Sirius Cup: 9th - 10th March 2013

The 63rd Sirius Cup is on at Balmoral Beach.  The Scouts will be arriving to stake out our site on Balmain Park on Friday evening.  By Saturday morning, the Cubs arrive swelling the numbers to many hundreds.  After registering with your section leaders and obtaining your coloured wrist band, you will be able to enter some of the canoeing events.  For the qualified sailors, there will be an opportunity to reclaim the treasured Sirius Cup which was won by Jack and Chris a few years ago.  There will be time for swimming and playing on beautiful Balmoral Beach.  In the evening, there are usually a couple of movies being shown on the big screen (sheet) for us to watch before sleeping overnight in tents.

Sunday morning starts bright and early with the Iron Man events for all age groups.  There will be more time for swimming while the Scouts go on their annual canoe trek to Chinamans Beach then under the Spit Bridge, a round trip of about 5km.  Pack the boats and canoes back on the trailers, pack up the tents and camp site and head back to the hall to unload everything and pack it away.

Assistance is required from parents to help with setting up and packing away.  While you are at Balmoral, why not stay for a while to enjoy the excitement and the wonderful atmosphere of camping at one of Australia's most exclusive camping spots with million dollar views.  You can also chat with other parents and leaders while helping with preparing the meals and snacks.

Attached is a copy of the permission note that needs to be completed by all people attending the event.
