F/M Cubs took part in a Northern Beaches Joint Cub event at Manly Surf and Slide. 90 Cubs from 5 Scout Groups spent two hours sliding, swimming and mucking about on West Esplanade Beach Manly. A nice way to cool off after a 37 degree day.
Scouts, cubs and venturers from Fairlight/Manly, harbord and Balgowlah participated in the world record stargazing attempt in conjunction with the ABC stargazing programme. We had a total of 127 that watched the moon through telescopes for 10 minutes to hopefully break the world record.
One of the highlights of the year for scouts is ScoutHike. This year, the Night Owls patrol came 15th out of 213 patrols and the Bayview-Fairlight Manly activity base came second out of about 30 bases.
