Operation Founder 2017

Posted on March 17th, 2017 by Jon Launder

2nd Tonbridge Scouts and leaders took part in Operation Founder an all day incident challenge for Scouts, Guides, Explorers and Senior Section.

The 2nd and 7th ran the Dunks Green base and had a windy day of it with the gazebo attempting to fly off on several occasions. Eventually all was securely tied down to fences and vehicles with our Scout knots were put into good practice!

The 2nd Scouts section enetered 3 teams of 7 members which was a great turn out. They came were joint 11th, 24th and 28th in the competetion. Ridgeway Explorers also enetered a team for the first time.

Scouts Bike Ride

Posted on September 24th, 2016 by admin

Scouts, Leaders and Parent Helpers left HQ, rode through Long Meade, Slade, Haysden Country Park to the Leigh Flood Barrier and back. Everyone had a great fun navigating the offroad sections in the pitch black and the Scouts made fantastic time and all did very well. Only Nick the Scout Leader sufferred a puncture but repaired it in record time and caught the Troop up again before they knew it.

For pictures from the night see the album.

Scouts @ District Camp

Posted on July 17th, 2016 by admin

19 Scouts attended the District camp at Adamswell, they enjoyed the following activities:

  • 11km hike from Adamswell to Groombridge and Harrisons Rocks and back. Those that found it hard persevered and kept pushing on.
  • Abseiling tower where even those who didn’t descend went to the top of the tower and overcame their fears.
  • Aerial runway followed by blindfolded aerial runway descents!
  • Camp fire songs and skits.
  • Undefeated tug of war champions not only beating all other groups individually but beating all other groups combined at the end too!☺
  • Self sufficient washing up and drying – yes they can do it!
  • Put up and struck down tents and camp which is a long, tiring and arduous process.

There were lots of great moments throughout and my two favorite quotes from the weekend were ‘Will tomorrow be as awesome as today?’ and ‘Do you always have this fantastic food at camps?’

Check out the photos.
