This brings back good old memories I have in the 01 Kinta Troop. We have started with little faith and a lot of quarrelling but eventually it grows into producing good scouts, organizing big events and achieving far greater than what we can do alone. The main remedy is TEAM WORK.

Definitely brings back memories...all good ones. Even when we bicker....because we are always thinking and have strong opinions on what is good for the troop. Pressures the other to do one better :-D.

A lot of faith in each other ....carried us through the good and bad times. Amen to team work and great friends (or dare I say family :-)).
