Extra Information for Scouts
 Information about Y4s
    Parents AND Scouts please take note of 2 dates on the Y4 which I believe are being overlooked and making our job a little harder.
    1.  Firstly, there is a date (on Pg1) when all money needs to be paid by. This is required because often Organisations require payment before we attend their activity. Such as Bowling wants to be paid 7days before we go. Late payment or on the night will not work. To be able to purchase food for the scouts for camps we need payment in on time so we can then do the shopping.
    2. On page 2 there is a section that says ‘Parents’ consent to be returned to the section Leader by…’. This date is important for us so we know who will be attending the activity. Sometimes the return date is the night we go but other times we need to know beforehand, who will be attending. This is so we can organise transport, let Organisations know how many scouts we have attending, so we know numbers for a camp booking and to shop for and also so we know who we are waiting for when we are out about to do something fun such as a night hike. Please be mindful of this date.
We are asking also for Parent Contacts and Emergency contacts (page 2) to be different. We will always contact the Parents first if there is a problem but if we cannot get hold of the parents who will be the next person we can ring? We can NOT have the same person as Parent contact and Emergency contact, please.
 Tie Dye Night. 28/11/2017 Cost $5
  • Scouts will need to bring a white cotton shirt or t-shirt or pillowcase to tie dye. The item needs to be washed before it can be tie dyed.
  • They DO NOT have to be new. An existing white t-shirt is fine, even with a logo on it will be ok. An older white pillowcase works as well.
  • Scouts will bring their tie dyed item home in a plastic bag. Allow it to sit in plastic bag in the dark for 24hours. It then needs to be put in the sun to dry. The dyes are UV and heat activated so hotter the sun the brighter the colours.
  • Initally lay in the sun with the elastics still on to dry. Turn reguarly to ensure both sides are exposed evenly. Take elastics off and continue to dry flat in the sun. 
  • When item is dry, hot iron or hot tumble dry for a few minutes to make sure totally colourfast.
  • Do not wash for at least 48 hours.
  • Always wash and dry inside out.
  • If no sun after we have tie dyed, leave item wrapped in plastic in the dark until the sun comes out again.
