DCMBnr_WEB.jpg 'Middlesbrough District Scouts'

Here we are again with another show and this time it is a little different for
me and a very proud moment as I take on the task as District Commissioner
Previously the show represented East and West Middlesbrough Districts
joining together to put on the show though recently the two Districts merged
to form the new 'Middlesbrough' District.

As a Scout I never fancied being in the show but decided to give it a go as a
Venture Scout and I wish I'd done it earlier because I love being 'one of the
gang'! This is my l0th show since then and it's no secret that I look forward to
the next show as soon as the last one finishes.

It is great to see so many people, from children to adults ( to some older
adults ) still get so much from being part of the show. Being part of the show
means all people from The Production team, Backstage Crew,
Choreographers, Musical Director and Orchestra, Wardrobe Staff, Business
Team and The People who administrate during rehearsals along with the
tea-making volunteers.

Though most importantly there are others who make this even more
achievable. The Gang themselves, all Scouts & Guides as they entertain you
this week and you the audience for coming to be entertained. Thanks to Chris
& Geoff and their team for all their efforts, it's much appreciated. They
continue with a show which originated with ideas from the late Ralph Reader

Scouting celebrates 100 years in 2007 and
this will be a great year for celebrations. For
something to last so well over 100 years plus
says a lot for what we all do in Scouting.

Good Luck to all the Gang, I am with you all

Matthew Mitchell (Mitch )
District Commissioner
