For the last activity of the season, Manannán will be hostelling in Glendalough over the weekend of 8-10 November, travelling down on the Friday evening and returning on the Sunday morning. Watch Leaders will arrange lifts for their Watches.
Please note that our last meeting of the season will then be on Friday 15 November.
We will be meeting in the Den at 1930hrs on Friday, with lifts leaving by 2000hrs at the latest once gear has been checked. Scouts should have dinner before they meet in the Den.
Collection from Glendalough on Sunday will be at 1100hrs, with lifts arriving back at the Den at around 1200hrs. Lifts will be arranged by each Watch.

We have decided to use the remaining contingency budget from Summer Camp 2019 to subsidise €10 of the cost of this trip.

Scouts should contact their Watch Leader with any questions.
