1st March 2014, 8:00 - 18:00
High level walk location: Ben Vrackie (Loch Lomond)
Low level walk location: West Highland Way, Drymen to Balmaha
All walks are usually a full day activity running from 8am - 6pm and leave from Glasgow.
They are subject to change depending on weather, numbers and leader availability.
Leaders need to contact Jim Elliott to notify him of numbers the week before the walk. All participants also need to complete registration forms which are available from Jim. This is so that they can ensure they've got enough qualified leaders. There will be some flexibility after this but if you've haven't told them the week before that you're coming then they can't guarantee you'll get a place(s).
Scout Leaders (whether attending the walk or not) need to ensure that their scouts are properly prepared as follows.
Please remember that you need to ensure that you have the relevant medical and permission forms for each young person and these need to be brought on the hill (so best to be in a waterproof covering). Anyone without the relevant forms will not be able to attend. We ask that you provide Jim with a copy of these forms in advance of the walk.
Please also ensure that your Scouts/Explorers have the correct equipment and know that they've got it (there have been a few people whose parents packed their bags for them so were unaware of the kit they had until it was too late!) If you or your young people need to borrow kit or need advice on what to take please get in touch.
Please make sure everyone has plenty of lunch, munchies and water (approx. 2litres is necessary per person - a wee 330ml juice isn't enough!).
If anyone has any questions about this please get in touch.
