9th Deal (Ash)


Headquarters: Molland Lea, Ash CT3 2JF

What have 9th been up to this year?

We have been continuing our theme of Exploration and Discovery with a trip to the Powell-Cotton Museum to see Sir Percy's collection from his Victorian expeditions, it has inspired us to start our own mini-museum.

All 3 sections have learned to ride horses as mode of transport employed during the golden age of exploration at Barton Field Farm Equestrian Centre.

In honour of the 70th anniversary of the British triumph on Mount Everest the Group descended to Chimera Bouldering Centre to hone their bouldering skills and solve an array of challenges to reveal the home of the mysterious Yeti.

Half of the Group enjoyed learning to ski at Folkestone Ski Centre whilst the other half dared to navigate across the high ropes course.

In September we returned from our Autumn residential in Ashford, activities included: raft building and rafting, buggy building, climbing, abseiling, archery and orienteering.  Many personal challenges were achieved throughout the weekend. The Tree Drinking Society held a short meeting and a cup of tea on the Saturday night overseen by the Brewmaster General.

In July, using our own mock-up plane, the Group took off to Betteshangia in deepest darkest Africa to conduct safari operations and met Brig-Gen. Sir Blenheim Palace.  Skills such as spear making and throwing, hunting, sketch mapping, panoramic drawing, bush tucker cooking, and bush navigation were covered.
The Tree Drinking Society held a mess dinner on the Friday attended by the Mess El Presidente.
Sunday saw a non-religious service presided over by Archbishop Desmond P. Wildebeest of the Congo.

During the Summer term the whole Group went into bushcraft mode.  Skills in den building, hammock making, shelter building, stretcher making, camp bed construction, campfires and camp fire cooking, camouflage and concealment, stalking and tracking were covered.

The Scouts learnt to fish at Sandwich Coarse Fishery as a basic way of catching your own dinner.

In January the Cubs relived Scott's Antarctic expedition by living in the Hut during a cold January weekend.  They learnt to gut a fish, pluck and cook pheasants, improved their navigation skills, learnt to use more knots and build tripods to make a 'flying fox'
