Wednesday Troop Annual Celebrations

Happy birthday to the Wednesday Troop which turned 43 Years old in January 2018! The Wednesday Troop was set up when Malahide’s scout membership had increased so much that it was decided to split the members into two troops, one that remained meeting on a Friday night and the other led by Mr Roy Glynn on a Wednesday night. This happened on Wednesday, 8th of January 1975.

Every year on the last Wednesday of January the Troop celebrate the “Troop Birthday Party” which includes their annual awards ceremony.

The winners of this year’s awards are as follows:

Sailor of the Year: Euan Burke
Oarsman of the Year: Joseph McLochlainn
Hiker of the Year: Jamie Wilson
Kayaker of the Year: Tadhg Geraghty
Seaman of the Year: Theo Allen
Scout of the Year: Patrick Harrold

Special congratulations to Evan Hopkins who was voted Leader of the Year by the troop, which was awarded in absentia.
