Gregory and Ford Cub packs from 6th Ashton Scout Group took part in a ‘pack versus pack’ rounder’s match at King Georges Park in Ashton
The Cub’s wanted to make the most of this glorious weather and having the Ashton Park on their doorstep seemed to be the perfect venue to hold the event.
Throwing down a ‘tongue in cheek’ gauntlet, the youngsters of Gregory pack had sent Ford pack a menacing video, challenging them to a rounder’s match with the losing group having to buy everyone an ice cream….So really there were no real loser’s, at all – ha-ha!
Ford pack did however take the win with the score being Ford 27- Gregory 19. The cubs had a great night and we had a fantastic turn out, we look forward to more inter-pack competitions and challenges especially if they involve sunny evenings and ice creams in the park!
Danielle, Hyde Cub Scout Leader from Gregory Pack,said, “I know we lost, but all the Cubs thought it was a great night.”
Alan Fish commented, “We are very short of everyday adult supporters; they don’t have to be scout members, just local people that are willing to help out; – like running a game of rounder’s!”
