Up and Coming Events
Sunday 25th April
Gumdale Scout group is part of the Manly Lota RSL ANZAC day march; our Ventures lead the march as the official flag bearers. The rest of the group March with the diggers.
We meet in front of Manly State School at 7:40 am and March (8 am). The March route will begin at the front of Manly State School and conclude at Richard Russell Park near the corner of Cambridge Parade and Melville Tce.
The service should last about an hour; the service begins with the inclusion of two national anthems (NZ and Aust), hymns, speeches and wreath-laying.
This is a “big must” for our scout members as a show of respect to our diggers, and as in the past, we will regroup after the march at the Tingalpa MacDonald’s for a treat!

2nd May 2021
Be part of it!
It is so cool to see that we have 50% of the positions filled for our Bunning’s fundraiser on the 2nd of May, well-done guys.
I'm impressed and I am grateful for those in our scouting community that have already put their hands up, a big-big thank you. For those that are thinking that they will let someone else do it, Please don’t, we are a community and we need your help.
Our leaders put their hands up every week, the very least you could do is put your hand up once a term to help and show us your support, we really do need to feel the love.
The funds raised pays for a lot of the stuff your scout needs.
Please answer the Operoo email today and help us.
Brisbane Gang Show
The Brisbane Gang Show is a live variety musical produced by Scouts Queensland each year and performed traditionally in the June / July School Holidays.
Brisbane Gang Show’s cast is comprised of Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts, Girl Guides and Leaders ranging in age from 9-25; and they are all volunteers.
The cast is open to youth members from all cultures and backgrounds, and fosters a great relationship between individuals as they become a member of the Gang Show family.
Behind the scenes the Brisbane Gang Show is supported by team of 180+ volunteers that help with wardrobe, lighting, sound, stage crew, set construction, front of house, marketing, administration and finance. Each year the Gang Show doesn’t only look for volunteers to be in the cast but the Gang are always looking for people to join the crew no matter their skill level.
Applications for the 2021 have now CLOSED. Applications for the 2022 season will open after the 2021 show has concluded.
Cuboree 2021 World Tour will be held from 19 September 2021 – 24 September 2021.
Cuboree World Tour will be held at Rocky Creek Scout Grounds, Landsborough.
26th Australian Jamboree
We regret to advise that the 26th Australian Jamboree has been cancelled. We are confident we could manage health and safety at the Jamboree, but there is still too much uncertainty and huge financial risk – for Scouting and your families.
This years camp will be held from the 18nd to 24th of September
Agoonoree is a scouting term to describe a camp for young people with special needs.
Agoonoree is a camp where youth members over the age of twelve help a Disabled child do Scouting activities. Each section has a different responsibility like Scouts spend all of their time with the guests, Ventures help run activities and help the group when they need it. This year at Agoonoree my team and I helped a child that had severe cerebral palsy do heaps of activities. We had to help him with his daily needs such as eating and keeping clean. We helped him complete activities such as Abseiling, swimming, water slides, chemical reactions, a maze and heaps more. We also had another child that we helped, he had ADD, Attention Deficit Disorder. We also helped him complete the activities and we had an awesome time there. Overall I loved the camp and hope to help another child next year.
AGOONOREE IS ABOUT ABILITY NOT DISABILITY.
2021 Applications are now open.
Ask your leader to find out how you can be part of this great event.
