We have a new patrol!!!

On Friday evening, we officially divided the Guide Company into two patrols: The Kingfishers and the Cape Robins. Jamie is now the Patrol Leader for our new patrol, the Cape Robins, and Taryn is her Seconder. Linda is the new Seconder for the Kingfisher Patrol. Congratulations to all of you!

Tineke was enrolled as a Guide, as well, so this was quite an eventful meeting! Welcome to the family, Tineke, we’re very glad to have you!

After the ceremony, we played some inter-patrol games, the patrols wrote about themselves for the webpage, we enjoyed prizes of chocolate for the winning and second-placed patrols and as per usual, finished off with a song!





Surviving on a desert island!

20 02 2011

We had a wonderful invite-a-friend evening, although it was sad that some of our friends were unable to make it.

We enjoyed an evening on a desert island. We melted chocolate and dipped marshmallows into the chocolate. That is, the chocolate that wasn’t eaten by this stage! Delicious!

Unfortunately, some of the guides “fell” out of the coconut palms, so we had to use triangular bandages to do up their arms in slings!

After creating a compass using a needle, magnet and a bowl of water, the guides used their improvised flags to signal for help. They then had to scavenge for materials to use to knot together a “rope” to pull the rescue boat in with!

Final verdict: A good time was had by all!
