Car Show service to the community.

The car show was good.  There were cars, motorbikes, static engine displays, radio controlled crs, more cars, food and lots of people. The weather was even good for a change. The kitchen fly was placed so that the reflection from the Hazelwood Pondage did not damage anyones eyes. Just as well as the day was clear and the light intense.

There were faces to paint…Oh that’s why we were there!  The District Leader painted faces and we did to. We all improved as the day got older.  Butterflies and hearts anyone?

Actually we have booked in again for next year (the Hazelwood and Churchill District team has) and they have been tentativly booked also for the 20th of Feb 2010  another car show in Bairnsdale.  More faces to paint. Were coming too.

Fireworks at Trafalgar

Some of us could go to the fireworks at Trafalgar over the weekend.  We sampled cuddles, ice, heat and witnessed creativity and explosives.  So here are the pictures just to prove it. When they will upload that is.

Samars OB-P section choices

Samar has chosen the sections she would like to work through for her Olave Baden-Powell award.

Section 1 : Personal.
No ? Samar has yet to get back to me on this.
Section 2 : Practical.
No 5) Working with other Gipps Guides to really get the Unit active and moving is a real challenge for Samar. This will include her Presidency and the development of a communication medium for all to use.
Section 3: Social.
No 3) Attend the Girls Rock forum and actively participate in it. Then hold a discussion with your peer group on the reasons for this choice, what she learned and how this knowledge can be used.
Section 4 : Physical.
No 4)Swimming is a new physical activity for a period of three months. Samars ultimate Goal is to be able to canoe. During this time she be discussing her progress with the other Gipps Guides. Maybe on line through the Guides Face book too. A report will be submitted at the end of this time.

Section 5 :Service.
No 2) Initially the disadvantaged group Samar has chosen is the Parkistani community. The challenge of how Samar is to make a contribution to this group over a period of six months is yet to be decided. Once this initial part of her challenge is worked out then research and the preparation of her report can move forward.
Section 6: Further Development.
In all honesty I cannot remember what this was.
