3rd Invercargill Boys Brigade
At Boys Brigade we revolve our programme around the National Award system and work hard to allow boys to work towards their
Queens Badge, the highest award. We also try to make sure that all activities are completed in a safe environment yet providing
boys with new challenges.
Our starting day this year is Wednesday 12th February at the times indicated on the newsletter. We hope that the weather will be
fine enough to run our first term outdoor programme.
Remember that we start and finish at the Windsor Community Church Hall unless otherwise advised. We wish to stress that we do
need help with transport for all the outdoor activities planned for the first term and we ask parents for assistance and to join
in on the fun planned. If there are any special instructions needed for the following week these will be given to the boys at the
end of the night (not always on paper), so remember to ask your boys if they need to bring anything the following week.
We encourage boys to bring some friends on the outdoor activities in the hope that we may get some new members to join our group.
So if you think that one or two friends may be interested in joining our group this year, please feel free to bring them along.
We will make them most welcome. We are happy for you to copy our BB Newsletter and give them to friends.
Our group tries very hard in the area of outdoor activities and we include camps and tramps in our programme. At the Team Section
level, we try to hold 2 camps during the year - one at the start and one at the end. These camps are almost always held at proper
camp sites with indoor sleeping, cooking and recreational facilities. It is a good opportunity for parents to have a weekend away
with their boys and doing some fun and challenging activities. We do need your help to make the camps a success..
Our fees for the year have been set and are detailed in the Boys Brigade newsletter available on the Windsor Community Church
If you have any questions about our group or any of the activities, please do not hesitate to phone me. We are all looking forward to another exciting year
