Third term is a busy term with a large amount of Springbok Community Service as our Springbok Scouts work their way towards achieving the highest award possible for a scout.
The term also sees the first Leadership Development Course 2 which is a requirement for advancement. Scouts who have been requested to register earlier in the year should please do so as a matter of urgency. LDC 1 was a fun course and we expect LDC 2 to be equally enjoyable.
Four of our scouts will be attending the World Scout Jamboree which is being held in the USA. This gathering of some 50 000 scouts from countries around the world is a fanastic opportunity to meet scouts from other countries and gain a better understanding of other cultures.
Importantly we have Gordon Shield this term and the competition is preceded by two days of training on two weekends. As usual we plan to send at least 2 teams. This competition is the premier scout competition in the Western Cape and takes place at Hawequas.
After Gordon Shield there are badge courses, community service, the orienteering competition for an afternoon and the term wraps up with a troop overnight hike.
