This is an annual event for Cubs from all over the Western Cape. There are many different activities, such as crafts, games, Cub skills, songs, etc.

The history of the Edward Shield

The concept of the Edward Shield competition was introduced in 1918 when the Cub branch was about 18 months old, following the model of the Gordon Shield for the Scout branch.

The Shield was purchased out of the balance of the funds collected to present a gift to Major Edwards on his retirement as Provincial Commissioner, and named in his honour - the Edwards Shield - as the Cape Peninsula's efficiency shield for Wolf Cubs.

The first annual Edward Shield competition took place in 1919 when it was won by 7th Cape Town Pack.

See this report of the Edward Shield in 1932.
