Historic Scouting Visit - Michael Baden Powell (Grandson of Scouting Founder BP)

























To the Sunraysia Scouting Community,

We are going to have a very important visitor to Sunraysia on the 26th November. Michael Baden-Powell, the grandson of Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, is coming to Mildura to visit the local Scouting community and to give a small presentation on the history of Scouting. We really need to show some support for this, as we ARE Scouts and this is as close to the Founder as any of us will get!

Who is he? Robert Baden-Powell (BP) is the founder of Scouting, Michael is his grandson.
When: Friday 26th November 2010
Time: 7:30pm
Where: Nichols Point Scout Hall
Uniforms please.

Michael is giving a presentation on the history of Scouting, and we would love to have a big turnout for this. Especially the Rovers, this is Scouting, and you are part of it! Hope to see you all there.

Event information can be downloaded here.

Download a sample of a 1911-1914 American Scout Handbook, just have a read of what Scouts were expected to do, especially the blacksmithing!

Hope to see you all there.
