Reaching MOP to All.
30th Apr 2013
Since the concept of MOP reached to Yangchenphug Scouts Association the YSA is working in reaching the concept to the Scouts and general public.
The Yangchenphug Scouts Association have started using the Prominent Sign of MOP in the field of Scouting and on 27th April during the Marching Scouts of Yangchenphug Scouts Association were prepared and marched with the respective flags including MOP flag.
As we had the Commitment ceremony on 5th April the MoP was introduced to YSA formally since then YSA started working on it.
The YSA is planning to have 5th April as the MOP day for the Association every year as it reached to YSA on this date.
When the MOP sign was brought to the notice of general students all were pleased to see the flag and their curiosity was paid to them by giving brief idea about MOP.
The annual athletic gathers the large number of audience and the Scout Executive proposed to have scout March pass with the Scout related flags and MOP and it was approved. For the first time scout had Scout Marching starting this year and will continue in future. The MOP flag will hold its firmness.
The practicing started from 15th April.
