Hi all,

A massive welcome to our new Scouts who joined us at last week’s meeting. You all settled in really well and we hope you enjoyed it. At the meeting we discussed our upcoming weekend away. We will be hostelling in Lough Dan Scout Centre, Wicklow – http://www.loughdan.com/
The cost of the weekend is €25. We will be leaving on Friday evening and returning on Sunday afternoon.

As the Scouting Motto goes – Bí Ullamh (Be prepared), so in preparation we talked about what gear we need for the weekend at last week’s meeting. Below is a reminder of the gear needed.
