Birkenhead Gang Show – 24th February 2017

Posted on November 15th, 2016 by admin

 Gaiety Theatre

Please pass the information to any leaders who:
– are not on Facebook
– do not read the manxscouts.com website
– were not represented at the recent GSL meeting
The producers & directors of the Birkenhead Gang Show spoke with a group of leaders recently and they started rehearsals in Birkenhead recently. Although they have a plan of what the Isle of Man cast members will be doing it will greatly depend on how many cast members there are. Although they could work with 2 or 3, more performers would give them much more scope. They would be in the opening and closing numbers as well.
 
The plan is for the director to come to the island for a weekend in December (date to finalised). Please contact Colin Brew, Janet McCabe or Gil Salway with the list of cast members or if you have any questions.
 ­

What is required:

­

Cast

A minimum of 2 members of each group, Cubs or Scouts, but can be more if they are keen to be part of it (Sorry no Beavers) and 2 Explorers per Unit.
 ­

Crew

6 x Backstage – leaders/network members (over 18s only)
5 x Runners – these could be Explorers (we have 1 volunteer so far)
4 x Adult Dressers – female preferably (we have 3 volunteers so far)
6 x Front of House per performance (these could be Active Support members)
6 x Make Up
4 x Chaperones (over 18s only)
 
This is the desired numbers, they can work with a few less and they can always find roles for more if necessary. However they would prefer to sell any extras tickets and make the audience even bigger!
 
Cubs or Scouts who take part in the show as cast will qualify for their Entertainer Badge, any Explorers who are in the cast will get the Performing Arts Badge.

Joint Founder’s Day/Thinking Day a Great Success

Posted on February 22nd, 2016 by admin

flagsAbout 100 young people from all sections of Scouting and Girlguiding  on the Isle of Man gathered on Sunday at St. George’s Church in Douglas.

“All 5 sections of Scouts were represented together with many leaders and parents. Lots of standards were presented making a lovely colourful parade.”, said Scouting’s Island Commissioner Guy Thompson. “VIP guests attended, it all raises the profile of Scouting and Guiding on the Island.”

One of the organisers of the service was Julie Leece, a leader of both Scouts and Rainbows  (the youngest section in GirlGuiding). “It was great to see Beavers through to Active Support there.” 

Thank you to all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts, Network, Active Support and Leaders that attended on what turned out to be a very wet day. Special thanks to the many standard bearers and those who took part in the service. You all made Manx Scouting proud.

Two Ways to get involved with the Douglas Carnival

Posted on July 14th, 2015 by admin

There are two urgent request for Manx Scouting to get involved with the Douglas Carnival

Represent Manx Scouting in the parade

It would be great to see as many members of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Active Support and leaders as possible joining in the parade in full uniform and showing the Island how fantastic Scouting is.

We need to meet 6 15pm on Sea Cliff Road in Onchan (White City).

Julie Leece would also appreciate help in decorating in the float if anyone is available on Saturday morning.

Island at War – Vintage Buses

The Isle of Man Transport are taking 9 vintage buses on the Douglas carnival procession this Saturday. One bus dedicated to Island at War.  The bus is being driven by Tim Vaughan (in uniform) with others riding as passengers.

If you wish to come along and join in the carnival fun, simply turn up at Banks Circus by 5:45pm for a 6pm start. We will take the buses up to the Port Jack end of the prom and join with all the floats for the parade along the prom at 7pm.

The bus should be back at Banks Circus for 8pm.
