Sounds of 'dyb dyb dyb' and 'dob dob dob' at Glenore Grove

THE traditional cub scout greeting of 'dyb dyb dyb' and 'dob dob dob' returned to Glenore Grove when scouts held their annual open day to showcase their skills to the community.

Group leader for Glenore Grove Scouts Peter Askew, said the open day was a big success with close to a dozen new members signing up on the day.

"We had 10 or 12 sign up on the day, but there were more than 20 new people visit on the day, so we are hoping even more will join us in the next few weeks," Mr Askew said.

"We also recruited a new Joey leader, who will be looking after the Joey Cubs, which is the 6-8 -year-olds, who are just starting their journey in Scouting."

As well as traditional activities, including construction and campfire safety, scouts built a 'transport bridge' which was later used as part of an investiture ceremony, and also a camp 'fun fair'.

"Scouts built a 'slippery pig' and a climbing frame, all of which can be built on a group or district camp as activities," he said.

Mr Askew said the Glenore Grove Scouts have a 'packed' program for 2016, including group and district camps, joining with other groups. Glenore Grove Scouts meet at the scout den, next to Glenore Grove State School.
