Details: This was our third troop at Kilcoy Show, but there were a couple of differences this year. For most of us it was our first troop in public for over a year, and our first troop with covid protocols. The show committee also requested Blue Cards, which was fine but a change to last time. The facilities and layout were the same, and we had a good change room to work with.

For the covid protocols we exchanged high fives and handshakes for waves and salutes. We didn't hand over props for photos, and we basically avoided touching anyone. We also didn't carry buckets this year, to err on the side of caution around handling money. Initially we had the intention to social distance, but we were outdoors and its simply impractical when your main purpose is to be in photos. And stopping that 2 year old from hugging the Jawa just wasn't worth the tears.

Again this year the crowd was small but friendly. Many of the rides and activities were sponsored by local businesses, and were either subsidised or free. Its a great family day out, well worth the drive.

A special thanks to the our GA troopers, they were a big help getting photos with little kids and they worked hard all day. Also thanks to Buzzard's friend May, she tagged along to watch how we work, and she took some of the photos in the album.

Thanks everyone for making the trip, and for your enthusiasm during the day.

YUP!!! 

Teiwaz had a new scout kit - and it was like he had never trooped a day in his life as a scout!!!! 

Duras kitted up - joined us in a group photo - then his belt succumbed to what he has labeled a “fatsplosion”!!!!
Peace FNG Peace
