Bunjil: I cannot see any information that suggests to me that steps have been taken to resolve the issue/s associated with this placement - one or more of the following applies:

             - Cache Owner unable to maintain cache 
             - No response from the cache owner.
             - No cache to find or log to sign.
             - It has been more than 28 days since the last owner note.
             - Cache has been abandoned by cache owner/cache in disrepair

As a result I am archiving this cache to keep from continually showing up in search lists and to also prevent it from blocking other cache placements.

If you wish to repair/replace/make available the cache sometime in the next 28 days, just contact a reviewer (by email and include GC number in cache name) and, assuming it still meets the current guidelines, the reviewer will be happy to unarchive it.

If there are components or remnants of the cache and you haven't already done so, please return to the GZ and collect the cache (or remnants). We don't want to litter our environment with Geotrash.

Should you wish to replace the cache after 28 days has passed please create a new cache listing so it can be reviewed as a new cache.

Geocache Description:

This is the eighth cache in this series to show just how many scouts we have in Australia.
My kids are part of this great movement and I am a leader as well. Some of these kids have shown an interest in geocaching so why not help them participate.

Scouting came to Australia in 1908, the year the first Boy Scout training handbook "Scouting for Boys" was published in England.
Baden-Powell visited Australia in 1912 and in later years (1927, 1931 and 1934) to encourage the extension of the movement in Australia. Initially each Australian state branch was directly and individually responsible to scout headquarters in London.
A federal council of state branch nominees was formed in 1922 to achieve co-operation and coordinated at a national level. The national body later appointed an Australian Commissioner. The Federal Scout Council functioned as a branch of the British Boys Scout Association. Australia became a member of the World Scout Organisation of Scout Movements (WOSM) in 1953 in its own right, and not as a branch of the British Scout Association.
In 1958, the adjuration of the Australian Boys Scout Association took place. In 1967, the national organisation was incorporated by Royal Charter. In 1971, the association changed its name to the Scout Association of Australia, although the official name was not changed until 2001, when the Royal Charter was amended through an Act of Parliament. The organisation is unofficially known as Scouts Australia.

The lefthand handshake
WHEN COLONEL BADEN-POWELL entered the capital city of the Ashanti people in 1890 he was met by one of the Chiefs who came to him holding out his left hand. B.-P. held out his right in return but the Chief said: "No, in my country the bravest of the brave shake with the left hand." So began the "left handshake" of the world-wide brotherhood of Scouts.

This hall is now used by the Gilbert and Sullivan society of Victoria as a home base.

Onto the cache, it is about twice the size of a film cannister and very well camo'd
