Getting Ready for the new Scouting Year.
On Saturday 25th August all the Leaders together with some Explorers, spent
the weekend at the Cyprus Scouts Associations house in Troodos. During the
weekend we enjoyed a wonderful Souvla and a fascinating Moonlight Hike
around the Artemis trail. We also used the weekend to plan a new and
exciting program for the coming year.  All together the Group will be 120
members plus 30 new and we are prepared to offer them a fun and exciting
Scouting Program. Are you ready?

For the month of October the Shop will be open from 2pm to 8pm from Monday to Friday and on Saturdays from
10.30am to 12.30pm. All Scouts must be in full uniform by the 21st October. That is Shirts and Green Beret. To

patient and not take out your frustration on Maria. We recommend you pay for the missing items and when she
gets them from the main Scout shop in Nicosia, Skip will collect them and bring to the meetings.

expect the friends of our Cubs, Scouts and Explorers coming to the party to obey
our rules and regulations. The Halloween Party will be at the Scout hut in

K1.5 Hike 2018
On Sunday 7th October 60 scouts and Explorer scouts took to the mountains to complete
the annual K1.5 sponsored hike. The hike is a 14kms hike with a 1km height gain which
proves to be  very challenging especially to some of the newer members.  However the
rewarding sense of achievement is second to non and of course members receive the
all important K1.5 t-shirt.  This would not be possible without the help of the leaders who
manned important check points and the young leaders who encouraged and supported
all the members to help them complete the hike.  Thank you to everyone.
