Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

The Pioneer camp

By the time the Guides had finished practising the knots that they wanted to learn how to tie a great many had been left to learn at a later date.

The fact that the Guide were also organising a Pioneer camp should have warned the leaders what might have been forming in the Guides minds. You got it they were going to put their knots into practice and make an obsticale course while at camp. So a great deal of time was put aside learning the knots, whipping, splicing and other rope work involved in making gadgets, equipment and used in safety measures.

The Leaders paper work was up to date.The menu and rules had been created by the guides.  A Guides own organised, a campfire prepared, a night hike [complete with spooky animal noises and torches].  Camp duties and camp Patrols were up on the notice board. Along with the fire drills and emergency evacuation procedures.

As the pioneer camp drew nearer the equipment had to be sorted, the tents organised, along with the cooking equipment, Camp and Unit flags made. The World Guide Flag was packed to be taken as well. The program had been sorted out, transport arranged and food was purchased.  The camp site at Burnett Park was checked and where the camp would actually take place was arranged.  All was set.

There were a few surprises going to take place though.

Following a different route to…

Some very important decissions to be made each time the planning of the Rac Wac (Race around Churchill, Walk around Churchill) is underway is:

a) Where is the starting point,

b) What is the destination

c) Time of day to start, d) theme of day,

e) Mode of transport available (feet or wheels?)

f) Family event, district event or just Guides and Leaders?

g) What are the Occupational, Health and Safety requirements,

h) Is each patrol following a different route to an appropriate destination ( accompanied by an adult with first aid kit and a car) or are the whole lot going together to the end destination?

i) Costs involved?

j) What are the S.W.O.T. things to consider?

K) Menu and allergies to foods.

Making a decoration

To make flat for cards or tags you will need:
card to make head and feet
eyes (draw or purchase)
a little wool to make hair
Glitter and a Large Ground sheet.
  1 pretty doily
glue
Instructions:
Fold the doily as per the illustration and glue feet under the
doily. Draw or attach features and hair to the head. Glue the
head in place and use to decorate Christmas cards, gift tags
and so on.
To make as a decoration you will need:
small pompom for the head
  eyes (draw or purchase)
cardboard rolled into a tube narrower at the top than the bottom
  1 pretty doily
gold thread Instructions:
Roll an oblong of card into a tube shape which is a little narrower than the head pompom at the top but wider at the bottom. Experiment with the size of doily you are usingthe tube should be 2cm shorter than the bottom edge of the doily. Fix the edges of the tube in place with sticky tape. Fold the doily in half and then fold it around the tube as per illustration, gluing the ‘wing’ folds together at the back so the tube cannot be seen. Glue the features to the head then glue the head in place. Attach a hanging loop made from the gold thread. Optional for both versions: spray with gold paint when all glue is dry.
