To Jamboree 2018 Participants attending Victoria Contingent Camp on Friday 25-27th May 2018 in Seymour……….
There is a few jamboree participants attending the camp from our unit. Carpooling is going to be our best option as Seymour camp is approximately 160kms one way. I have had a few parents indicate they can car pool a few guides Friday night & a few parents who are available Sunday for car pooling.
I have to pick up Jess early on Sunday due to another girl guide commitment in Moorabbin from 1pm-7pm. I can bring home a few guides if they are willing to leave at 10:30am Sunday (if so, you need to advise the contingent leader in advance).
Please comment here if you can assist with car pooling either Friday or Sunday.
Gumnuts & Juniors, bring a friend along to gumnuts & junior guides on Tuesday night. We would love to share the girl guides with a friend.
Special Note to Juniors: – please bring along one friend only. As you can appreciate if I have 10-15 new little ones it can get a little hectic quickly……..
