Scouts Tonight - 21 March 2018 - Deakin Avenue Memorial Walk

Change of plan because the lock master we know is away for 4 weeks. We are meeting at the hall at 7pm, then walking down Deakin Avenue looking at all the war memorials and doing a quiz. Pick up is at 9pm at the Great Australian Ice Creamery. Some will buy an ice cream at the end.

This is to be treated as a mid-weight camp. There will be a BBQ this year for anyone who wants to use it. I will also have an esky for storage of perishable items for everyone. There will not be a kitchen tent or hot water. Scouts will be required to organise, pack, and setup their camp. They will also have to cook / arrange their meals. Leaders / Parents will be there to help and supervise.
