Junior Section November 2017
The session is now in full swing and the new boys in the section have settled well. Our youngest members have now started working towards the bronze badge, with our older boys also starting to complete their achievement awards with the aim of gaining their silver and gold badges.
As well as our Friday meetings, it has been a lively time for other events with November looking similarly busy. At the District Sports held at Scotstoun, seven boys took part in a variety of track and field events, with a number of medals won across the three ages groups. Congratulations to all the boys who participated.
In the coming weeks, we have our Halloween fancy dress party to look forward to first. On November 3, we'll be attending a sleepover event at the Science Centre organised by BB Scotland. From our attendance at two previous events in 2013 and 2015, we can probably forecast now how much sleep will be involved on the night.
November also sees our first uniformed organisations' service and parade of the session, held on Remembrance Sunday on November 12. This is an important event for Junior Section, and we'll also be hoping for good weather for the march past after the service.
Finally, our annual sledging trip with our Anchor Boys section will also be held in the coming weeks, with a visit planned to the indoor snow slope at Braehead.
