Scout camp Sfinx - 46
Lanškrou a okolí

Scout Centre Sphinx was founded by Paul Gütlem spring of 1968. Paul and his friends initially only wanted to help with recovery from Karlin and postwar Scouting, which existed in Karlin several centers. But as it turned out, no initiative by former Scouts did not take place and thus established a brand new center. The only thing that unites us is still with the time before 1968 the number of our centers because the former 46th center was just out of Karlin. The first years were very promising. About skautování was great interest, as reflected not only a large number of members and leaders (from the very beginning, we had 200 members without a few), but also assistance from the authorities (for example, we had 6 clubrooms). The initial enthusiastic amateurism in work with children in scout slowly matured proven method of keeping children's team. But with the restoration and normalization of the totalitarian state management was forced to our center in the autumn roce1971 close. Again resort to restore the Sphinx began in October 1989. And again on the initiative of Paul Gütla. The real start came in the spring of 1990 and since then it works today. Of the original founding executives have nobody was left in the active management of the Centre. Their role was taken over by former kids who grew up in the center of capable leaders. Also supply of material and experience of the business today is much greater than at the beginning (despite the floods in 2002 that literally wash away all our property).

More About Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a cool little landlocked country south of Germany and Poland, with a national addiction to pork and beer. Potatos, cabbage, and dumplings are close behind them, and they also have this great bar food called "utopenec." It means "a drowned man," it's pickled sausage with onions, perfect with some dark wheat bread and beer. The Czech bread is legendary, like a meal all by itself.Czechoslovakia first became a sovereign state in 1918 when it declared independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The state of Czechoslovakia lasted until the "Velvet Divorce" of 1993, which created Slovakia and the Czech Republic.It was occupied by Germany in WWII but escaped major damage, unlike most other European cities. The nation's capital, Prague, retains some of Europe's most beautiful Baroque architecture as well as one of the largest medieval castle complexes still standing. The President of the Czech Republic has his offices in the Prague Castle even today.There was a coup d'etat in 1948 and Czechoslovakia fell under Soviet rule. For fifty years Czechoslovakia was a Socialist state under the USSR, subject to censorship, forced atheism and even the arrest of jazz musicians!In 1989, communist police violently squashed a pro-democracy demonstration and pissed everybody off so bad that a revolution erupted over it, finally ending the Communist rule.The next twenty years saw rapid economic growth and westernization. Today in Prague you can eat at McDonald's or KFC, shop for snowboarding boots and go see a punk rock show.The Czech Republic took over the presidency of the European Union in January 2009. This instantly created lots of political drama because the President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, is a renowned Euroskeptic.We anxiously await the outcome of "President Klaus vs. the Lisbon Treaty", a world heavywieght fight sceduled for spring 2009.Text by Steve Smith.
