REGAL '06 - Skills
As part of the wide game, patrols were required to create a ceremony from a list:
Here are the ceremonies the patrols created.
OPs number off, take the number of steps of their number forward
Flag bearer calls commands
Start off in straight line symbolising we are all equal, end up in a V formation symbolising we are reaching out to the community
Flag bearer proceeds as the chairperson of a Senior Guide Unit does.
Formation: Junior Guide ring
Welcome Parents and District Leader
Hands traced and put on coloured paper to create a rainbow for the girl to enter through
Girls brought up by Patrol Leader and introduced to Leader/s
All the girls recite their Promise with the girl.
Recieve their badges and books are welcomed into the Unit.
Followed by a campfire.
Both Units present as well as the parents of the girl going up
Place: in a park that has a bridge
Junior Guides holding candles on one side of the bridge
Guides on the other side of the bridge
Guide Leader walks over the bridge to the Junior Guide, holding a lantern. She meets the Junior Guide who has walked through her Unit ranks and said goodbye. The Guide Leader guides her over the bridge to the Guide Unit.
The Guide Leader presents her to the Unit and gives her the Making Tracks badge. She then invites the Junior Guide Unit and the parents to join in a campfire.
[Note from webmaster: this sounds very much like a Bridging Ceremony, which is used by Girl Scouts in the USA, except that Bridging Ceremonies seem to have several girls going up at the same time. See a description here.]
Theme: ‘Red Carpet’
