K1.5 Hike 24th October 2020.
The K1.5 assault hike is a 14kms hike starting from Saittas and finishing at Troodos
square and will be on Saturday 24th October, a permission to hike letter will be given
out on the 17th Oct. The total height gain over the 14kms is 1,000m. The hike is a
great introduction for new scouts, great practice for older Scouts and Explorers,
preparing them for further hikes to come in the Troodos mountains. This is a
sponsored hike in order to raise funds for the running of the group. It is one of our
major fund raisers and we ask all scouts and Explorers taking part to get as many
sponsors as possible. The sponsor forms can be obtained from the Leaders and
must be brought to the start of the hike to be checked. On completion of the Hike they
will be signed and handed back so that the Scout can collect their money. All money
must be handed in by 7th Nov.
