Cub Scout Pack (A)
Events in 1998:


Christmas Party 1998 
(20 December 1998) 

Our Group held a Christmas Party on 20 December 1999. We invited parents of the Cubs and Scouts to attend the party. Over 120 people gathered at a holiday camp in Sheung Shui. We had many games including "Dress the Santa"; a play by our Cub sections and a BBQ for lunch. We did not usually have a lot of activities for the parents and they said we should organize more because they enjoyed spending time with their kids during these kinds of activities.

Island Scout Day 
(29 November 1998) 

Pack A and Pack B were honoured at the Island Scout Day. The Chief Commissioner awarded both Packs with Merits of Excellence.

(8 November 1998) 

Pack A had a fun day at Tai Long Beach on 8 November 1998. The Cubs learned how to start a charcoal fire as well as building a sand castle after they had a delicious BBQ lunch. Three of the Cubs also passed the tests for their Cook badge on the day.

Group Camp at Tai Tam Scout Centre 
(18-20 July 1998) 

Our Group went to Tai Tam Scout Centre for our Annual Group Camp. The Cub sections had a variety of activities including practice for Home Service Badge testing for which the Cubs learnt sewing, frying eggs, making their own beds and ironing. 

In the evening, we had a "Stone Age Party" for which we dressed up as stone age people.

Bishop Shield Competition 
(3 May 1998) 

Bishop Shield Competition is held every year for all Catholic Scout groups in Hong Kong. This year we had a "fancy dress competition" for which we had to dress up as bible characters. Also we had hymn singing competition and pioneering projects. 

Our Group was very lucky and came First in both the Cub and Scout sections.

Selling Raffle Tickets at Star Ferry 
(8 February 1998) 

Our Group was selling raffle tickets at the Star Ferry pier on 8 February 1998. The raffle ticket campaign was organized by the Scout Association of Hong Kong. All the proceeds would go in aid of the Scout Movement in Hong Kong. All Groups in Hong Kong were encouraged to take part in selling the raffle tickets and part of the proceeds would go back to the Groups. The first prize this year was a car. Over 80 members turned out throughout the day (in shifts) and we sold almost 3000 tickets.
