Yesterday, the club hosted an outdoor activity at Kincumba Mountain Reserve. The weather was kind and has been notched down as another successful day. There was plenty of banter, as the day also coincided with JOTA, there were a number of stations that had the opportunity to speak with some Scouts interstate. There was even a surprise Fox Hunt!.
The Club would like to thank all those who attended on the day and would like to announce they are planning another outdoor event on Saturday the 21st of November. Please keep your eyes and ears peeled for further details to be released soon.
