Junior Section November 2016
The session is now in full swing and the new boys in the section have settled well. Our youngest members have now started working towards the bronze badge, with our older boys also starting to complete their achievement awards with the aim of gaining their silver and gold badges.
As well as our Friday meetings, it has been a packed period for other events with November looking similarly busy. At the District Sports held at Scotstoun, nine boys took part in a variety of track and field events, with a number of medals won across the three ages groups. Congratulations to all the boys who participated with the section finishing in third place overall at the end of the event.
In the coming weeks, we have our Halloween fancy dress party to look forward to first. We will also be joining with our Anchor Boys section for two evenings in November, with BB Glasgow's sports development officers coming to the church on November 18 to take a session with the boys. On November 25, both sections will be visiting Snow Factor at Braehead for our now annual sledging trip.
And November also sees our first uniformed organisations' service and parade of the session, this year being held to coincide with Remembrance Sunday on November 13. This is an important event for Junior Section, and we'll also be hoping for good weather for the march past after the service.
