The first overnight hike was a great success. All the participants did really well. Some small items to be reviewed but overall no major problems. Well done all, next stop Dartmoor!

The next set of hikes involve full weekend kit. If you have kit you are not sure about ie sleeping bags and cookers, please just bring them along on the next hike and we will check it all through over the weekend. We will go through what is needed for each team on the Dartmoor hikes, as some kit can be shared rather than everyone having it.

We do have plenty of sleeping bags to loan out. On Cookers, if you have one already then please bring it along, if not then we have plenty to use on the rest of the hikes and to share among the teams.

If you need to loan a sleeping bag for the next hike or any other issues on kit then please get hold of Richard at equipment@cabottentors.org.uk before the next hike.

One third of Training Complete
Well done to everyone for last Sunday's hike. The mist you experienced will give you some idea as to what can happen on Dartmoor and the importance of keeping close together as a team. We are impressed as never before have we had no dropouts in all 3 day hikes so congratulations. Things get a bit more challenging from now on but we know you can do it -so stick with it even when things get tough. This includes kit -you must have ALL the kit shown on the 2 day hike list AND it must be up to TT standard. If you turn up for a hike and something is missing you will need to return home to get it; and if it is not up to TT standard then we will not be able to take you to Dartmoor as that would break both the Army's and Scout's rules - and as the leaders we wont let that happen. Turning up with muddy boots/gaiters/anything else indicates that you are not taking care of your kit. If you have any kit enquiry (including the need to borrow a larger rucksack; sleeping bag or stove (we don’t supply pots)) then please us the contact us link on the website which will be forwarded to Richard.
The next instalment payment of £60 falls due on Sunday 18 January (which covers the end of January skills weekend and the first Dartmoor hike). Payments can be made by Direct Credit 40-14-24 A/c 51470787 Tag: TT plus scouts name OR can be paid by cheque made payable to Cabot District Scout Council. If you are attending the First Aid training you can bring a cheque along then.

Important - Scout Association Annual Census (Validation on Sunday 4 January)
Each year the number of scouts in the UK is determined and for this year there is a significant change to the process. Each individual scout now has to be registered on the new scout database with each scout group or Explorer unit making the registration. We therefore need to ensure that everyone of you is accounted for so on this Sunday as you come in, you will be asked to confirm which scout group or Explorer unit you now currently attend as this may be different to the group/unit you gave to us at the start of training. We will then email each scout group/unit to verify that they have registered your name.

If you are a Guide or a TT participant who is not registered with a group/unit or you have left your group/unit then please download the new Membership Form from here: http://www.cabottentors.org.uk/Young-Person-Information-Form-editable.pdf and bring this along with you on Sunday.

If you are not attending on Sunday please email Kim with the information.

Many thanks.
