This Skills Day is open to ALL SCOUTS to attend where they will take part in all the Bases from the PL/APL Skills weekend. The Bases will be run by the Youth members who take part in the Skills weekend in Carne, with Scouters there as back-up.

The idea of the Skills Day is to assist PLs/APLs in passing on their skills to their Patrols and to make sure that ideas are passed along to all Scouts in our groups.

The Event will Start at 10.00am (Could all Base leaders please meet at 9.30am to get set up. Base leaders were decided in Carne see list below) and

Finish 4.00pm.

Everyone should bring a packed lunch, warm clothes, rain gear as you will be outside for most of the day.

Bases will include backwoods, buddy burners, emergencies, navigation, pioneering, ropework.

Hope to see you all there!
