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.
