Chris' Investiture At Calder Park Raceway

The Unit had been here before, Chris' uniform had even been here before (it used to be Dean's) but nothing quite prepared the Unit for this investiture. For those that don't know, every Friday night Calder Park Raceway holds legal, offstreet drags. Calder Park is only 20 minutes north of our hall and given Chris' family's like of this type of activity it was a natural choice for Chris' investiture.

The Intrepid Leader arranged with Calder's management to get us in for the right price and hold the Investiture on the track when the festivities for the night were over. What he didn't count on was the 'oil down' in the middle of the racing which gave us the opportunity to hold the Investiture while everyone was watching. There's never a dull moment at 1st Deer Park.

Earlier in the night, the Unit sat around watching the racing.

Some of the action on the night.


Then it was onto the track for the Investiture in front of everyone.

With a bit of help from Mark, even Bouf took part in the Scout Promise.

Then it was congratulations all round.

The Intrepid Leader got to present all the badges.

Kristy presented Chris with his epaulettes.

And in the absence of a Group Leader, Aaron presented Chris with his scarf.

Chris' dad congratulates him on a fine effort. Thanks go to John also for the investiture photos.
