[URGENT] Assistance required for VA Expedition this weekend

UPDATE: Aaron (2nd Eltham) is still looking for three Venturers – the hike was postponed due to the lack of number and has been rescheduled for next weekend (7th and 8th).

Are you able to go hiking and help him out?

Hi All

I will be running a hike on 28th of February and 1st of March. This hike is being held at the Cathedral Rangers which is a 2 hour drive from 2d Eltham sea Scouts and it is located just past Marysville.The hike will be very steep and challenging in nature.

Food:Please cater for yourself. I suggest taking dehydrated food If venturer/parents is unsure of what food to pack I can provide menu’s that can give you a guideline on what to bring.

Cost: $10 each this covers cost of camping and petrol.

Transport: My dad will be able to transport a few venturers up, but I am in need of another lot of parent to transport some of the venturers up as we will be meeting at 2nd Eltham sea scouts hall (14 handfield street Eltham)
