We have two events for the Scouts on Saturday 7th December – a hike and a sleepover. Can you please inform the Scouters by Thursday 5th December if your son is attending.
We will be hiking up Moylussa (531m), the highest point in Clare. We’ll be meeting at the Scout Hall at 9 am. We expect to return to the hall around 2 pm (update to be sent via WhatsApp group). At this time of the year, there is a possibility that the summit of Moylussa will be covered in snow.
As part of their badgework, Scouts should do the following before the hike:
- Scouts should pack their own bags (see below) and know what goes in the bag (and why)
- Scouts should be able to get a weather forecast for the day of the hike
Due to the time of the year, warm clothes, raingear and headtorch are essential as well as the usuals. Please ensure all Scouts have the correct gear as it is important for their safety, wellbeing and enjoyment on the hike.
- Scout Neckerchief
- Day bag
- Hiking boots
- Hat & Gloves
- Warm Clothes (layers)
- Water (2ltr min)
- Packed Lunch
- Bivy Bag
- Change of Clothes/Shoes (to be left in the leaders’ cars)
Our second event is a Christmas Sleepover in the Scout Hall. This event is being organised by our Patrol Leader’s Council. There is a €7 charge for food.
This will start from 8.30 pm (Please note there is a Heineken Cup match on in Thomond Park at 5.30 pm so there may be a considerable amount of traffic in the area). We’ll be finishing at 10.00 am on Sunday.
Scouts should bring a sleeping bag and ground mat.
Mobile phones/electronic devices are not permitted.
