Astronomy Night - 1st September 2014

posted 25 Aug 2014, 08:21 by Epping Cubs   [ updated 26 Sept 2014, 21:06 ]
The night's Cub activities will be in normal hall (North Epping) if raining or threatening rain. Otherwise at Albuera Rd, even if cloudy. Ring Baloo if in doubt or call at the hall on the way. Go straight down driveway to meet at back of house.
Wear uniform with suitable warmth for evening & sturdy shoes.
Parents, guardians & parent/guardian accompanied siblings are welcome to join in & see some of the wonders of the sky! However, they must inform a Leader if, for some reason, they and their Cub are withdrawing from an organised activity.
Bring torch (optional).
During the evening, Cubs awaiting their turn to look through the telescope will be doing activities under leader supervision in the nearby Forest Park and will walk via the footpath / footbridge between venues (also under supervision).
After the official close of the evening at 20:30, if the weather is suitable there may be an opportunity for more telescope viewing of objects requiring a darker sky. However, this would ONLY be available for Cubs being supervised by their parent / guardian, for supervision and safety reasons. Remaining Cubs without supervising parents or guardians would NOT be allowed to participate in this extended activity.

Please complete an E1 (used to be an A1) for every person participating in this activity, bring them along on the night and give them to one of the leaders.
