The award was presented at Government House by His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley, Governor of New South Wales, as Chief Scout for New South Wales.

Quarks is now a Rover with the 1st Epping Crew but still wears the 1st East Ryde Scarf. Well done on this great achievement!

A special presentation will be made by the 1st Easy Ryde group at the all-sections fun day this coming weekend.
