Publishing of photos during Cuboree.
As we have members who can not have their images published, Communications will have a list of names of those that can not have photos posted.
We are trying to ensure that communication is constant and accurate during the event. It will be Communications role to field any questions from parents, via Camp Chief, and to allow you all to enjoy the time at activities with your Cub Scouts. You have all done a lot of prep work for this event and it is your time to enjoy the great activities being provided also.
Tick Tock - 28 days left on the clock!
With so many parents sending their Cub Scouts on a long journey, we will be looking at keeping them up to date and involved in the Cuboree journey. I am sure all parents will be keen to see how you all keep them entertained on the long tours.
As the majority of people will have camera phones with 3G connections, Communications is asking if all photos could be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with a tag and location. This can then be placed on this page and our website for all to see.
We can't wait to see the great images coming in across the 14 hours some are travelling.
Please note that carabiners have been purchased to hook the Cuboree cup onto bags or trousers - these will be distributed on Sunday by the Sub Camp Leaders.
Leaders, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and all adults will be provided with a lanyard and ID whilst Cub Scouts will have a wrist ID in colour of Sub Camp...these will be provided on arrival.
A coloured luggage tag will be mailed out this week with a letter containing pick up and drop off times and addresses to each Cuboree Participant...
Please make sure all gear is labelled clearly!!!

Thanks to all those that took part in selecting the name. Can't wait to see the first edition on Sunday morning.
We have had a request from an adventerous Cub Scout attending asking if we can try and get the Channel 7 Sunrise morning show to do a piece at Cuboree. Actually they have requested we attempt to lure Grant Denyar to site and have him participate in some of the activities.
In order to fulfiling this request I am looking for Cub Scouts who are willing to write an email to email@example.com asking that we get Sunrise to come on site. It would also be good to try for Channel 9 Today as well.
To ensure we have enough time if we could get some of these requests as soon as possible I can then send a formal request to the TV stations.

For those that can’t make it & need to exchange, either give it to someone attending or contact Richard Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for posting.
Please ensure you advise prior to 30th May as this will be the last posting day to be able to receive before Cuboree.

At the Cuboree Leaders weekend one potential name was Cuboread and another was Cuboree Howl.
If you believe you can come up with a better name please respond and the best will get pick and used from Cuboree to next Cuboree.
