BEWARE – BEWARE = BEWARE…………Beware

A scout sent his sleeping bag to a dry cleaners and took it with him to camp.  He died from the cleaning fluid fumes.  If you send your sleeping bag to the cleaners ensure that it is well aired before using it by turning it inside out and hang it up for several hours before use.

It’s The Thought That Counts

It was reported that four boys has left O.D.G. for Pike of Blisco and had not returned.  It was misty as Sid and a few others took the land rover to the top of Wrynose and started to search the west slopes of Pike of Blisco.  There was a storm but fortunately the boys were soon found and taken down to the land rover and back to Langdale.  The following day the four called at the O.D.G. and asked to speak to the boss. Sid appeared and the largest of the four shyly told Sid, “We have had a whip around mister, and will you please accept the 13/4 we have collected?”
