Important Notices

The weather is unfortunately looking bad this weekend. Therefore could EVERYONE please ensure……

• Wrap all kit inside your main bag in plastic bags. Maybe even line you main bag as well.
• Have enough pairs of thick socks (walking socks if possible) to keep changing if necessary
• Re-wax / Waterproof your Boots
• Take enough nibbles to keep you going / lift spirits every now and then!
• On your prep nights, Adults and PL’s of Patrols have hopefully thought about shelter options and maybe taking a small stove. Even a very small hot drink this year could now make all the difference.
• Find that brave courage and determination within yourself and take it with you. Keep team morale high and keep checking on each other throughout the event. That is key.
If we deem any person to not have the right kit this with them this weekend, we reserve the right for their own safety, to stop them from starting the event.
