Rover Update 2 September 2014

Written by Region Rover Council.

Baden Powell once said, “When you want a thing done, ‘Don’t do it yourself’ is a good motto for Scoutmasters.” 
 

Magical Mystery Tour

Get your road trip playlist ready, you’re going on tour. Magical Mystery Tour that is. This years theme is Mega Music Trip, and I’m sure you plan on doing nothing less than dressing the part. Best act quick, get a car full of people together, and get your outfit ready.

BRC Meeting

We are once again on the cusp of greatness. With the next in a series of BRC meetings nearing ever closer it is time to stand up and represent our region. This BRC meeting will feature such great discussions as what we had for lunch, our plans for that evening, and other rover specific topics. If previous BRC meetings are anything to go off, fun is not a strong enough adjective to describe the experience. Beginning at 2pm, the 13th September at State Office, it will prove once again what the BRC is all about.

Ratskin

It’s like Dragonskin, but it’s not. Now I’m confused. Might be worth checking out the Golden West Region’s annual Ratskin, to see what’s it’s all about. Word on the street is that it’s like Dragonskin, but backwards. Venturers run activities for Rover, and Leaders. If you’re interested in attending, Mark Fell is organising Great Western Sydney’s efforts. His email is .

Harbour Cruise

I’m on a boat. At least I will come Harbour Cruise. This year’s Harbour Cruise is bound to an interesting one, with good versus evil pitted against one another, in a battle between heroes and villains the likes of which Rovers have yet to see. It doesn’t matter which side you’re on, as long as when that boat leaves the wharf, you’re on it.

Wiggle Moot

Blue, Green, Yellow, or Purple? Which colour will you be? Will you get tasked with waking up Geoff? Are your potatoes hot enough? Are you ready for Wiggle Moot? Situated in the ACT (don’t worry, it’s landlocked by NSW), Wiggle Moot promises to transport you back to when Greg used to be a wiggle, and when you had the coolest Dorothy tail, and Captian featherswords hat. All that’s left is for you to pick which wiggle you’re going to go as.

Waratah

Wara-who? Waratah! This years Waratah brings with it a Doctor Who theme, and with it the need for Rovers to help run activities. The activities have all been organised, so all you have to do is show up on the day. If you would like to add some poetic licence, you are free to add to the base as you see fit.
