Our first post!

1st Randburg Scouts on the tower they built.
Scouts started the on 14th January 2011. It was great to see all the scouts ready for the year ahead.

We spent some time during our meeting creating a Box Tower. There was allot of team work in creating the tower and I hope that the scouts can one day create this tower within 10 minutes. It has been done in the past by Scouts so 10 minutes is definitely possible.

We have some great activities planned for this term so I hope all will be able to attend. The activity we are looking forward to the most is Gauteng’s Annual Kontiki Competition. Scouts from all over the province compete in a weekend of challenges with the main one being building a Kontiki raft on which the scouts have to stay on for 24 hours. Kontiki is held every year on the first weekend of March at Murray Park in Springs. Visit Gauteng’s Kontiki website to find out more.
