Broadcasting Brownies

Yesterday we went to our local radio station - the DJ that does the Saturday 10-2 show invited us in to see how things worked.

We split into 2 groups of 2 adults, 2 children-of-Guiders (that was a YL and a Guide in one group, a Guide and a Rainbow in the other) and 7 Brownies in each group - we arranged it fairly short notice so that was all the ones that could come.

We had an amazing time. And anyone who says men cannot multi-task has never met a DJ. Although his set list was all programmed in, he also chatted away to us in between being on air, took phone calls, edited them down, checked texts, checked the weather, checked the traffic cameras...and pressed all the buttons and slid all the levers.

The Brownies got to applaud, chatter, set the quiz question, have their voices turned into giggling chipmunks, pass opinion on the music played, talk about what they do at Brownies, about Christmas...all on air.

It counts as 20 points for Adventure 100, but more importantly, it counts as one of those experiences the girls just wouldn't have had without being Brownies.

What a high to end the year on!
