Orienteering NSW will be running the activities for us, so all cubs need to arrive by 9.30 to register.

They require the cubs to be in groups of 10 with at least one leader with each group – leaders will need to submit names in groups of 10 or part thereof.

Each group or part-group must have either a leader or registered adult helper named to help with the activities.

They require each cub’s name to set up their scoring system on their computer system and issue their specialised scoring card or stick.

So the application form will be in a form which can easily upload the names – that is the only identifying information they require.

As per Orienteering NSW practice, the cubs will not be using compasses but will have an exciting array of activities leading up to running some courses on the day.

 

See this skeleton E1 Cub Day Out 2017- add your pack’s details to it before distributing.
