There ended up being tug of war:

We beat Odessy (well Colin and a sub)


We beat them again…

We lose (spectacularly) to Prometheus


9th Irene is fortunate to be one of very few groups to have all 3 branches of the Scouts organisation (Cubs, Scouts & Rovers), glad our Scouts & Rovers attended


Spiderweb! What a great time to ask someone to join #ProphecyRoverCrew. Good luck Chandrétjie for the exams! Looking forward to seeing what social project and service you have planned so we can get you officially invested^_^ Thanks Gav for the pic! As our technically newest squire we shall get a manditory horrible photo of you on here soon

St. Georges day 2012

On the 23rd of April Irene Rover Crew held as our first event that included other Crew an evening centered around Vortex Canons.

The vortex Canons where simple cardboard box’s that are sealed with tape and have a circular hole cut in them. When hit on the sides they emit a puff of smoke of air in the shape of a ring that is capable of knocking small objects over (ie.Paper Cups).  Filling the box with smoke makes it easier to aim as you can see the vortex ring. The smoke also makes it way more fun.A big thank you to all the crew who came through. North West, Phoenix and Prometheus.

Outdoor Expo and Scouts

The annual Outdoor Expo in Gauteng takes place at Waterfall Estates in Midrand from the 8th to 12th June 2012.  The Outdoor Expo bring thousands of Nature and Adventure enthusiast to one venue each year. These are the same people that should be involved in Scouting.

Scouts Gauteng approached the organisers to build a huge pioneering structure which they have accepted.  The plan is to build a massive tower that will function as the Gateway to the Expo.The model is 2.4m tall and the allocated stand is 20m by 20m.Below is a list of general equipment that we need. ·

10 x 9m Poles

40 x 6m Poles

20 x 5m Poles

30 x 3m Poles

30 x <2.6m and below Poles

300+ Ropes

Plenty of Stakes

The Isengard Tower when complete will stand at 24m high and will have base of 6m x 6m.The tower will act as the gateway for the show where all visitors will purchase their tickets. At this point we would like to ask for your assistance in building the massive tower. We are looking for Springbok Scouts and Scouters to manage the various stages and parts of the project, we are also looking for senior scouts (14yrs) to build the project. Without a strong and large work force, this cannot be done.
