A Round of the Gilwell Song....

Recommended Posts

Just finished my second weekend of WB, WOW what an experience

To continue with THE SONG

 

I used to be an Antelope a good ol Antelope too

But now I'm finished Loping, I don't know what to do.

I'm growing old and feeble and I can't Lope no more.

So I'm going to work my ticket if I can.

 

Back to Gilwell Happy Land, I'm going to work my ticket if I can.

 

Now where are the Staffers????

This Bobwhite missed his opportunity to sing when the time came. I'll bless the forum with the beautiful song of the quail after the round of screeches, growls, hoots, snorts, and slaps.

 

A little something I posted on our SR773 Bobwhite message board regarding the little bird that embarassed the VP:

 

The Bobwhite quail covey is a tight-knit family that, when faced with approaching danger, bravely stays together until the last possible moment. When the covey explodes from cover the attacker is momentarily startled then confused by so many birds flying in different directions, they are unable to capture one. Sure, once in a while the attacker gets lucky, but the solidarity displayed by the covey should be admired by the solitary hunters such as the fox or eagle.

 

Until my singing opportunity arrives,

YiS,

 

Mark

Hey guys and gals,

 

I know we're old getting old but can we spell "feeble" correctly?

 

Thanks,

Having waited for any of the other Patrols such as Ravens, Bobcats or Wolves to appear and sing, and as noone else has taken the opportunity, I'll take the liberty of singing twice this round.

 

And Sue, if you have been selected for staff and begun staff development you're a staffer.

 

I used to be a STAFFER and a good old STAFFER too.

But now I'm finished STAFFing and I don't know what to do.

I'm growing old and feeble (I sure hope I spelled that right) and I can STAFF no more.

So I'm going to work my ticket if I can.

 

Back to Gilwell, Happy Land. I'm going to work my ticket if I can.

Hello all,

I have completed my first weekend of WB, and I have to say I am loving it. I have been in scouting as a leader for almost three years, and was in scouting as a youth.

 

Go beavers.

For a brief interlude, whilst I await the turn of the glorious OWLS...

 

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness,

birds in the wilderness,

birds in the wilderness ...

 

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness,

Waiting for the Eagles and the Foxes...

 

Waiting for the Eagles and the Foxes...
