Games Night, Queens’ College, Thursday 30th January

Bring your favourite board/card games and join us for an evening that will either be chill or intensely tactical depending on how many mathmos turn up…

Craft Evening, Cambridge District Scout HQ (tbc), Monday 3rd February

Previous CUSAGC craft evenings have included hama beads and making spoons and woggles. What will it be this time? Come along and find out.

Annual Dinner, Royal Cambridge Hotel, Saturday 8th February

A nice meal, speeches from the club president and from a special guest, and awards for everything from incompetence to ‘dubious acquisition’. What’s not to like? If you haven’t already booked on you’ll need to do it soon!

Ice Skating, Cambridge Ice Arena, Saturday 15th February (tbc)

Get your skates on! We’re going to be checking out the (relatively) new permanent ice rink in Cambridge.

Roman Rally, Bath, 21st – 23rd February

Want to escape the madness of Cambridge for a couple of days? This term’s Rally (a weekend camp) will be hosted by Bath, and as always there’ll be loads of different activities to choose from. Find out more and book on here. If you have any questions contact ssago@cusagc.org.uk.

Pancake Day, Cambridge District Scout HQ (tbc), Tuesday 25th February (or thereabouts)

Sadly we no longer have industrial quantities of golden syrup so we’ll just have to make do with normal quantities 🙁 But the pancakes will still be delicious.

Forward Challenge, Comberton Scout Hut, Saturday 29th February

This is a big incident hike event for Guides and Scouts, and we need all the help we can get! Helpers will normally spend the day getting teams to do weird and interesting tasks, some of which will involve ducks. You’ll even get a badge and doughnuts. Fill out the helpers form here.

SSAGO goes to Spoons, The Regal, Thursday 5th March

This is a kind of Wetherspoon-based secret santa, when scout and guide clubs across the country go to Spoons and order each other food. Brace yourself for many peas. So, so many peas.

End of term punt lunch, a punt, Saturday 7th March

Celebrate making it through yet another Cambridge term with a picnic in a punt. Hopefully it might even be somewhat warm…
