Patrol Activity Camp :: CANCELLED / POSTPONED

Steve and I have decided to postpone this weekend's Patrol Activity Camp, primarily because of the wet weather and several Scouts are unwell (or on the verge of getting sick).

This will allow those in Gang Show to attend this weekend's additional rehearsal.

We will soon set a date for a Troop Council & Parent's Meeting to plan Term 3.

We apologise for the late notice but we think it's in the best interests of all concerned.

Wear warm clothes as it will be cold and good footwear.

There will be a prize up for grabs, but you will need to defeat patrols from Dareton and Red Cliffs to claim it.

Grampians Hike - Nearly Ready To Go?

We are meeting at 7:30pm on Twelfth Street at the site of the old 2nd Mildura Scout Hall (now vacant land) between No.1 & No.2 Ovals (between San Mateo & Etiwanda Ave).

We expect to be departing at 8:00pm.

Last chance to check you have enough food, 2-3 litres of water bottle capacity, warm clothing, rain coat, plastic bags to keep things dry, etc, etc. Maybe some pocket money for lunch in Halls Gap on Monday, if you're not making it yourself.

Have a good meal at before you leave home tonight as we will not be doing dinner.

Watch this space. I will be posting random photos of the trip on this blog!
