25th June 2000 - Rover squires; Huzaimi, Ayu and Vivi today received their Rovers epaullete and are considered as a full fledge rover meaning there will always be ready to do service at all times in line with the Rovers slogan "Service". The ceremony was completed by Sufian, also an ADC for Kota Kinabalu. Cub Scout Ira Shahira from Cub-E also received her tenderfoot. Congratulations to all!

1st Cub-E Pack Camp
The E-Cubs had their first ever Cub Pack camp experience on 24th to 25th June 2000 at their base at Farida's Bed and Breakfast, Likas. Some of the activities held were obstacle course, tracking signs, basic cooking, campfire night, basic marching besides the usual games and singing. The cubs really enjoyed themselves that one night is sure not enough.

E-Cubs visit to the State Museum
23rd July 2000- Almost all the cubs went for a visit to the State Museum. Two other rovers and a sister of one of the Cub who is a Scout also turned up to assist in the visit. The cubs learned about the history of mankind, the State, the past Wars, the various cultures and religions, arts and most interesting the traditional houses models.

First round of the Echo Go-kart race was held on 7 May 2000. 13 krew members, 4 guys and 9 gals, had at least five rounds of fun with the go kart. It was a first experience for all who took part. Farouk proves to be unbeatable in the go kart. The second round was held 20th August, this time with more guys and some friends from England. Unfortunately two crashes has turned the event to a very unjoyable one - not physically injured but the unnecessary huge cost the Crew had to pay. "That's it, this is a rip-off! We are not going for go-kart anymore. It is just not worth it!" says Farouk. The Crew instead will be planning for a simple fund raising project to cover the cost.
