to other information about previous reunions

Each year the Gilwell Reunion of Wood Badge holders and others visit Gilwell to meet and also to learn of new developments and opportunities in Scouting. The Reunion often attracts guests and members from overseas.

A galaxy of yellow balloons were seen ascending from Gilwell Park on Saturday 6 September during the Annual Gilwell Reunion.   The 79th Gilwell Reunion was on the theme of Commonwealth Capers top mark the Queen's Jubilee.   Once again, the UK-Uganda Network was well represented in the Commonwealth Marquee, the main feature was the launch of Uganda 2003.  Marvin Takel and his team put on various displays to highlight opportunities and activities for the event.   To promote support of the Network, customers were invited to have a balloon filled with helium and participate in a contest for the furthest sent with a return tag by the 30 September 2002.  The result will be announced at our meeting in October.   We were pleased to welcome for the day Michael and Godfrey being hosted by Eric and Marion and they were more than delighted to have the pleasure of being introduced and, indeed, photographed with our Chief Scout.   We are grateful for the new UK-Uganda Network banner which we were able to erect outside the entrance to the marquee so we could easily be found by our many friends and supporters.
