Ready Steady Cook – Meeting at 6pm Thursday 18th October

Hi all,

A reminder that we will be meeting up at 6pm next Thursday to finish building our fires and start cooking delicious meals!

Can all Scouts remember to bring their torches and rain gear as we will be cooking outside?
A reminder for PLs – remember to organise your food shopping. You will also need to get wood, firelighters (maybe just one PL needs to buy one box of firelighters for everyone – get in contact with each other and sort it out!) and matches.

Each patrol will be graded on :

– Tastiness of Food
– Food hygiene
