Cobras patrol night 06.06.17

Cobras is to plan activity for this night. It needs to be an activity that is scout based – not just a games night. You have been warned.

Please let Lucy know rough plan and anything that you need.



If you do not have a plan as a patrol on arrival then Leaders will run a night that will not be your first choice of fun.

Half-term-special Zombie Night

We need a turn out of at least 15 scouts to make this night a success. Therefore I am asking that yourselves or your parents text me to confirm you will be there by 6pm on Tuesday 30th.

If I do not have at least 15 confirmation texts by 6pm on Tuesday Scouts will be cancelled!!! – The Programme will continue as planned the following week with Cobras patrol night.
