing it to your right. Please feel free to involve your family and pets – if possible. Make it as funny, silly, weird and wacky as you can. Our tech-guy Joel will put it together as one film, and hopefully it will be as funny as we think it will be! Another example.
This week’s meeting will be Thursday at 6.30pm – we hope you can make it.


James Smith is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
