Wow three days of activities already almost over...

Monday was the first day of activities, the Cub Scouts rotate through the activity bases, meals and showers. For some the bump in and first day was a challenge - there were some tired faces at the meal table but by the time the music started at the disco they had found their 'second wind'.

The first whale watching was a bit rough on Monday and there were a few 'sickies' but they perked up somewhat once back on land. Tuesday's boat trip was calmer but both groups have managed to see whales and some super excited Cub Scouts... the third Village is still offsite so yet to hear of their adventures.

The second day of the activities saw some tweaks and modifications but the weather was kind and actually very hot! Sunscreen has been regularly applied and of course they are all wearing their Cuboree hats. Today has been overcast but pleasant enough without any rain.

The Leaders are starting to get the routine but are tired and let's face it we stick people from all over Queensland with different needs in a small space and take away all their creature comforts and expect them to all play nicely...

Sometimes Scouting is an interesting social experiment!

Cuboree 2016 is operating smoothly enough for the third day - the catering team DC Catering https://www.facebook.com/cateringbyDC/ are keeping us well fed, the amazing activity team are keeping us active. Welfare is looking after us all too - but luckily there hasn't been not too much for them to do!!!

Last night was movie night and tonight is campfire - then there is only one more day of activities before closing ceremony... it's gone so quick. Thanks KAA and your team for making such a great event for us all to enjoy.

The Cub Scouts have been so well behaved (well mostly) and polite. They are a credit to their parents, families and Leaders...
