Holiday Best Wishes & Starting Date for 2012

On behalf of the 2nd Mildura scout leaders, Roy, Julie and myself, David, I would like to thank all the parents, grandparents and others who have helped us out in 2012. We would also particularly like to thank all the scouts for their willingness to participate and really have a go at the various activities that have occurred over the year.
We hope that everyone has an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas and New Year and we look forward to seeing everyone back in 2012 on Monday 6 February.

Patrol Activity Hike During the Holidays

Several of the 2nd Mildura Scouts need to organise and participate in a hike in order to complete achievement badge milestones.
Consequently, we will be holding a patrol activity hike during the school holidays after New Year. This will be an overnight, carry-everything hike setting out after lunch on the first day and finishing before lunch on the second day. At this time, we are considering holding the hike at Hattah-Kulkyne National Park.
Can all scouts (or their parents or guardians) who are interested in taking part on this hike please contact me, David Cleary, on 0430 137 166 so that we can choose a date for the hike and ensure that everyone who needs to be is properly involved in the planning.

End of Year Breakup: Group Barbecue

2nd Mildura’s scouts will be joining with the joeys, cubs, venturers and rovers for a group barbecue for our end of year breakup.
Please note that the breakup is on Tuesday 13 December at the Nichols Point Scout Centre from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
A barbecue will be provided. Please bring along a salad or dessert to share.
Please note that there will be NO SCOUT MEETING on Monday 12 December.

Saturday, 26 November 2011


Due to excessive numbers of prickles and thistles at Apex Park, we have had to change the location of the navigation activity for Monday, 28 November, to the old billabong pump house at the intersection of Cureton Avenue and the northern end of Cooke Street, Nichols Point.

All other details of the activity remain unchanged. Scouts need to be dropped off and picked up from this location at 7:00pm and 9:00pm, respectively. If you have a compass, please bring it. Please wear closed shoes and long trousers as we will be walking through the bush.
