1st Neck Point Scouting Group, Nanaimo



Bonanza of events for the weekend!

Saturday 9th June

Newcastle Island Canoe Trip – The Cub Scouts are having their year-end “Pirate” camp and the Scouts are to be the marauding pirates who will paddle in and steal their treasure. This will be an enormous amount of fun and water guns ARE compulsory!!

I am anticipating a 10:00 AM departure from Brechin boat ramp.

 Sunday 10th June

Nanaimo Scout Hut Bottle Drive – This is an area fund-raiser to assist in providing a new roof for this heritage registered building. We will be running a bottle drive from 9:30 AM until 2:30 PM and we will need assistance with trucks from those parents who are able to assist. The collections are to be dropped off at Berks Intertrucks where there will be a sorting depot set up. We will be working our regular areas and a start-off point will be announced nearer the time. I would appreciate a full commitment from the youth for this event.


Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th June

Canoe Raffle Ticket Sales – This is the very last weekend to sell tickets prior to the draw on Thursday 14th June. We will be manning points at Country Club Save-On-Foods on Saturday and at Woodgrove Mall on the Sunday.  The times we need to supply youth are as follows:


Saturday        Save On Foods          5:00 to 7:00 PM

Sunday          Woodgrove              11:30 to 1:30

Sunday          Woodgrove              1:30 to 3:30

Sunday          Woodgrove              3:30 to 5:30


On the Sunday we will rotate the youth through the raffle ticket station to give them a break from collecting bottles and cans so everyone will need to be a little flexible on this. If there is anyone who would like to volunteer for the Saturday evening or the last Sunday afternoon slot that would be very much appreciated.


Please respond with your availability for these events and let me know if you can supply a truck for the Sunday.
