Tuck shop opening tomorrow night


In order to help with fundraising for the Kenya project there will be a tuck shop open at the end of Explorers tomorrow night. If it goes well it will be run most weeks for the foreseeable. If you want to buy anything please bring some cash.

See you tomorrow

Camp forms and kit list

After I compared the air rifle forms side-by-side it seems there is no difference so I do not need new copies after all. I am still missing some forms however so if you have not given me all of your forms please bring them with you on Friday.

Kit List

I am sure you all know what you need to bring but here it is anyway:

All the usual stuff (sleeping bag, bed etc.)
A chair (very important)
Wet weather clothing
Walking boots (or something else to keep your feet dry when trudging around the campsite)
Money (for chip shop on Friday and the tuck shop on-site)
Any kit you took home with you on Tuesday
Whittling project (in case we get an opportunity to continue what we started on Tuesday)
A chair (yes, I know I have already said it but it is very important)

If you do not know where Beaudesert is below is a map plus an address. We are staying on site 8 which (for those in the know) is just over the road from where you end the Chase walk, it looks like the site will be fairly quiet so you should see us.

Site address: Beaudesert Park Campsite, Cannock Wood, Rugeley, Staffordshire, WS15 4JJ
Web address: http://www.beaudesert.org

See you Friday.

REMINDERS for October 8


Some reminders for all of you:

Reminder #1: Please bring a white t-shirt with you tomorrow that you do not mind ruining, everyone will need to bring their own as we will not have spares.

Reminder #2: Please bring your money for camp with you, it is not too late to put your name down for camp (details are here), it would be great to get a good number of you on camp.

Reminder #3: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE download, print out and fill in a membership and consent form, this is very important, if we do not have new copies of your forms by the end of this month we will have to turn you away on a Tuesday night, you can download the forms from here.

Reminder #4: If you are yet to be invested please make sure you buy an Explorer shirt as soon as possible, I want to invest a job lot of you not in drips and drabs, if you need a shirt get one ASAP, if you cannot get into Hanley to buy one I noticed Amazon have started to sell them too.

Reminder #5: If you are already invested as an Explorer, please wear your full uniform on a Tuesday night, if you are from Monkeys (or any other unit) you can wear your previous neckers and I will invest you into our unit and present you with a Scorpion necker but I cannot do this if you are not in uniform.
