2011 Annual General Meeting (AGM) – Please Come!!

Birralee is due to have our next AGM soon, probably late March or early April, so keep your eyes and ears open for more information.

Recent years have only seen existing committee members are leader attend and this is a real shame. Attending the AGM is not any sort of commitment to join the Group Committee or become a leader, but rather the AGM is a great opportunity to both hear how Birralee is tracking and to have some say in where we are heading.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Bill Allen, Group President

In the middle of 2010 we filled out an application for me and my sister Skye to go on the Cuboree in January 2011. I expected it to be fun, interesting and a time to make new friends. When the day finally arrived to get ready we had to pack all our kit and drop the bags off at the cub house, because it was going to be a long walk from the car park to our tent. Our leaders took them all to the camp site for us, the day before. After dinner, on Friday 14th January my mum dropped us off at Camp Cottermouth. (It really was a long walk from the car park to our tents). My mum told me there was going to be lots of people there, but I didn’t expect the crowds that were pulling up in their cars. On the walk to our area, we passed hundreds of other cubs who had come to have some fun. It was a tent city. Continue reading
