Jambowlree Online 2020.
Over 35 Cubs, Scouts and Explorers from the 53rd enjoyed year’s unofficial Jambowlree  
World Scout ten pin bowling Competition. Due to current Stay Safe Stay Home restrictions the
Competition was played online on Saturday 23rd May.  Those Cubs, Scouts and Explorers
who took part send in three screen shots and a photo playing the game and will get the 2020
Jambowlree Badge.
Keep on Scouting.
During the Stay Safe Stay Home restrictions the 53rd kept on Scouting with the
participation badge, Keep on Scouting, for our Explorers, Scouts and Cubs. Every Sunday
a task was posted. Members completed the task and took a photo wearing their 53rd
neckers, sending it to the 53rd’s Email to be posted on our Facebook Page and Web site.
Eight Tasks were posted and Members had to do all 8 to get the Badge. Click on the Keep
on Scouting Page to see more.

Stay Safe, Stay Home Badge work
Parallel with the Keep on Scouting participation Badge, 53rd Cubs and Scouts
also have the chance to do some badge work. These badges were posted on
the Keep on Scouting page together with the Task of the week. Badges done
to date are Book Readers, Artist, Cooks, Writers, Sports enthusiasts and
Crafts. In total 55 Badges have been earned by Cubs and Scouts. Two
Explorers also completed their Award of Completion Badge and another 5
their Leadership Badge.
Star Work for Cubs
Once Cubs had sent in work done on the 8 Tasks for the Keep on Scouting Badge, Cub Leaders notice when
updating the records for the First and Second Stars that many Cubs needed requirements for Science and Nature.
After videos were made by older Explorers we now present four Experiments. Cubs must do 3 of the 4 and send in
photos of their results to the 53rd email address. They must not forget to wear their neckers. Click on the links
below to see the Experiments. We ask Parents to help and explain what happens during the experiments.
