Tomorrow’s Activities

There are two programs going on tomorrow, as follows:

  • D of E participants are at Bickenhill as normal, 7pm start.
  • Smalls are at Olton Mere from 7pm. Please make sure to bring / be in a set of clothes that can get wet with some old shoes. You will need to be able to change out of them and into a dry set at the end. It will be a good idea to have a thin waterproof to wear – it won’t keep you dry but will keep the wind off you and stop you from getting cold. For those that don’t know, Olton Mere is on the Warwick Road in Olton, opposite the BP filling station – post code: B92 7AN. Finish time will be 9pm as usual.

Let us know of any questions, see you tomorrow.

If you are of D of E age (year 9 and above), are taking part in the program this year and you haven’t yet completed a registration form for either Bronze or  Silver awards you need to do so.

The registration form is attached to this article. Please fill it out and return it to the next meeting back with the relevant cheque for the registration fee.

If you registered for Bronze last year and are continuing to start the Silver award with the Silver expedition this year you need to fill out and return a form with a cheque.

We will send all forms off together as soon as we have them all together so please return as soon as possible to avoid delaying another participant starting their program – programs can only be started once registered on the D of E system so please don’t start before then. A deadline of March 24th must be met to register, please do so as quickly before that date to help us out.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
