Portal Pack


Portal Pack recently entered a team of 8 boys: Richard Munson, Tom Weckerle, Ben Tyler, Robert Hartwell, Dan Ephraim, Mike Ridge, Oliver Smith and Jack Hutchison in the Chester District Kwik Cricket Competition held at Mickle Trafford Scout Headquarters. Despite torrential rain both before and during the event the four Cub Packs involved (Tarporley, Guilden Sutton, Mickle Trafford and Farndon) managed to play a round robin of games. The Tarporley team won each of their three games with each team member contributing to the success as all boys were required to bat, bowl and field during the innings. A good morning was enjoyed by all the Cubs that took part, Tarporley were presented with a trophy to mark their victory.

Chester District Cub Craft Competition 2009

The team of 6 were TCM, Sam Hawes, William Morris, Lachlan Chavasse, Robert Pownall and James MacPhee. They competed against 7 other Cub Packs from the District.
They had two hours to produce a model with the theme of re-cycling, using materials that could be re-cycled. They also had to each decorate a biscuit using icing and decorations that were provided.

The team were marked on their behaviour, their teamwork and the final products. The boys produced a plan of several ideas before voting on the final design.

As winners the boys now go on to represent the Chester District at the County Final to be held on 7th March.

Well done to the team, the District leaders who ran the event and the judges were all extremely complimentary about your teamwork and your excellent behaviour and good manners. You (and your Mums and Dads) should be very proud.
