Oo's Blog!

Movie and popcorn night

22 May 2014

– blog entry jointly written by Sara “Oo” and Neil “Ziggy”

Heavy rain and elections were no match for the Carlton Cubs who took it all in their stride and instead of games on the Millennium Green a movie night entertained instead.

We opened as normal in “horse-shoe” and then talked briefly about why we were inside, upstairs in the main church hall instead of the basement which was being used as a polling station. This led onto a discussion about polling and what it was about which in turn led onto a short, quick fire quiz with the Cubs asked to name a country in Europe.

During this time, the Scout Troop and their Leaders were setting up the projector and laptop to show a movie. All cubs voted on which film to watch (several options were given) and a decision reached to watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid

All cubs sat quietly and were engrossed in the film – with popcorn 🙂

 At the end of the evening, we closed as normal. One of our new Cubs (recently moved up from Beavers) brought some lego models he’d built to present to the Pack as evidence of his Hobbies Activity Badge.



During closing we reminded the Cubs about the upcoming RhubarbFest in Carlton Village this weekend.Rhubarbfest 2014 Facebook-2

There’s no meeting next week due to school half term 🙂

The week after, 5th June, Green and Red Sixes get to visit the West Yorkshire Police CarrGate HQ!

(Yellow and Blue Sixes already attended last Thursday evening)
