Tuesday Scouts Hike 23rd October

Tuesday Scouts got out for their first hike of the year to Cloontykilla Castle recently. The weather was kind to us for the most part of the day. An easy flat hike to start with, it will hopefully be the first of many taking us into the countryside and mountains over the next 6-8 months.

On Sunday 9 October, our Monday Cubs took part in a hike on the Bricklieves, from the Carrowkeel Tombs in Castlebaldwin to Ballinafad. Whilst the hike was a challenge for everyone, a very enjoyable day was had by the cubs, leaders and parents that took part, despite the damp and windy conditions. A few photos below.

Boyle Scouts Uniforms

Boyle Scouts are asking any household that may have unwanted Scout Uniforms to please donate them back to us.
This will enable us to provide Uniform items to our youth members at a much lesser cost than purchasing new ones while also raising a few euros for Scouting in Boyle. Uniform items such as Neckerchiefs, Woggles, Beaver/Cub Jumpers, Scout shirts, Scout belts or any of the Scouting Ireland trousers will be gratefully accepted.
Items can be dropped into meetings in the Sports Complex at any time on Monday evenings 7.00 - 9.30pm, Tuesdays 7.00 - 9.45pm or Wednesdays 8.30 - 10.00pm. Alternatively you can contact any of the following: Beth 086 8569374, Stephanie 086 8419156 or Angela 086 3560389.

RTE Cameras to visit Boyle Scouts

A few Boyle Scouts pictured below getting their Camping Equipment prepared for Tuesday 4th October, when RTE visit us to make a short documentary on our Camping and Scouting activities.
Boyle Scouts will be be involved on Tuesday next, 4th October with an RTE Camera Crew in making a short documentary on Camping and Scouting Activities in and around the Boyle area. The documentary is being made for the National Lottery to showcase Scouting Ireland as an ongoing beneficiary of National Lottery Funding.
Filming will take place with our Scouts in a number of secret locations on Tuesday afternoon and evening!!!
The outdoor cooking and camping skills of our Scouts, and our excellent Campsite and facilities available at Lough Keel will all feature in front of the cameras.
We also intend to strongly promote the many great activities available in Lough Key and in the Boyle area for visiting Scouts, Guides and all Youth Groups.
Many people may not realise that the tourist attraction that is our Lough Keel Scout Campsite brought almost 3000 camping visitors to the Boyle area throughout 2011 with those visitors between them staying almost 6000 days and nights in the area.
