Last night I began the paperwork to join our local Scout group as a volunteer leader. You should have seen how fast the current leaders jumped for the papers and a pen for me!

In my usual style I began searching to see what is happening in Scouting online. Turns out there is a bit, but not as much as i would like. Our group doesn't yet have any web site (that'll soon be fixed 🙂

Anyway here are a few links I dug up of interest to me at the moment:

    Hi Matthew,

    Just found your web site. If you are interested in learning about scout drumming please feel free to contact me. We run drumming sessions every Thursday evening from 6:30pm to 7pm before our weekly meeting. I’ve visited about 30 scout group since 2003 by running one hour workshops for Joeys, Cubs and Scouts sections.

    cheers, Mark

    Just saw your October blog about taikoz. The drumming our scouts do is based on taikoz drumming. I started lessons with Taikoz in 2005 and found this format to be the very suitable for cubs and scouts. We did the drumming at the Slamboree half-time by playing a Taiko style with old marching drums. I’m hoping to do the Friday nights classes at Taikoz in term 1, 2007.

    I started learning drumming in 1997 with Epping Pipe Band. I am currently the lead side for Hornsby RSL Pipe Band and also the pipe tutor for the East Hills Scouts Pipes and Drums. Barry Gray (ex-PM of City of Blacktown Pipe Band) will also be helping tutoring the scout and guide learner pipers in 2007.

    cheers, Mark
