Rangers Practice Cooking

In anticipation of the Area level Iron Chef competition for Pathfinders and Rangers in which girls form patrols to create delicious meals on camping equipment, both the 14th Pathfinders and the 12th Rangers had meetings last week to practice their skills. The Rangers have some pictures to share from when they took over a leader’s kitchen.

For the practice, leaders gave feedback to the girls on how to improve their creations. One of the Rangers’ creations was called “Thai-ish Rice” which got kudos from the leaders for its coconut flavour and the siriacha spooky face (the competition’s theme is “Frankenstein’s Masterpiece”). They would have liked to see the rice better cooked though — the crunchy rice wasn’t as appetizing as it could have been.

The biggest success of the evening was that all the girls had a great time and showed great teamwork in the kitchen. The cinnamon apple dessert was quite tasty, and the leaders liked some of the creativity that they saw.

Will Burnaby Mountain’s mixed Pathfinder/Ranger patrol bring home the trophy? It will be even trickier to cook on the camp equipment, outside in the cold… but these girls are up for the challenge. More importantly they are ready to have fun.

 

Pathfinder Kick-off Event

The “Guiding Year” is almost upon us now and registrations are going great in Burnaby Mountain District. We had our first day of promotion at Lougheed Town Centre today and will be back on Sunday, meeting the community.

We are especially promoting our Pathfinder unit at this time and have come up with an awesome way for girls of that age to try out a taste of our program to see if they’re a good fit before committing to registration.
