Just like in council, my passion in Scouts had been dwindling recently, especially when your friends arent giving you the whole support when you need it. In council, i guess i sort of took all the "guainess" of my juniors and peers when i tasked them a job, in Scouts, its hard to task my peers without getting back a whine, or even a huge complaint. Irritating. But still, they are my best of friends, thus Dominic and I had to shoulder all the task they did not manage to complete which was around 80percent. :-(
Back to scouts today.
Hongkongs' Scouts of the year visited us! The delegation of 10 people comprises of their commisioner, cub scouts, scouts, venture scouts and assistant scouts leader. I almost freaked out just now, I was really afraid that we would screw up big time. Oh well, we cannot find our lanyard. *if i ask my QM to restock, i could imagine both of them yelling at me, telling me its test week, wanna bet?* , great... our stuff seemeed to disappear week by week. We decided to use the guy line, crap.
Thank goodness, I had the most responsible and capable PL Lee Peiyit, who SELFLESSLY volunteered to take over william and did the flag break and flag lowering. Contrary to what Liang Wei said, I thought, Peiyit did a great job, he took the situation calmly and effortlessly, great job.
Meanwhile, the Hongkong Scouts stood at the back, observing us. I hope i did not screw up my footdrill, well guodan did not step infront. Its his first time anyway, so no fault ;)
The Year 1-3s scouts went to the LT2 and watch a small documentary. I believe its the same old movie that miss sim made. I didnt go, i was looking after the bags. Until the Year 1 and 2s came back and told me that they were still in the LT, i rushed over, and found the Year 3s interacting with the scouts.
Im proud of them for being enthusiastic in interacting with the scouts at first, but slowly i realised, some of them was losing themselves. Freaking funny. Shuyangs' face went all red! RED! and started muttering nonsense, and won't stop until I asked him to. William was erm. his own self i guess, then, thats rather erm, lack of situation awareness, making weird sounds and all. Guo dan was GREAT, i meant it, he really do know how to engage with the visitors.
When we were walking to other places, the plc, drrew themselves up and walked behind, after a while i decided to mingle around with the hk scouts. Only guo dan and i was mingling as we approached the end. The PLC was basically Talking to themselves. I dun blame them though, its our fault that we didnt conduct combined activity and i guess, if not for council, i would be like them...
Got to know some great friends from hong kong. From erm 10- 17 years old? They are really friendly and outgoing, I guess, that was what made them the scouts of the year. And dominic, I dun think u can pwn them :)
When the whole thing ended, we xchanged some badges and the hk scouts were so nice!!! They gave me some badges and a woggle, Love the friendship we enforced.
This delegation made me feel an urge to go for jamboree, donations anyone?
