Cubs celebrate 75 years anniversary since Wolf-Cubs was started. 1991 also became an option for Girls to join all sections as long as there was the option for them to progress through the Group with the sections having female leaders (i.e. for a girl to move from Cubs to Scouts there must be a female leader in the Scout section).


The rebuilt Randwick HQ re-opened by the youngest member of the Group, Beaver Scout Ross Bingham and Derek Yardley-Wright District Chairman (previously District Commissioner).
