ScoutHike 2020 - Cancelled
The recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has been causing concern throughout the community and has led to the recent closure of schools and public events, and thus the ScoutHike management team has made the decision to Cancel ScoutHike 2020.
The ScoutHike 2020 and Scouts NSW teams have been monitoring information provided by government authorities including the Federal and State Departments of Health to monitor the situation and plan for any health, safety and welfare risks, and make appropriate decisions.
Scouts NSW takes the health and safety of our members at Scouting events very seriously. On 12 March 2020 the Scouts NSW Coronavirus team relayed to the ScoutHike 2020 organisers the risks and possible adverse outcomes associated with holding a large event. Taking into consideration the information received from the Scouts NSW, the ScoutHike 2020 management team has decided to cancel ScoutHike for this year.
This decision was taken due to several factors, the most important being:
I want to assure you that while the decision was not an easy one, based on the information and the unprecedented conditions surrounding the virus outbreak, it is the correct one.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The ScoutHike 2020 team will endeavour to provide answers to your questions as quickly as possible, but we do ask for your patience.
Updates and further information can be found at www.scouthike.com.
At the heart of all that we do in Scouting is the safety and wellbeing of our members, so I want to thank you for your understanding.
We hope to see you in the forest next year!
Yours in Scouting
