Dear all,

As you may all know, a National Troop Day is being organised, on Saturday 4th May 2024. The national events department together with the programme department formed a sub-committee for this event and we are now opening the expression of interest form.

The team members are Sean Bartolo (Events Commissioner), Francesca Farrugia (Troop Commissioner), Liana Saliba Gazzano (Fgura Scout Group), Marcel Borg (Xghajra Scout Group), Sheridianne Sammut (Mellieha Scout Group), Lara Sultana (Xaghra Scout Group).

Scouting the Summit is the theme for this year, with the slogan #AlpineAdventure, based on the Troop’s mountaineering program. This event will be held at Ghajn Tuffieha Campsite between 8.30 am and 4 pm. The participation fee for Troop members is €15 (+ transport fee according to the group), whilst the fee for leaders is €8. The 1:8 leader-to-member ratio must be adhered to. Every group will be required to bring along some equipment (the full list will be shared soon).

If your Troop section is interested in participating, one leader from the group should fill in the expression of interest form by not later than the 18th of March. The leader submitting the form will be the contact person for the upcoming months, who shall receive the latest updates regarding the event.

At this stage, we are requesting an approximate number of attendees (to order the badges/tokens), however the number should be then finalised by the application stage. The application form will be issued in the coming days and would need to be submitted by not later than 10th of April together with the payment. (More details on these stages will be given later on).

Yours in Scouting,

Sean Bartolo

National Events Commissioner
