Sunraysia District Scout Bike Hike 2011 - June 17 to 19.
This year the Bike Hike will be held in the Lambert Island Reserve and along the banks of the Murray on the Victorian side.
We will be camping on Friday night just off Johns Way, over Outlet Creek, which is just past the Karadoc Winery off the Kulkyne Way. (See map below).
Starts: Friday June 17th, Meet at 6:00pm at the 5th Mildura Scout Hall. Depart the Hall by 6:30pm. (Scouts to arrange car pooling). We will be taking the scout trailer for the transport of bikes and gear.
Finishes: Approximately 3pm Sunday at the John Douglas Scout Centre at Nichols Point. (Exact time will be advised to Parents by text message).
What to Bring: Usual camping gear. Tent (at least 2 scouts per tent - Scouts to organise), sleeping bag, etc. It will be very cold. Your main bag will be carried in a trailer from camp site to camp site. You will only need to carry a small bag with food, water, etc.
Food. You will be self catering, hike style for all meals except Saturday night dinner (possibly a shared camp oven meal). Bring your own food and hike cooking gear. Keep it light weight, if possible.
You will need a small back pack which will hold your snacks, lunch, water, first aid kit.
