Unit Scarves near door.

From now on when we go into Guides we get the bag of scarves and put them near the door. Then we put one on for the night. After the meeting we leave them behind near the door…but not in the bag. That way the ones worn will be washed and made ready for nest week.
Our next job is to get the Unit flag stand ready to erect the flag. The Flag pole goes in the North side of the Building. That is where the roof is highest near the office door. A compass can be used to check this out.
After Guide and before the Color Party people put their scarves away they must put the Flag and its pole and the stand away.

Recieving that first badge.

When Youth members receive their first Sash it is important to them.  Then when they receive the first badges there is a positive wow factor.  Everyone present feels like they too are getting their first badges all over again.

In November  2009 two members received their sashes.  Also the badges that had been achieved to that date.  Besides the Patrol Badge some were special badges, while others were Explore and Challenge badges.

These badges were awarded today:
Patrol Badge: Koala

Special Badges: 100 years of Guiding badge.
     
Explore: Friendship, Guiding, Outdoors, Science and Technology, The Arts, Guiding. There are skill more to come by the end of the year.

Challenge: Food.

These youth members are so close to finishing other badges that they will be surprised early next year when they realise how close they were to receiving them.

For now though the challenge is to have these ones sewn on before we return next year[ January 20th 2010]. Now they are learning how to sew them on. Then they have finished the challenges towards their Create Hands Badge!!  I am sure that they will share and commiserate with learning to  hand sew with other people. Glad the badges are safety pinned in place.

Australia Day in Melbourne

Australia Day celebrated as a State Event in Melbourne. This event has the Guides carrying a large Australian Flag. For this the day is primarily aimed at the BP’s, Queens Guide’s and OBPs presented the previous year. The years that I took Guides down who had achieved these Peak Achievement we had a ball. At the end of the march there we were in Government gardens joining in the festivities.

Full Uniform is worn. Take drink bottles full of water and sun hats. Make sure you are well fed before the ceremonies begin.

Australia Day Jan 26th in Hazelood and Churchill shopping Centre.

Starting usually a 7am this local event is now being held at the Hazelwood and Churchill shopping Center. (theory of this is great) As a Hazelwood and Churchill Event it is open to all aged Guiding personal and members. Event permission forms should be handed to the Guide Leader in Charge of the Guides on the day… signed by parent or carrer.

Previous years we have been asked to face paint as an activity while people eat and catch up with friends. Other times there have been odd jobs like the handing out of flags, song sheets, readings, hoisting the flag / color party [with Scouts].

One draw back here is that we usally do not get finalisation of anything until the week before. When we do it will be posted here. So keep an eye out and email us when if you think you are coming.

To Market …to market

  Idea from Rebecca was discusssed. After all present had input the following was decided:

  • To attend the Morwell Markets once a month ….on the Second Saturday of the month.
  • To share a stand with a family member already attending these markets.
  • To spend the time between now and January 2010 making/cleaning and packaging all products sold for and on behalf of the Gipp’s Guides.
  • face painting was brought up. 
    • Decission was to have more practice at designs and the spreading of the paint and marketing commitments before taking this on properly.
  • To make as business cards / tags to be included onto/inside the items sold.
  • To represent the Gipp’s Guides and wear Uniform.
    • Previously decided that moneys raises from any fundraising will pay for new Uniforms and Gipp’s Guide registrations [less the 10% profit that stays within the Gipp’s Guide account as running expenses for the Unit]
  • To take and fly the World Flag and the Gipps Guide Flag one only while there is a Gipps Guide officially on the stand.
  • To use this time as good Public relations for the Gipps Guides and Guiding in General.
    • Taking names of those interested and refering all the enquires to the Region Leader.
  • The Girl Guide Biscuits sold from now on will be sold as Out of Date and for $2.00.  Money for the Girl Guide biscuits is to go back to the District /Unit accounts it came orgininally from.  This is a Service to Guiding.  In this case to the Hazelwood and Churchill District.

The Colour Guards Job desciption includes…

It is the Color Guards job to guide the Color Bearer from injury or harm. When the Color Bearer is carrying the Flag in the hoist she cannot see as the Flag pole and Colors are directly in her line of sight. For this reason the Color Guards stand so that their shoulders are able to Guide the Color Bearer. Nudging her to go one way away from possible danger or hazard.

The second job of the Color Guard is to assist in protecting the Flag – “the Colors”.
This job starts when the Flag is handed over to the Color Party until it is handed back and protectively stored away again.

The third job is to listen and respond to the Color Bearers commands. This then assists the Color Bearer to have a Uniform marching Color Party.

Australia Day 2010

We are going to go to Austrralia Day in Churchill Shopping center next year.  That means we are there for a 7am start.  Breakfast starts at about 8.30 am.  So we are to have Breakfast at home first.  And take a drink bottle down with us.

Next week the District will have some uniforms for us to have until we grow out of them.  Hope they all fit.

28th November 2010.

A decision was made by the guides to wear the scarves, which scarves, where to put them so they were all available as they walked in the door and what to do with them after after the meeting.

A second decision was made with regard to the Unit Flag. Yes they would like the Unit Flag there when they are at Guides. Where was ‘there’ to be though.
