Campfire Night Secrets

Since I will only be back in Penang on 8th of December ,I can't really share some of my ideas and experience with the present scouts in this particular area .Hopefully, you guys can learn something out of it .

*Priority in Order

Strictly no 'Hokkien' or 'Mandarin'.Most of you don't realise that using Hokkien and Mandarin lowers down the quality of your sketch .Just use our Universal Language so that everyone is able to understand and pay attention to the whole performance .Make sure that you speak clearly and it is loud enough for everyone to hear .Always check the audio quality in a CD player after burning from computer (Don't be stupid to test it with the desktop CD player .Common sense).Dont be surprised if the audio sound is a bit too soft .Use the program 'Wavepad' to increase the sound volume .

Never wear your Camp-T ,scarf or your basic scout uniform for your performances .It is very important to wear other different clothes/costumers for different parts of the sketch to attract attention of the audience .Make sure that the intervals between parts are long enough for you to change into another attire.You can always try wearing double layer to make things much more easier .The past 3 CTCs I have been to ,I am quite disappointed to say that some didn't even bother to have COSTUMES! All of their actors/actresses were wearing Camp-T.As far as I know , most of the audience will begin to fall asleep or wander somewhere else if the sketch is dull and boring .


This is also one of the most important things to attract attention of the audience .During CTC 2005, I was under Kelvin Lim's patrol who had won Best Sketch and Advertisement if I was not mistaken .Well the reason we won was because we had a total of 4 Cardboard boxes full of props .Sketches don't have to be funny to attract attention but having as many props as possible helps a lot.Always arrange props for different scenes in different boxes to make things easier during intervals .Little small details like this can be very important for all you know .

4.Face expression & Confidence

Always look at your audience .Create a bond between them and yourself.Don't keep staring at your own patrol members or look down through out the entire performance . The audience need to feel involved in the sketch .

So what are you're still doing now? Get your ass moving and design some props .

To be continued with Dance & Cosplay / Fashion Show

Please impress us (Ex-scouts ), as last year the only good performances were by the EXCOs.Other than that , everything else was just Kerachut standard .

53rd Jamboree On The Air/ 14th Jamboree On The Internet

What's up ?

I will just make this short . I was updated that the troop participated in JOTA last week ,combining with PCGHS (Thank God you guys combined with the right school) and here are the following results :-

Best Modern Cooking

3rd Place in Totem Pole

I know some of you expected better results but just be satisfied with what you got after all , you guys know you were the ones to beat in that camp .It isn't easy defending the JOTA Overall Crown but please bare in mind you guys did a great job .

Now , go and study for your finals as you wouldn't want to screw your future up =)Best of luck !

Here a picture of the troop's totem pole.Please IGNORE THE CHICKS.Look at the totem pole on the right . That troop's scouts surely OTAK SQUARE .LOL.

CGL Gathering & Campfire 2010

Congrats to our troop on obtaining the Runners-up trophy for CGL Gathering and Campfire last week. Besides that, we also won the Best Modern Dance and Best Cleanliness. Special thanks to those who came.
I know this is not the result most of you guys wanted but look on the bright side. We managed to get second place with only 4 days of preparation due to Mid-term exams and not to mention the number of scouts we have compared to the other troops like sxi and chung ling.

Don't be sad guys , be proud and fight on for the glory of the troop !~


Speak like a Leader

I hope form 4 and upcoming leaders take an initiative to attend this event tomorrow .It would be helpful for your future and in scouts . Jason asked me , how to recruit more members during RD . In my opinion the main reason we cant recruit members is because the way you guys carry yourselves and the way you speak when recruiting members .

Its free . And it is like what 3 hours . Would it kill you ?

Hope to see you guys there .


PGCHS Campfire 2010

Congrats to our troop on winning PCGHS Campfire Overall. Its about time our troop won something big in gatherings .

Good Job .

Morning Colours

I think most of you guys would know what is Morning Colours . 'OH, that is the time where we blo in front of the flag ' . Do you know what is the real purpose we carry out Morning Colours ? Why is it only our troop performs it and 1GTS & 7GTS doesnt?

I copied this from somewhere.

Troop's Current Condition

Its Andrew here using Chong's account . It has been ages since I wrote something here. There are some stuff I would like to voice out about our troop and suggest ways how newly appointed leaders and members are able to repair the troop .For some reasons, ideas keep swarming into my brain after I left the troop.

Scout Car Grand Prix Makes Comeback

It may come as a surprise to many of you but the much anticipated return of the prestigious Scout Car Grand Prix could very much be just around the corner with the help of a few very successful and dedicated former Penang Free School scouts.
