Fire Assessment for Competent Performers

The third session being offered is for competent circus performers only.  We have an ACAPTA (Australian Circus and Physical Theatre Association) PASS (Performance Assessment for Street Safety) Assessor, Hemlock Mejarne, from Solid State Circus attending the weekend to assess interested members for a Scout Fire Performer qualification.  This is a safety based training session and only performers who can demonstrate prop competency (unlit) will be permitted to attend this assessment. Fee is $25 for the assessment payable on the day.  Essential that log books and required paperwork are completed prior to presentation for assessment. Document links are on the E1.  Only Venturers with written parental permission will be permitted to present for assessment. Rovers/Leaders must also present log books and completed application for assessment prior to presentation for assessment.  This will be held from 12:00 to 4:00 on Saturday 9th April.
