The 2012-2013 session of the 3rd Inverness Boys Brigade came to an end on Friday 17th May with our Annual Display and Parent’s Night.

This year our Chief Guest was Inspector David Ogilvie from Police Scotland; David told some interesting stories in his report as well as giving some very positive comments on the attitude and behaviour of all the Boys.

53 Boys were in attendance at the display and it was great to see more than 100 parents, grandparents and friends packed into the hall.

Our theme this year was dance and all sections took part in their own items based around the theme, and at one point both Peter Donald and David Ogilvie were on the floor strutting their stuff!

Once again the highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Queen’s Badge to Ross Baxter. Ross only joined the 3rd a couple of years ago but he has worked tirelessly in that time and was rewarded with the Queen’s badge – he is a credit to his family, the Company and to Church and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them all the very best for the future.

President’s Badges were also presented to Dominic Syred and Craig Fraser.

The Boys have also taken part in the Battalion Golf and Sports competitions; Ross Baxter won the U-19 golf and the Junior Section Boys won their section of the sports – well done to you all.

The staff are all off for all well earned rest but we’ll be back raring to go again in August / September!!

A few of the Company Section Boys have been busy over the last few weeks doing some voluntary work – some moved gravel from the side of the Church to the areas at the front, while others assisted at a water station at the Inverness Half Marathon.

The Boys have also taken part in the Battalion swimming gala, badminton and table tennis competitions; the most notable successes were in the table tennis with Craig Fraser finishing runner-up in the Under-15 and Ross Baxter winning the Under-19 age groups.

Five of our senior boys also formed the Colour Party at the Annual Battalion Parade to Dalneigh Church. It was a really cold day and the Boys did the Company and the Battalion Proud.

Well done today to all the boys in the different age groups of the Battalion indoor football competitions.

The senior boys team came second overall without even winning a game which is some achievement..... ;)

As the boys took part in the Highland Battalion fund raising sponsored walk/run, Captain Gary McAra decided to enter a team of the officers into the Heartbeat Challenge to help raise funds for the Company and the Cardiology Unit at Raigmore Hospital. Well

The Heartbeat Challenge involves running / walking 12 miles from Nairnshire to Moy Estate, crossing Saddle Hill and Pulpit Hill with a 10 mile return cycle along the old A9. Well done to Denis Boyce, Calum Fraser and Gary McAra for completing the Challenge in approximately 5 hours.

The  new session of the 3rd  Inverness Boys Brigade started again for the Boys of the Company Section at our Annual Camp which was held this year at Carrbridge

Camp attendees 2012 

24 Boys and Staff attended the weekend, which saw us all partake in some outdoor games, a mountain bike ride, indoor sports and swimming at Craig MacLean Leisure Centre in Grantown and the usual trip to Landmark on Sunday.

It was great that the Company Chaplain (Dr. Donald) was able to join us on the Saturday where he showed off his football and basketball skills.

The weather was kind to us and an enjoyable weekend was had by one and all. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for their help over the weekend.
