Tasmanian AIM Team Thrilled With National Rover Moot Success

Over the 2023 New year Rovers from all over Australia converged on Northern Tasmania to participate in the 22nd national Rover Moot.

Apple Isle Moot, was threatened by both Covid and flooding, but persevered, proving to be a huge success, starting off with a bang on the 31st of December.

The event was held at Fulton Park, Forth, over a course of 9 days. Onsite the crowd bustled with around 520 Rovers registered as participants, along with 80+ staff members, volunteers and contractors.

With such broad expedition options and a vast variety of activities, participants got to see much of Tasmania. Rovers were treated to experiences with our states best local food to our most thrilling environments.

Rovers from various states explored hikes around Cradle Mountain and Freycinet. Tackled white water rafting and rock climbing. Explored Tasmania’s recreational wilderness with railways and grand views. Discovered our States unique taste with wines, cheeses and chocolates. Experienced ocean diving, mountain biking, 4x4 driving tours, sailing and so much more.

Participants travelled across the state, from one corner of the Tasman Peninsula to the North East and West of Tasmania.

Scouts Tasmania was thrilled to offer a unique opportunity for participants to gain formal training for seamanship and abseiling within the event. Being a first since the introduction of the new Scouting program it was a great addition. Rovers were also given plenty of chances to gain logbook hours towards their Outdoor Adventure Skills.

The events on-site team worked hard creating giant board games,

installing a Frisbee golf course and organising cultural activities with palawa people.

The Arena acted as a centrepiece for on-site night life and live music, featuring several local bands and 2 rovers who ‘spun the discs’, DJing during the midnight shifts.

Scouts Tasmania is so glad to have had the opportunity to host this years National Moot and hopes the friendships and memories made throughout the Moot continue to be shared over years to come.

Harwood Honours

Geraldine & Gerald Receive Australia Day Honours

Anually on Australia Day, we recognize those who have greatly contributed to our communities and environment. 2023 celebrates 1,047 Australians.

Tasmania celebrates fellow Scout legends, Gerald and Geraldine Harwood.

This year’s Australia Day saw scout members Gerald and Geraldine become members of another highly esteemed group, the highly respected Order of Australia.

Interviewed on WIN News Tasmania, Geraldine’s involvement, and ambassadorship of Tasmania’s NDIS,

comes after a lifetime in a career of helping others. “As an individual we can be recognised and that’s fantastic, I’m really proud. But I’m also proud of everyone else along the way”.

A week after Geraldine received her email regarding the achievement, Gerald received his award, earning the medal of the Order of Australia (OAM). Gerald has been involved in the Don River Railway for years, despite living across the other side of the state. Along with his passion for the steam, Gerald’s dedication to various organisations goes above and beyond.

Their shared passion for Scouting and infinite personal time dedicated to it, has seen them being highly commended by both their local Hobart Group and the wider Tasmanian community. They both noted how the confidence and skills youth gain through Scouting is extremely powerful, influencing their way of thinking and decision making. As Gerald points out, “It’s probably the first time ever they’ve been able to do something their parents can’t do!

Scouts Tasmania is so proud to have such amazing individuals in our organisation, ones whose valued commitment to the group, has been recognised.

We hope the Harwood’s can be an inspiration to interested families and youth members who wish to become future leaders and helpers. From all of Scouts Tasmania, congratulations Gerald and Geraldine - we thank you for your incredible dedication.

Australian Wooden

Hundreds of Boats, Thousands of People and Our Scouts

Officially established in 1994 the Australian wooden boat festival was held at Constitution Dock, Hobart. The event, inspired and held by boating enthusiasts Cathy Hawkins, Ian Johnston and Andy Gamlin, started as a two day event. Making it’s debut, the event had outstanding support from the local City Council and several other organisations, including the ABC radio and spirit of Tasmania.

The warm summers day was bustling with 180 beautiful wooden boats, ships and hundreds of attendees, making the first Australian Wooden Boat Festival and incredible success.

Now, 29 years later and the event has only grown more popular. Now a four day event the Australian Wooden Boat Festival (AWBF) was over the 10-13th of February at Constitution Dock & Sullivan’s Cove. The program started midday at Lower Sandy Bay, where a grand 200+ wooden boats sailed across the River Derwent to the festival site, with sights of Tall Ships, Yachts and more. After welcome to country and official event opening on water events and viewing ensued.

Saturday and Sunday held the Derwent World Championships and Foster’s cup, with the infamous Clennett’s Mitre 10 Quick & Dirty Boat Building Challenge Race held on the Monday.

Scouts Tasmania is proud to see our Scout Groups and youth members participating in local events, along with tackling the creative, fun and skilful challenge put forward. The Scouts spent 3 days building their crafts, supplied with resources and set instructions. Once the youth teams had constructed the skeletons they set out to cover and waterproof the vessel frames ready for the race on day 4.

Our Local Scouts also, once again, got involved in community service, empting and replacing bins, cleaning up rubbish and ensuring the event stayed clean and sustainable.

The AWBF expo inside and along the dock showcased small sailing boats, similar to the ones our Scout Groups sail in, along with the events ‘most impressive’ ships, 11 Tall Ships berthed across Sullivan’s Cove. Our 5 local Tasmanian ships included Windward Bound, known for their youth development programs and Lady Nelson, the original having 2-4 million Australians with ancestors who sailed on her during the early 1800’s.

Boat Festival 2023

Quick & Dirty Challenge | Event Clean Up

To round out the fleet 6 interstate ships joined the dock, including Young Endeavour, offering at sea youth development, James Craig, originally built in 1874 and Duyfken, a replica of the original1606 ship and one of the rarest ships in the world.

Over 4 days Hobart’s docks and wharfs saw thousands of people and hundreds of ships and boats, leaving the 2023 AWBF a exceptionally successful event. Scouts Tasmania can’t wait for 2025!

North West Bay Sea Scouts participated in the recent AWBF, with two teams entered into the Quick N Dirty boat building competition.

Over 3 days the teams designed and built their boats. On the final day they attempted to sail the boats, or rather paddled their boats in the race. The youth had a practice session prior to the event.

During the AWBF weekend they built the boats on the Saturday, painted the exterior to make it waterproof and decorated the boat on the Sunday. They raced around Constitution Dock on the Monday.

Team Buccaneers, with their boat

“The Black Swan” won the Best Boat Construction and finished second in the race, whilst “Titanic II” from Team Mayday floated beautifully and wreaked havoc with their water pistols and flour bombs.

The Lea Updates

Facility Changes Making The Lea More Accessible

Scouts Tasmania is excited to announce the new facilities that have recently been implemented throughout The Lea Scout Centre in Hobart.

The Scouts Tasmania Branch applied for, and were successful in receiving a grant that allowed our organisation to update beds, toilets and other amenities in our Scout Centre over January.

As the Lea is widely used by the community, several parties including schools, Mosaic and ParaQuad amongst others were consulted to ensure as many communities as possible would benefit from the grant.

Nic Street, Minister for Sport and Recreation joined Nigel Clutterbuck, President of Scouts Tasmania, along with Phil Harper, Chief Commissioner for Scouts Tasmania, to inspect the improvements that were undertaken through the grant from the Tasmanian Government.

All individuals and communities involved, including Scouts Tasmania as a whole, are greatly appreciative towards the local Government and the ParaQuad Association of Tasmania Inc for all of their support. Scouts Tasmania also Thanks Nic Street for his involvement in the arrangement.

We couldn’t have made this improvement without the grant and can’t wait to share these new facilities with the public.

“Scouts Tasmania approached us before heading down the path of making accessibility improvements at their property south of Hobart. We offered some on-site advice, and the results meant, now more people will be able to use its accommodation, meeting rooms and activity facilities.”

Cruise Camp

Scouts & Ventures Sail the Tamar River

During the holidays our Scouts and Venturers participated in the tri-annual cruise camp. The camp was run over 5 days on the Tamar River/Kanamaluka.

We were also joined by 10 scouts and venturers from South Australia. Alongside the main camp, Hannah also ran her adventurous journey.

Day 1 - We sailed around Deviot and then stayed there for the night.

Day 2 - We sailed from Deviot to Port Dalrymple. It was a long day against the tide and a slight panic when the safety boat stopped working, but the youth members showed some great leadership!

Day 3 – This was a relaxing day. We sailed to George Town for fish and chips and to top up supplies, then back to Port Dalrymple.

Day 4 – This was a big day! We participated in the George Town Safari (race).

Then sailed back to Deviot where we took the boats out. We slept the night back at hall.

Day 5 – We cleaned the boats and headed home to sleep!

Everyone had a great time and hopefully learnt some new sailing skills. Thanks so much to the leaders for organising and the South Australian crew for joining us. We look forward to the next camp in 3 years time.

Swimming Carnival

Splashing, Swimming and Winning!

The Northern Scout Groups once again held their annual Swimming Carnival at the Riverside Aquatic centre.

The night has events designed for all age groups. Throughout the night youth members compete in races, activities such as, relays, ring toss and more. Free water-slide rides are a crowd favourite.

A great night to encourage group cooperation and individual challenge.

The night was well attended, with representatives from all the groups in the district. It was a perfect night for the carnival, after a 30°C day!

Norfolk Plains Scout Group

The Norfolk Plains Scout Unit was formed in October 2020 combining the Cressy, Perth and Evandale Scouting units.

The first task for our new unit was to find a name that was unique to the Northern Midlands district. With lots of ideas proposed, we settled with “Norfolk Plains” which is a historic farming district surrounding the local villages on the Macquarie, South Esk and Liffey rivers of northern Tasmania.

Some of our Scouts favourite activities include building and programming robotic vehicles, making catapults with spars and lots of gamesespecially ones in the dark!

We are really looking forward to attending the Scout Regatta in Snug, and also getting back on to Scout Island at Cora Lynn for a camp after the big floods submerged it last year. Please drop in and say G’day if you are in the area (Scouts: Thursday 6:30-8:30pm, Venturers: Wednesday 7:00-9:00pm).

Founders Day

Baden Powelld

Robert Baden-Powell, Chief Scout of the World and Scouting Tasmania’s patron, was born February 22nd, 1857. We take this opportunity to commemorate the dedication he gave to Scouting and celebrate this date as Founders Day across the world.

Locally, our Groups across the state chose to celebrate in various ways, some holding a BBQ, others hosted activity days, with a parade to open and close the event.

“This evening we all come together at Kingston Beach to commemorate Founders Day, the birthday of Scouting founder Baden Powell. Our ceremony concluded with an investiture and a link up from Cubs to Scouts.

After the ceremony the Cubs and Joeys went for a short walk along the Alum Cliffs track whilst the Scouts and Venturer’s got in some boating practice before the upcoming Scout and Guide Regatta.”

-Leader, Blackmans Bay

The North West Groups along the coast and inland around Devonport all came together at Fulton Park, Forth to celebrate as a large group, participating in team games after the parade.

“To celebrate Founder’s Day (BP’s birthday) Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers from Mersey and Leven Districts met all at Fulton Park.”

Smithton Scouts | Positions to be Filled

Smithton Scouts Group

Located on the North West of Tasmania has vacant positions in all Units, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers. Due to lack of Leader support, Smithton Scout Group will be forced to go into recession if all positions for both leaders and the Group committee aren’t filled soon.
