District Events (Cubs)

Thinking about the months ahead?

July 2017

2nd As the District will be taking part in the County Fun day we have dropped the district one and encourage cub packs to enter a team in the county Dragon Boat competition.  This year’s Regatta will be on Sunday the 2nd of July at Wokingham Waterside Centre.   As in the past, this will be a fun event open to teams of Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and SN members.  Moreover, it will enable Cubs & Scouts to obtain one of the new activity badges without doing anything else.

No previous experience or equipment is required as the Waterside Centre will provide the boats, paddles, buoyancy aids etc. as well as qualified helms who will tell your team what to do.  The maximum in a team is 11 (10 paddlers and 1 drummer) but don’t worry if you are one or two short as in practice that rarely makes any difference.

The cub competition will be held in the morning.
The entry fee is £ 75 per team and will give your team at least 2 races.
