Cub Day Out – 22 March **POSTPONED

- – - – -

CUB DAY OUT 2020

Completing the trifecta of cancelled Cub Events this year, Cub Day Out has been POSTPONED til later in the year.

Everyone will be aware of the current evolving situation regarding COVID-19.

  • I have had a good number of messages of concern in the last couple of days in relation to the current situation in the community regarding Covid 19.
  • This feels to be the appropriate decision for our cubs, leaders and parents.

 

Our gathering would be of around 300 people, and we would be mostly walking around the city in smaller groups and coming together at the beginning and end.

So we are not subject to the current guideline of cancelling a large event.

But people have expressed their concern around acting with caution, and advice from government sources is changing almost daily as the situation evolves.

It has been decided to postpone until later in the year, and to make this decision today rather than possibly a few days out from the event.

Hopefully this will help the many parents who were starting to ponder whether or not to allow their cub to attend.

 

Scouts NSW is providing us with regular updates on what Covid 19 means for scouts.

They have a place on their website that is regularly updated from Department of Health information -

https://www.nsw.scouts.com.au/members-services/health-and-safety/scouting-guide-to-coronavirus/

 

All payments will be refunded to the scout groups, and the badges ordered will be used later in the year when the date is re-scheduled.

Thanks for your understanding, this has been a very odd year for cub scouts so far.
