blogger crashing

I seem to have fixed the browser problem by going into New Post through Edit rather than selecting it on the dashboard... but I have been having blogger issues.

Selecting 'new post' has caused my browser to crash repeatedly.

Exciting News! (to me)

Our Brownie pack won the local annual competition to win a trophy!

Last year I think there was an art competition of some sort.  A few years prior to that we had a trip with the division to the bowling alley and the pack with the highest lane score won the trophy.

This year we organised a Basketball Tournament, with pom-pom making craft and cheerleading (taught by a dance instructor) plus some music and hot dogs.

It sounded fun, but I had to work!  My gig was good fun and in a place I love with people I like, but I'd been excited about the game - we'd discussed it at a meeting and it sounded like fun to me - and I felt guilty that I wasn't there as I'd been one of the people most keen on the idea.

My assistant guider took them with our YL and unit helper so we were well covered for numbers and I knew the girls were safe.

I helped a bit by doing a timetable (actually by tweaking a timetable our commissioner (boss Brownie leader) had done so it worked with the number of teams who had signed up).  It went like this...

That looks fun, well done your girls!

Apparently it was not that much fun (except we won and the guiders at our pack got really into it which the girls liked) because the cheerleading wasn't well thought out - the teacher didn't really know what she was doing and hadn't come up with ideas... which is fatal with a big group of kids!

Also they weren't allowed outdoors.

So when I expected them to be learning dances and moves (and probably some chants) they were sat at the sides watching other matches. Which would be ok for a while but not for 3 hours.

I'd expected there to be music - there wasn't. I actually checked the day before that there would be music (as I'd have asked my lot to bring some if not) and was told there would be. My guiders think that would have made a big difference.

So: While they liked the idea and are delighted to have won, and our Brownies had fun there is definite room for improvement for next time round.

There's always room for improvement. But congrats to the girls anyway for winning.
