'Back to the Future' with a Bear!

Cubs go 'Back to the Future' with a Bear!
In just over a week after touching down from the Astronomers Badge the Cubs were off again, firing up the DeLorean, and going ‘Back to the Future’ as they celebrated 95 years of Cub Scouting, this time at Detling Showground. The day started with a display of Totem Poles, once a feature of many a Cub Pack, and then it was off to try the 95 different challenges, in the different zones; Sports Time Traveller, Future, Traditional Cub Scouting, Pack up & Go and Futuristic. Some of the activities included trying different sports from the last 95 years, packing a rucksack (without mums help), trying to put up a tent, and five dancing challenges courtesy of the Hullabaloo Road show.
The highlight of the day was a special visit by Bear Grylls, our Chief Scout, who arrived by helicopter and also tried his hand at some of the activities, as well as high fiving cubs & leaders, and thanking everyone for taking part in such a special day.
