The last meeting of the year was very exciting because we had the draw of the 3 winning ticket numbers. The fundraising committee collected all the stubs sold by all the troop and put them into a box, so at the end of the meeting some of the young scouts would pick up the 3 winning tickets.

Cubs spent Saturday building, singing and getting into the Christmas Spirit!
They started the day breaking up into sixes to build a marble run out of cardboard, tubing and plastic bottles and a whole lot of tape! There was a contest to see whose marbles would defy gravity to run the slowest!
Then, after a snack and some Christmas carols, the Cubs made a Christmas candle holder by creating holiday scenes and pasting them into a jar with glitter. They turned out beautiful!
From the Cubs to you: Happy Holidays!
The meeting started with the identification of planets for the Astronautics badge. The scouts then wrote letters in English to a class of school children in Holland, and then translated them into Spanish. By doing this they earned credits towards the ‘Digital Citizen 1’ staged badge, and the ‘Communicator’ badge.
After this, they started work towards ‘Digital Maker 1’ by identifying the parts of a computer. We then worked in groups to design and develop computer games. Each group presented their game to the troup, and a vote was held to decide the winner. Ironically, the winner was ‘Last’, a survival game. The presentations also went towards the ‘Personal’ challenge badge. At the end of the activities, the scouts were then presented with ‘Digital Citizen 1’ badges, as well as other individual awards.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018!!
