SAC Group has not set their biography yet

Posted by on in From the Rover Section

Normally Summer Camp would be quite a busy time for the Rover Crew as many of its members would be busy with their respective sections. As a result the Crew does not often have an activity of its own – let alone an overnight one. Having said that, the recent inclusion of a number of new members has meant that there would be more Rovers able to participate in a given activity and therefore we duly obliged by organising an overnight hike.

The Rovers decided to hold a snorkeling activity and small BBQ afterwards on Wednesday 20th August in-stead of a regular Wednesday meeting so as to kick off a list of activities with something simple which every-one would be able to attend and enjoy.

This year’s Fund raising Pasta Night was a great success with attendance reaching a satisfying 200 people!

Our team of kitchen aficionados churned up a myriad of appetisers and four delicious plates of Spinach, Funghi Porcini, Fresh Salmon and Ricotta ravioli kindly supplied by Gourmet Foods Ltd.

This year’s edition was run by a mixed team of Ventures and Rovers who were eager to roll their sleeves up and get the job done.

A special thanks goes to all those who helped in the food preparation and cooking, serving and bar, logistics setup and dismantling and all those who helped with the washing

On Wednesday 29th October the Cub section had their annual Halloween party organised at the SAC Headquarters.

Cubs were invited to attend in their Halloween costumes and cubs turned up in a variety of scary cos-tumes including zombies, ghosts, skeletons, vampires and wizards.

The party consisted of a variety of Halloween-themed games and activities. The cubs were divided into different groups and once the party started each group could participate in any of the games or activities that were available. The games and activi-ties included eyeball throwing, shrinking island, wrap the mummy, witch washing, Halloween cor-ners, Halloween ship racing, and climb the web. The cubs also had an activity of trick or treat. The cubs also had a food station where they could eat and drink between taking part in the various activities. Accompanying the there were fantastic muffins and cakes prepared specially for the occasion by some parents.

Chocolate making was definitely the highlight of the event. Cubs were given the opportunity to make chocolates by pouring melted chocolate into Halloween themed moulds after which they were given the opportunity to decorate the chocolates once they had cooled down.

At the end of the party the cubs were given a pack to take with them with the chocolate moulds they had made.

We would like to thank all the people including parents, friends and Rovers who offered their help on the day so that this even could be a success.

As the fields start getting greener and the days get cooler, there’s no better way to spend a Sunday af-ternoon than in the countryside away from the ur-ban areas we spend our lives in.

With this in mind, our AVSL Isaac took us on a hike in one of the most remote areas of the island. This hike started and finished at the Paradise Bay car park and took us around the tip of Malta’s ‘tail’.

From the photos one can see that this was a very ad-venturous walk in an area seldom visited by people. In the first part of our trek, under the cliffs we had to climb over, under and in between huge boulders, we found a sizeable natural rain water pond and some interesting rock formations. No wildlife was seen un-fortunately, although we did find a few skeletons of dead birds. We carried on until we reached the sea and figured out that the only way out was to head up. Fortunately, close by there was a way out so we climbed up towards a rock cut staircase which must have been used by fishermen.

Once we reached the top of the cliff, the view was breathtaking (or maybe we had lost our breath on our way up!) so we stopped to have our packed lunches to regain those calories we had used up. Following the trail ahead of us, we walked on towards Qammiegh Point. Along the way we observed various illegal manmade dwellings and wondered at how smart these people are, to build their little houses in such a beautiful and peaceful place.

Next, we lounged along the road towards the Red Tower however this was boring, so instead, upon reach-ing one of the wartime pillboxes on the ridge, we cut down into the valley through the countryside and followed some farmers’ paths in a general direction towards Paradise Bay car park which we could see up ahead. Soon enough we got there and the hike was brought to an end. We all headed off to the nearest ice-cream kiosk to celebrate the day’s event which, although being a relatively short hike and activity was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended and also proved to be somewhat educational for most of us who had never visited this part of the island in times gone by.

As part of its continous fund raising activities the Rover Crew organised a World Cup Final party at its HQ on July 13th. The HQ was turned into a makeshift stadium with a big screen in the central courtyard to benefit from the cool breeze that evening. Around fifty members, partners and friends attended this event. Needless to say good food and beverages pub style were served by our Rover Crew with bangers and mash being the main course accompanied by the proper beverages for such an occassion. Support was divided equally between Germany and Argentina but the tension was minimal as our main focus was to have a good time and watch a good game. Had Italy or England been in the final it would have been a different story.

Our Group is organizing its annual fundraising pasta night on August 2nd. We would like to invite all members and their families, friends and former members too to this event. We have a lot of work to do for two key projects the Group is embarking on in the coming months and all the support we can get will be really appreciated. As usual our cooking and preparation team will not disappoint those attending. Kindly book in advance so we avoid late bookings as this disrupts our plans.

In what is possibly the longest feature ever, George ZM tells us all he can about his favourite sport, Rugby.

As the next Malta Rugby international game approaches, I would like to take this space to talk about the sport I have come to love, rugby and how it has helped mould me as a person in the same way scouting raised me.

It may be hard to imagine, but rugby and scouting do have a lot in common when you break them down to their core values. Both cultures (I was going to say hobbies, but we all know that scouting is a way of life and I'm sure you'll soon think the same of rugby) are built on the same fundamental pillars of Respect, Acceptance and most of all Fun. Let me get into more detail (for those parents already muttering about safety, I'll cover that too).

It has already been one year since former Group Scout Leader John A. Mizzi, affectionately known as “Cubbie”, passed away following a short illness. On Wednesday 5th February 2014, the Group organised a mass in remembrance of “Cubbies” on the first anniversary of his death. All sections of the Group – Cubs, Scouts, Ventures, Rovers and their respective Leaders – were in attendance. Also in attendance were Victor Mizzi, his brother and Peter his nephew, neighbours, former scouts and parents.

Ever since the passing away of Cubbie last February the Scout Group and a number of  former scouts (led by Mr William Spiteri Bailey, Mr Mark Pizzuto, Capt. Reuben Lanfranco & Mr I Consiglio), have worked to see how best to honour Cubbie and his contribution to scouting at St Aloysius College.
