The legacy of 3rd Hampton Hill shooting continues with, Issac G, Ruth H and Lilly P selected to represent Greater London South West (GLSW) at the Annual Scout Intercounty Rifle and Pistol Shooting Competition held at Aldersley on the 14th April 2013. The GLSW Squad Captain is Jean Jenkins of 2nd Malden Scouts who has been organising a team for a number of years from across the County that consistently does well; in 2011 saw an overall Bronze and in 2012 the team triumphantly returned with Gold medals having defeated the hot contenders by the narrowest of margins, 1 point!
For 2013 a mostly new GLSW squad was formed with intensive training taking place at Surbiton Postal Rifle Club during February and March. Despite the relative inexperience and youth of the team it was clear that there was plenty of talent heading to the Midlands on an early Sunday morning and although not in the medals this time they did not disappoint at all, coming a very credible 4th place out of 14 teams and only a few points off the Bronze medal spot.
Well done to Jean Jenkins and the whole GLSW squad and we look forward to seeing you back at the top in the future.

We need You! (Please Can you Help us at Beavers?)
Lesley E (Assistant Beaver Leader in the Beaver Colony early group) has decided to step down at the end of the summer term. In order for the early group to continue in September 2013 we need to find at least one more Assistant Leader, or Sectional Assistants but preferably more.
If you are currently thinking “Aaarrgghhh !!! I cannot think of anything worse than being a beaver leader” then could you please have a mental run through your list of friends/family or work colleagues and see if anyone springs to mind that would like to have a go?
If you are thinking “mmmmmm that could be interesting” then please do get in touch with us (because it is interesting and lots of fun-honestly!!). Please do come along, get involved and see how the Beaver Colonies run and think about helping us.
If we are unable to recruit at least one adult (preferably two) by September it is very likley that the early beaver colony will need to close.
We look forward to hearing from you.
(on behalf of the Beaver Leadership Team and all at 3HH).

Hi all, after a brief pause last year, we’ll be once again running our fun group shooting competition on Saturday 11th May 2013. This is an enjoyable event with at least four different shooting activities and medals in a number of categories for those crack-shots out there. We’ll be target shooting with both rifles and pistols, enjoying a field shooting competition outside and combining this with the nerve-racking knockout competition. Adults don’t need to have shot before so there’s no need to worry if you’re a complete novice. If you’d like to enter the competition please return the entry slip on the flyer along with a declaration for adults and/or a permission to shoot form for the under 18s.
Please note the closure date for entries and be aware that any entries received after that date may be refused.

All, as usual we’ll be collecting these vouchers as this superb scheme saves us money in being able to order sports, games and camping equipment and it doesn’t even cost us postage! Please do collect your vouchers and post them in the box in the HQ. What would be really great is if you can batch them up with rubber bands, adding a note of the number of vouchers enclosed as this will save us hours of counting. Please do get these in before the closing date (to be advised) though as every year we waste quite a number of vouchers as they come in after we’ve been forced to place our order. Many thanks in advance and just remember, every voucher donated helps to keep your subs down!

To All at 3HH
Spring Cleaning and Maintenance at 3HH on Sat 2nd and Sun 3 March 2013.
With the camping season getting close and hopefully better weather on the way now is the time for us to undertake a Spring Clean.
We are very fortunate to have a wonderful HQ and to own lots of kit and from time to time we need to undertake a clean & tidy of both the HQ and all our equipment.
Please can you spare us an hour or two over the weekend of 2nd – 3rd March 2013?
If every family gave just an hour each we would achieve a great deal and be very thankful.
The Days will run as follows;
Start at 1000 run through till about 1230 for a lunch stop. Resume about 1330 till about 1630.
Please RSVP (saying which day(s) and times you can help) via Section Leaders so we have an idea of who can help when (times) and which day(s).
The sorts of jobs we hope to do (subject to the weather) are;
Maintenance Activities on our Camping gear – simple repairs, checking kit, sorting & sharpening pegs and generally getting ready for Camping!
Simple Jobs around the HQ – general clearing, removal of clutter, cleaning and tidying throughout with possibly some other simple maintenance jobs as well.
Please wear old clothes, suitable footwear (i.e. hike boots or similar if you have them) and if you have them suitable work gloves.
Members of the 3HH Team will be on hand to co-ordinate/guide/manage/supervise and assist over the two days.
We will supply Tea, Coffee, Hot Choc, Soft Drinks and Biscuits.
(We also hope to offer Hot Dogs for those with us during the lunch period).
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on one or both days.
Very Many Thanks.

Firstly let me say a very big and Heartfelt THANKS to all of the 3HH Team for all your help, support, hard work, efforts and enthusiasm for Scouting at 3rd Hampton Hill during 2012. Very much appreciated. We continue to be very successful and to grow and this is due to all the volunteers at 3HH who so kindly give up and ‘share’ their time to make wonderful things happen at 3HH. A word of thanks also to your families that also help and support you and allow you to share your time with 3HH.
As the year draws to a close we can all reflect on another busy, successful and enjoyable year of scouting. I know that all the leadership teams are already working on the Spring Programmes and I know there will be many interesting and exciting things to do! Keep an eye on the Web Page for Announcements and Updates . . .
I wish you all a very happy, peaceful and enjoyable Christmas.

You’ve done the parents taxi bit……. Yawn!!!
You’ve watched in the wings……. Ho hum!!!
You’ve wanted a go yourselves……. Huh, fat chance with the kids there!!!
Well here’s your chance! We’re offering a day’s air rifle instruction…..
For Adults Only!
On Sunday 17th February 2013, for the princely sum of £20 for the day, there will be a day of shooting led by 3rd Hampton Hill’s finest instructors. The exact programme is still to be set however we currently expect this to go as follows. Start time will be 11am.
Morning – Safety rules followed by instruction – dominant eye, aiming, breathing techniques, trigger release, followed by how to put these all together and shoot standing.
Afternoon – of shooting ‘games’ and competitions with a finish time, depending on how much you’re enjoying yourself, of between 3 and 4pm.
Tea, coffee and biscuits aplenty will be provided but you will need to bring your own lunch.
This will be an introduction to the Olympic sport of target shooting and an excellent opportunity to build your skills ready for 3rd Hampton Hill’s own competition in May 2013. If the bug really bites we can introduce you to a number of clubs locally where you can continue to build your skills, but be warned this sport is addictive!
Numbers are strictly limited on this one and will be on a first come, first served basis to ensure everyone gets a reasonable amount of shooting, so early application is advised. Please note, that from a safety point of view, children will not be allowed in the HQ on this day.
Please see the flyer along with the shooting declaration and get these back to your section leader ASAP.
Our open group competition will be in May 2013 and for advance notice, please see the attached flyer but be aware that the fee isn’t fixed yet and we aren’t yet taking entries.

2011 saw our greatest championships with many successes including team pistol and rifle champions and overall junior champions; never could we surpass such success, well definitely not two years running anyway…. Or could we? Well we definitely fielded our strongest ever Explorer team this year 2012, so whilst we hoped for success there we expected a quiet year for our Scout troop as our previous successful team were now in Explorers. So a wet weekend and variable sounding results over the weekend took us to the Sunday results. Read the rest of this entry »
