One of the new things I have done in New Zealand is become a scout leader. Last term I ran one of the local troops while the leader was at the international scout jamboree in the UK to celebrate 100 years of scouting. The picture above shows the scouts preparing a hangi (a traditional Maori oven) and cooking salmon, vegetable parcels and roast sweet potatoes. We had roasted banana with maple syrup for pudding.
My thanks go to City Firewood for kindly donating the firewood.

How about running a pen pal exchange with a Scout Group in HOSM ?

Hi Chris,

All things are possible. We have a camp for JOTI this weekend hope you'll be there too!

Yours in scouting,
