Peak 2000 Hike

Our Annual Peak 2000 Fundraising Hike took place on Sliabh Ban, Strokestown on Sunday last, 21st February. Boyle Scouts had over 120 Members, Leaders and Parents taking part in the event. Weather conditions were almost perfect for hiking. It was cool and dry with a few traces of snow in places, to add to the cold feel. All were rewarded for their efforts with BBQ Burgers, Hot Dogs and Hot Chocolate at the summit. Boyle Scouts would like to thank everyone who participated and helped out on the day and to all who supported our members so generously in the fundraising effort. (A few Pictures below)
A special word of congratulations and well done to Michael Grehan who received a presentation on the day to recognise and thank him for his help in designing a new County Badge for Lough Keel Scout County. His design along with 3 others were used to formulate the final design which you can see below.

Venture and Rover Sections Paintball Trip

Our Ventures and Rovers had a day paintballing in Bray on Saturday last 20th February. The hugely popular sport proved a big hit with our sharpshooters and not so sharp!! Plenty of stories and bruises are going down in evidence of their feats! There are a few photos below of the troops.
