Information on return trip status and bus delays
On Sunday 3rd May while the buses are travelling back from ScoutHike, we will endeavour to post a bus arrival status board here, detailing the expected arrival time for each bus and notice of any delays etc.

The planned arrival time is between 4.30pm and 5.00pm.

Before leaving home to pick up family members from the bus point at the end of ScoutHike, please check this website to view the latest information on expected delays and an expected arrival time for the bus your child is travelling on.

Please understand that we are relying on technology to post bus status information here. If the Telstra NextG network is not functioning as it should, we will be unable to post any bus status information here, in which case please assume the buses will be arriving as scheduled.

Very Important Notice

Matches, lighters, or anything else capable of creating a flame/fire are TOTALLY PROHIBITED from being in the possession of Scouts at ScoutHike.

There is absolutely NO need for these types of items to be in the possession of Scouts at ScoutHike.

If any Scout is found to have these items, their entire Patrol will be disqualified and removed from ScoutHike.

Important Notes
Penalty for late payment
If payment for your entire patrol is not received by mid-night, 10th April, your patrol will lose any early bird points bonus and your patrol will have an additional 100 points penalty deducted.

More than one PL?
Patrols with more than one PL are most welcome to compete and will be classified as 'non-competitive'. Your Patrol will receive a Bronze Trophy and each Scout will receive a ScoutHike Badge.


Patrols with Scouts who have had their 15th Birthday?
Patrols with Scouts who have had their 15th birthday are classified as 'non-competitive'. Your Patrol will receive a Bronze Trophy and each Scout will receive a ScoutHike Badge.

Patrol Size
Recommended patrol size: 5 to 6 Scouts.

Patrol sizes of 5 to 6 are historically a better size for ScoutHike Patrols. If your Patrol number drops below four your Patrol will be joined to another Patrol with four or five Scouts.

If a Patrol has four Scouts registered, there is a reasonable chance that you may have other Scouts joined to your Patrol where their Patrol number drops below four. There is less chance of this affecting your Patrol if you register five Scouts in your Patrol.

Prior to registering for ScoutHike you need to talk to the Leader running the Activity Point you wish to help on to ensure that they know you are coming along to help and they have a need for your services.
