Ski Race Fundraiser

Mildura Ski Club have given us the opportunity to make some cash! We have been offered the job of gate keeping and car parking. They will pay $1000 for our services. But it is Saturday & Sunday mornings. I need to know tonight, don't feel bad about saying no either. This is an adult job, but having the Scouts there would also be awesome exposure for Scouting! Let me know please.
Steven Scout Leader

UPDATE: We have decided not to do this fundraiser.

Raft Regatta - Reminder

Don't forget your life jacket (if you have one), wide brimmed hat,
fully enclosed shoes (old sand shoes which won't come off) not 'Crocs' or sandals, water bottle and a portable lunch for Saturday.

Looking at the weather forecast, it shouldn't be a total fire ban, so cooking should be allowed, but remember to have a backup plan!

It looks like we might get some rain over the weekend and the nights
may be cold. Make sure your tent is waterproof, you have a spray
jacket, and something warm to wear in the evenings.

See you at the hall before 6pm on Friday. We are hoping to be leaving the hall at 6pm. We will then be heading out to Bunnings carpark where we will meet up with Steve and his big trailer. We will then head out to Buxton's Bend together.

Monster Raffle - Please Return

We hope you are all selling tickets! We need the books and money back by next week. Even if you have not sold the entire book, you need to return them.

Remember, NEXT WEEK!

Raft Regatta - Self Catering & Cooking

Now is the time to start planning your meals for the camp next weekend.

Remember you must have a pre-made, non-cooking, cut lunch for Saturday.

If there is a declaration of total fire ban next weekend, there will be no cooking permitted on camp. Check the CFA website for total fire ban advice for the North Western District.

If not a total fire ban, there will be fire restrictions in place. Check the CFA website for fire restriction information for the North Western District.

Click here to find out what is and what is not allowable on days of fire restriction and days of total fire ban.
