Zeus thunders in….

Posted on October 31st, 2014 by Carl Gaskell

A long, long time ago, in a faraway place..

Well, perhaps some time ago, at 3rd Reading Scouts…

There was only one Scout troop.

It was the Titans.

And it was on a Wednesday.

And it was good.

Over time, however, the group grew and as we took on more Scouts we opened an extra troop on Fridays.

The name ‘Titans’ was relegated to history.

And we had Wednesday Scouts and Friday Scouts.

And it was fine.

But now.. the Titans are back with a vengeance!

And joining them – as voted for by the Friday Scouts themselves – we have the Zeus Troop!

Let the fun begin!

Also don’t forget that this half term is the final deadline for applications to this year’s Winter Camp. If you want to go and haven’t yet let the leader team know, please do so as a matter of urgency. Nearly all places have now been filled!

See you all in November!
