Company Section September 2018
Earlier in August, nine Company Section boys and three leaders travelled to Ardeonaig Outdoor Centre on the banks of Loch Tay in Perthshire for our annual Summer Camp. We enjoyed a busy five days with boys taking part in a wide range of activities, with highlights including gorge-walking, rock climbing, kayaking and canoeing. While the weather was changeable, many of the activities involved getting wet anyway, and it was dry enough for the evenings to be spent doing a range of things from hill walking and rounders to chocolate egg hunts.
Having returned from camp, our attention now turns towards the beginning of the new session, with enrolment taking place on Friday 31st August at 8.00pm. Normal activities include sports, games, badge work, bugle band, drill, vaulting and a large number of competitions with other local companies as well as our own Company outings. With five boys having departed at the end of last session having gained their Queen’s Badges and reached the Brigade age limit, we expect the average age in Company Section to be younger this year, giving us the opportunity to look at some fresh activities.
As always, any boy between the school ages of P7 and S6 will be made most welcome. Anyone looking for more information can visit our website at 130thglasgow.co.uk. You can also search for 130thglasgowbb on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out more.
