Hello and Welcome again! 

The Crew has completely revamped its homepage to give it a more profesional look and more beneficial and informative for viewers. The Crew has also provide a special page especially for it members - page which contains information and notice boards. Other new feature is the Echo Forum, a forum dedicated for Scouts.The Crew welcomes everyone to participate in the Forum for the good of Scouting. 

This year too we welcome 8 new members or Rover Squires as a result of the Registration Day held at 16 May 1999. They will go through a series of test including Vigil before they will be invested as a Full Rover. The Investiture Ceremony is set to be around September. Hopefully with this new batch of Rovers, the Crew will move even further, Insya Allah. 

At the mean time, happy reading (And Scouting!)

Eight members of the Crew gave a helping hand to the Kota Kinabalu District Rotary Club in their annual Youth Leadership Training Camp (YLTH) at Kokol Hill, approximately 15km from Kota Kinabalu, between 4th tp 6th of June 1999. They were led by Ahmed Farouk (Leader) followed by Sufian, Farah, Eva, Adelia, Vivi, Azrol@Boy and Razali@Pau. This Camp is also part of the Service test for the Rover Squires. Nearly 100 partipants attended the Camp. The Crew's job was to set up all the  40 Camps including the dining camp, organised the Camp fire night, jungle trekking and cleaning up the camp site; and they really did a good job! The camp also provide a unique experience for the Crew as the camp site is at approximately 800 metres above sea level, thus adopting quite a cool atmosphere.
