In addition to painting our fabulous new patrol boxes with a bit of help from Raven, we began the night with a very special ceremony.  Five of our scubs (cubs-linking-to-scouts) were invested fully into the scout section.  Ciara, Emily, Tom, Millie and Sophie were very excited to finally become fully fledged scouts.  We held the investiture in the bushland of Mott Park with everyone having glow sticks to help light the way.  After a farewell cub parade from our Group Leader/Cub Leader Hawkeye, each of the scubs was carried through the investiture gateway on a chair chariot by their new patrol members.  Once everyone was into the scout circle each scub wrote their name on the gateway crossbeam – the list is getting long and everyone loves looking at who has gone before.  Emily, Millie and Tom were invested into Penguin Patrol and Ciara and Sophie into Panther Patrol.  As usual there was some excellent descriptors by the PLs as to why their patrol is the best and a general welcoming of all the new scouts.
