As the District Bike Hike is only ONE WEEK away, we need to get Health Forms returned so we know the number of Scouts attending.
Friday 14th June at 6pm (5th Hall) or 6:30pm (Wentworth Scout Hall) to Sunday 16th June at 2pm (Perry Sand Hills).
Meet at the Hall at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm departure to the Wentworth Scout Hall. (Meet us there if that is more convenient).
We will be camping in and around the hall on Friday night, then beginning our 'hike' Saturday morning.
We will ride all day Saturday and camp that night at Six Mile Creek.
We will ride to the Perry Sand Hills on the Sunday and finish around 2-3pm. Parents to pick up their Scout from the Perry Sand Hills Carpark.
Scouts need to provide their own bike (in good working condition), puncture repair kit, pump, helmet, drink bottle. Scouts will be self-catering so need to plan their menu and bring all required food. Water will be available to fill up drink bottles. Cooking equipment and tents can be shared with friends.Bring warm sleeping gear as it will be VERY cold. Bring an extra blanket!
Scouts are not expected to carry all of their own gear, just a day back-pack with their lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, spray jacket.
Scouts will not be permitted to ride if they don't have their own helmet and enclosed shoes.

I RECOMMEND YOU FILL YOUR BIKE TUBES WITH SLIME.
$15-$18 protects 2 tubes. Good investment.
