9th Irene Troop can trace it’s roots back to 1921 (Although we are rather certain that we did exist before then). Our current scarf was registered with the SASA in about 1950 and we have been in our scout hall since 1958. We have a proud history of many springboks, and of quickly rising in the ranks at Kontiki (The annual endurance raft “race” at Murry Park in Springs, South Africa). In 1999 we were placed 97th out of 100 teams at Kontiki, in 2000 we rose to somewhere in the 50’s, in 2001 we were somewhere in the 20’s, and in 2002 we won Kontiki! Since then we have consistently been in the top 10 teams at Kontiki.
