Syd’s Wild Dayz 2012

Well it’s hard to believe that Escape was 3 years ago but in around 48 hours time the UK Contingent will be setting off for Australia again for some time in Sydney & Melbourne before all arriving in Tasmania on 3 January for the start of the 15th Australian Venture – Wild Dayz.

Internet connections permitting Syd will try to bring you daily updates from the Venture.

No doubt the site will look a little busier when we arrive…

The final day in Oz started with investitures for Charlotte, James, Jasmine and Jess at the Roundhouse followed by shopping and lunch in Freo.

In the afternoon many of the unit did the Fremantle Prison tour – visiting cells and the gallows amongst other places of the prison that closed in 1991.

Then off to the airport for the flight home via Dubai where the unit will say goodbye to Alverton, who fly onto Manchester.

We’ve arrived in Australia and taken shuttle bus up to the site at Heathcote arriving there around 11am.

A leisurely afternoon followed with a quick walk round the town and the camp site before a large storm started around 5pm.

Everyone very tired and most headed straight off to bed after dinner.

Well just a few days to go now until we set off for Oz – all of the clothing has arrived and Lloyd has this for distribution. A quick reminder – travel to Sydney from Gatwick is in Explorer / Leader activity polo shirt, UK scarf and UK fleece. You should also make sure that you have your Explorer uniform shirt with you as this must be worn to arrive at Escape (the UK badge should be sewn above the pocket) and your UK contingent shirt and navy Escape trousers which will be required during Escape. Have a great Christmas and see you at the hall at 3.45.
