1st Heatherdale Scouts are going to attend the Suburban Adventure Racing (street/parkland orienteering) event on Tuesday 26th February to be held at Fairway Reserve Mount Waverley.
NB: This is on Tuesday - Thursday will just be for those going on the Jamboree Reunion Camp.

Background information on Suburban Adventure Racing:

We will meet at Fairway Reserve Mount Waverley at 6:15pm, to be on course by 6:30pm. The Scouts have up to one hour to get to as many checkpoints as they can - every part-minute they are late back they start to lose serious amounts of points.

Pickup time will be 7:45pm at Mount Waverley.

Adults and siblings can participate if they wish to, rather than drive home while the event is on. Adults who have not done Adventure racing before will need to register ($5 for the season), and then $2 to participate. Carpooling is another option.

Please note the cut off date for indicating attendance is the 22nd February - we must let the organisers know we are attending, and who, so that their system can be pre-loaded with our names and the process of getting on the course is not delayed.

The orienteering is a free event for Scouts and youth.

Sometimes there is a barbecue fundraiser run by the host scout group who sell sausages in bread and soft drink cans for the usual prices.

posted 15 Feb 2014, 04:02 by Andrew Yeaman   [ updated 18 Mar 2019, 03:51 ]

WHEN:  Sunday 24 February, 8am until 3pm 
WHERE: Lilydale Lake, north beach 
WHAT:  Annual raft races & some fun with canoes.
COST: $0

We will meet at the Scout Hall at 8am to load up the trailer with the two rafts. We will then travel to Lilydale Lake to be there by 9am.

Scouts will then need to ensure that their rafts are ship shape and ready to take to the water. Rafts will be judged before racing commences. They will then take to the water and a number of races and other water activities will take place.

Sunscreen, a sun smart hat, sun smart shirt and closed-in footwear MUST be worn throughout the day, including during all water-based activities (Scouts without these on will not be permitted in the water).

There will be a break during proceedings when a BBQ lunch will be served.

Come along and make this a great way to get into the new Scouting year. Family members are welcome to attend and watch you have fun!!!

What to bring/wear:
  • water bottle
  • snacks (to eat throughout the day)
  • sunscreen
  • sun smart hat
  • sun smart shirt
  • towel
  • bag for wet things.
The activity is due to finish at Lilydale Lake at 2:30pm, so we expect to be back at the hall by about 3pm.

We will need some assistance with transport on the day.
