1st Balmoral Sea Scout's two Patrols - Balmoral Kitchen Rules and The Dream Team - have done themselves, and the Group, proud with stand-out performance against Patrols from the Lower North Shore and Turrumburra Districts. 1st Balmoral achieved FIRST in the Camping section, FIRST and THIRD in Campcraft, Safety & Hygiene, SECOND in Activities and SECOND and Meals & Menus.
Overall District Camp THIRD place went to the Dream Team* and overall FIRST place to Balmoral Kitchen Rules** It will have been at least 10 years - and perhaps longer - since we have achieved such success at District Camp. All Scouts and the PL/APL's are to be congratulated on their fantastic efforts. Quite apart from 'doing well' our fabulous Scouts have enjoyed a happy and relaxed camp with lots of fun, laughter and great food.
Thank you to those parents who helped pack/unpack the trailer at either end of the weekend and a super special thank you to Simone, partner David and their incredibly helpful children who provided an extraordinary level of culinary and logistics support.
As always, a special thank you to Matthew, whose tireless enthusiasm made the weekend a huge success.
Thank you finally to David, Libby, Kim, Angela, Leone (District Scout Leader) and Peter (Distrrict Commissioner) and Leaders from East Roseville, Northbridge and 3rd Mosman Bay whose on-site input and efforts enabled our youth members to enjoy a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.
