Beaver Scouts from 1st Douglas Buggane, Onchan Thursday and Peel took part in the five-a-side football competition held on Sunday 20th January at the Tommy Clucas Sports Hall in Peel.
Each Colony entered more than one team, so in total there were seven teams. Each team played all of the others and there were some very exciting games. Over the course of the afternoon 50 goals were scored. Points were awarded as in the football league and the top two teams then played again in a final.
Before the final a penalty competition was held. Jake, a Cub Scout from Peel, agreed to be the goalkeeper and every Beaver Scout took turns to try to score a penalty against him. Those who were successful went through to the next round to try to beat the goalie again. Three Beaver Scouts tied for first place. They were Rafferty from Peel, Fynlo from Onchan and Dylan from Onchan.
Peel A team and Onchan Thursday A team were the top two teams so played each other in the final. Both teams played brilliantly and it looked as though there would be no score at full time. However, in the final few seconds of the game Onchan scored.
All the Beavers in the final were awarded medals as were the three Beavers who won the penalty contest. The winners, Onchan A team, were presented with the Football Shield and a replica and Peel A team received a runners up shield.

At their Monday night meeting at Mullin ny Carty the Explorers of the ‘Wolf pack’ turned out of the hall to do some camp fire cooking namely noodles and sausage.
Whilst this was going on leaders Roger and Henry set up an indoor ‘giant pool’ game. Using tennis balls and a soft ball as the cue ball and broom handles for cues.

Well done to those Beavers who attended the Lawn Bowls Competition in Onchan Park on Saturday 7 July. It was a slightly misty start, but that didn’t hinder performance or enjoyment.
Eight Beavers from both the 2nd Onchan Tuesday Colony and the 2nd Onchan Thursday Colony played two rounds of Lawn Bowls Activities – nearest the jack, in between the cones, hitting the marker etc. It was great fun and really well organised by volunteers and members of the Onchan Lawn Bowls Club in Onchan Park.
Once the two rounds had been played, two Beavers from each Colony with the highest scores then played against each other in the Final. Taylor and Oliver from the Tuesday Colony and Malane and Jayden from the Thursday Colony. They all completed one round of Activities – it was very close but the winner by one point was Oliver from the 2nd Onchan Tuesday Colony with Malane from the Thursday Colony in second place.
Oliver received the Lawn Bowls Beaver Trophy 2018 from Bev Hewson (Assistant Island Commissioner – Beavers), and everyone taking part received medals. It was a lovely morning, supported by family members. Thank you very much to the Lawn Bowls Club for hosting the group and they hope to be back next year to do it all again.

Explorers, leaders and adult helpers did their bit to ensure the smooth running of this years Tynwald day celebration.
The ‘Wolf Packs’ patch was the traders car park and by the end of the morning they had perfected numerous ways of directing the public to a parking spot. The one using an Explorer as a ‘sign board’ increased visibility but did nothing for the arm muscles!

The IOM TT/MGP Association has again asked for our assistance to fill the information packs given to everyone marshalling at this years Manx Grand Prix.
This is open to Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, leaders, helpers and parents.
The only uniform required is your necker.
Meet at the rear of the TT Grandstand for 10am Sunday, 12th. August.
We are usually finished by lunchtime. Obviously the more hands the faster the job gets done! Also, there is usually a ‘goodies bag’ for participants.
The TT/MGP association really appreciate the help of the Scouts as we do in 2 to 3 hours what used to take them a week!

You may have noticed more resources and communications signposting members to advice about Carbon Monoxide (CO). Following on from this we have developed a simple poster which can be downloaded and used at Scout Campsites and premises to remind people of the risks related to CO.
It would be great if you could get this displayed within your property, download it here or email email@example.com if you would like a version to supply to your local printer.
