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.
