For our Guider Meeting this year our Commissioner had a few cool ideas.
The first is that we were going to train right before the meeting. Our training adviser spent the first half hour doing a SafeGuide training. It's a great idea to put training in a Guider Meeting - first of all we are all there to begin with, and secondly - it's always important to do the training. Makes it a bit easier to do the leading that we're trying to do!
Then we had our meeting.
Then we had a gift exchange. For the gifts our challenge was that the gift we brought for exchange had to be handmade by us. I made a scarf, and others bought homemade jams, chocolates, bubble bath, Christmas decorations, and a decorated planter with plant!
One of the other leaders made up a pass left/right game using all of our names and it was a blast!
