County Overnight Hike
This years county hike will take place on Saturday 2nd November in the Cooley Mountains. Scouts will do a short hike then pitch their tents then do a longer hike with bases along the way. We will finish on Sunday morning. More info will be given out on Tuesday. We have gone through the gear needed over the last two meetings. A gear list is here. If parents need gear we recommend going to the Banbridge Outlet as there are 3/4 outdoor shops and it is much cheaper than going to Portwest. Penneys have some fleeces in for €6 that are ideal for hiking. if you have any other questions please contact us.
