Welcome heroes, villains and others from across the Multiverse!
Rovers, Leaders and Adult Volunteers – we need your help to continue to build the new Hoadley Hide into an event the Venturers will love.
There are a few notable changes for Rovers, Leaders and Adult volunteers from past Hoadley Hides (prior to 2017).
The stunts and activities of Hoadley Hide 2018 will still be based around a central theme – “Breached” – a scenario where breaches have opened between multiple worlds. These are based around a few different concepts: superheroes & villains; men, elves, hobbits, wizards and other fantastical creatures; and galaxies far away.
We are operating 18 stunts across the weekend along with the Overnight Camp for the Venturers. We are also providing catering for the weekend for all Hide Staff, as a result there is a fee which covers the catering of $45, which is fully put into the catering.
We need your help to deliver the event, running the stunts and other supporting activities for the event.
Key Changes from Previous Hoadley Hide Events before 2017
Due to increasing regulatory requirements, we are unable to camp or stay in the forest. This year the Hide is being run out of Rowallan Scout Camp, with a dedicated overnight camp for Rovers & Staff. This is located in an area well away from the Venturer Camp but we will be sharing the toilets & shower facilities (yes, the Hide will have access to showers!).
To increase participation and interaction between members, we no longer require an entire crew to commit to operating stunts. The idea being that if you are unable to create a team to run a stunt, that you can still attend and work with other volunteers to operate a stunt.
In order to deliver an event with an overarching storyline that has some level of continuity we will be assigning the activities on each stunt. We will need your help with resources and equipment to run the stunt such as equipment available from your local Scout Groups or your crew den. Specialist equipment required for any stunts will be arranged by the Hide Leadership Team, but we may need some help with pickups and logistics.
When you sign up, you will be asked for the role you’d like to undertake. Additionally, for some roles there will be a space to provide some additional information or notes as to why you’d like to do the role. Provide a bit of a summary of good ideas or items you’d do in this role and how it will add to this exciting new event.
Stunt Team Member
You will be assigned to a stunt with a Stunt Team Leader who is responsible for planning and delivering the stunt. Your role is to undertake the assigned task in the stunt – it may be sign-in, leading the teams through the stunt or other tasks as required.
Stunt Team Leader
Your role as Stunt Team Leader is to produce and operate the stunt theme assigned to your site with the team members working alongside you.
Camp Guards & Raiders
Everyone involved will be at one stage as either a Camp Guard or Raider to add to the atmosphere and excitement of the Venturer Overnight Camp. This is conducted after stunts have closed for the day. Of course everyone is entitled to a meal break, you may be rostered on before or after dinner each evening. We will need all adults on deck for the Saturday night activity.
