Finished Gordon’s

We arrived at the competition at 12:30 pm. We unpacked the trailer and then had opening parade. The pl’s (patrol leader’s) had to fall in for our brief on what we had to get our patrol to do. In the Barn were I went to get my instructions there was a thermometer there It was 9.5 degrees in the barn. We were told that we can no start taking the stuff up to the camp that is our camp site for the weekend. We were team number 7 and had to find site number 7 which landed up being rite at the top of the hill. We then started taking the stuff up to the camp site there was a differences to the other Gordon’s I had being on the difference being that we had to get every thing to the camp in two trips.   We then set up camp I went to go do a base for the patrol leader’s which was marksman ship with a air rifle which I was very good at and scored 7 out of 10 for. We then made supper and went to go do a lot of  knight bases. The Patrol leaders final meeting was at 23:00 hrs. I then went back to our camp I set my bed up and got my patrol to go to sleep. Some time during the night my sleeping bag got water in by the feet part which was annoying but I got a few hours sleep. I woke the patrol up a 05:30. We stated making breakfast at 06:30 for the judges to judge at 07:00. the rest of the day went well. We had a lot of fun it was very cold and rained the whole weekend but it was good.  WE  CAME  22  OUT  OF  27  TEAMS  WHICH  WAS  GOOD.



So tomorrow is the big day we leave the scout hall at 10:00 hrs in the morning. That will mark the start of the Gordon’s scout comp for us this year. Will ad-least for the other members of the patrol my comp started on Monday with all the paper work an stuff I had to do.

This past Friday

The past Friday my family and I went to visit my grandpa. We stayed there most of the day. When we arrived home I went to visit some people I know on the property I live on. On my way up I heard crackling in the bush like a stick braking so I said to the people that we must go have a look. So We my group scouter and my one older friend Patrick went to look in the bush I saw a person in the bush. I took chase but could not catch him when he ran I noticed that he threw down a box that belonged to us.  The group scouter phoned my dad. shortly after that my dad rocked up to pick us up we then went round on the road and saw this guy run into a open piece of ground so Patrick got out the car and took chase and caught the guy we took him to the police station.  That’s were I spent four hours of my Friday night.

The vlei is starting to fill up again so soon sailing will start for me again and I can start posting about the sailing I am doing.
