It’s two thousand and seven, the Scouting Organisation is 100 years old and celebrations are happening throughout the entire year to celebrate this amazing achievement. This year also signifies the 40th anniversary of the Student Scout And Guide Organisation. A national group setup alongside the Scout Association and GirlGuiding UK to encourage membership whilst attending Higher Education.
The independence of the organisation limits its capacity, we can not hold a 2 week long Jamboree nor concerts and camps throughout the year, we can put on a slightly more extravagant Rally than we usually do, powered by the 2007 Steering group we descend upon the Lincoln District Campsite
Some of the changes that made the event much more than a regular rally include the opening of attendance to past members of SSAGO, and members of SAGGA. Accompanied by a Firework display, retro activities and memorial video the event highlighted where we had been and where we are going as an organisation, hopefully one that will stand the test of time.
I quite enjoyed the event, I assisted in some of the preparations on and off site but the real thanks belongs to the 2007 Steering Group that having worked towards he events preparations without a solid support mechanism (such as a club) for so long.
