Cuboree Ideas Meeting

Preparation for Cuboree 2020 is well under way – it is only 15-16 months away!

 

I need to prepare the program for the activity base – theme “OCEANS”.

And I need help with getting some great ideas together.

 

I am not asking anyone to attend Cuboree, this meeting is purely about getting some great activity ideas in motion, so I can progress with the planning.

 

When – Saturday 1st September – 3pm to 5pm

Where – 3rd Mortdale Scout Hall – Glen Road, Oatley

Who – anyone who would like to contribute to ideas for Cuboree activity base – scouts, venturers, rovers, leaders, parents …….

What – Floating ideas to create an amazing activity base for the Cuboree – afternoon tea provided.

 

Budget – we have a massive budget this time around, so can look at a whole range of activities.

 

If you would like to come, please respond on my new “Cuboree” email address – jan.mulheron@cuboree.nsw.scouts.com.au

If you have any questions, send an email and I will get back to you.

Although I am away from now until Wednesday  29th August, so I will be late responding to you.

 

If you are not coming to the meeting, but have some ideas, please email me, or let me know next time you see me, I am happy to hear all ideas and see where they lead.

 

Thanks for your help, please distribute this information to everyone you know and let’s get some huge ideas happening for the cubs.
