Waratah Update

Written by Aaron Wardle.

Well, Waratah 2009: Castaways from Gilligan’s Island is just 4 days away and everything is set for a great weekend up at Glenrock.


A couple of housekeeping matters:


  • Acceptance letters were sent out over the weekend to all Venturer Team Leaders and Staff. If you did not receive yours, please let me know. Also if your team characters are not correct (or you just wanna check) come and see me during supper.


  • Gates open at 7:30pm and campsites will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. If you are planning on arriving at Waratah before 7:30pm please let me know.


  • Waratah will finish at 2:30pm on Sunday, however there is an expectation that all Venturers, Leaders, Helpers, etc will remain behind to help us finish the site packup. We will be aiming to be finished this by 3:00pm and will be away from Glenrock by 3:30pm at the latest.


  • Just a reminder that Venturer Teams are required to provide their own food and drink for all meals EXCEPT for Saturday Night Dinner. Leaders and Helpers will be fed out of Catering from Saturday Breakfast until Sunday Lunch.


At last count, we have 130 Venturers and 50 Staff Members attending this year with representation from EVERY Greater Western Sydney Venturer Unit and 3 of the Local Rover Crews in attendance. We also have a Hunter & Coastal Region Unit joining in on the fun.


I think that’s about it, if you have any questions – please feel free to ask, otherwise I will see you all on Friday Night up at Glenrock.
