Welcome chasers, prison camp guards, assorted villains and peacekeepers!
Rovers, Leaders and Adult Volunteers – we need your help 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.
The stunts and activities of Hoadley Hide 2017 will still be based around a central theme – “On The Run” a Prisoner-of-War camp breakout – but synopses of each stunt will developed by the organising team to directly tie into the event narrative, and given to each stunt team of Rovers and/or Leaders, for them to flesh out and run (in costume!).
Update: Rover, Adult & Leader Volunteer fee reduced to $45
We are operating 15 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
Due to increasing regulatory requirements, we are unable to camp or stay in the forest. This year the Hide is being run out of Barry’s Reef 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 & Escape Checkpoint Guards
Everyone involved will be at one stage a Camp or Escape Checkpoint Guard. This is conducted after stunts have closed for the day. Of course our loyal guards are entitled to meal breaks, you may be rostered on before or after dinner each evening. It will be all guards on deck for the escape.
