Anyone fancy meeting up for a G2G to link in with this?

Should be a great weekend

"For Girlguiding UK members aged 18+ to inspire, inform and empower.

Bring food*, bring a tent - we’ll provide the activities.

Take part in workshops on the Millennium Development Goals, hear what inspires other women, or try your hand at some camping skills. If they don’t take your fancy you can run a session on whatever you like - we'll supply the resources!

Send £5 deposit – pay the rest at camp, pay what you can afford, and pay what you think the camp was worth.

Email pippa@myriadit.net for a booking form.

*A BBQ will be provided as part of the party on Saturday night."

could camp together as a group.

The paying what you can afford/what you think the camp was worth idea is interesting! Imagine it is a nightmare to budget though!

It'd be interesting to see how much the average people pay after is etc., partly just out of my own nosiness!

I want to go as I really want to support Pippa in this project, but I'll have to see closer to the time how exams and things are looking.

Sounds like a wonderful idea - and so nice that it is an 18+ event, will put it to my older Rangers at the weekend.
yep:) weve all been asking for something for adults to do for long enough which was a) affordable and b) fun.
looks like both boxes ticked here

It was in the e-newsletters so I suspect it will be filled spoonly.
I've got plans to go to a ball on the 22nd so don't think I'll be there.

I put myself down as going on facebook ages ago but then never did anything about it! Have just emailed Pippa though, so hopefully I'll be able to nab a space before it's full!

We've been offered a chance to do an activity/workshop/session etc on promoting guiders.co.uk during Camp Out.

This would be a fab chance to get new members and for a G2G.

Whos coming? and what can we do?

You already know I am, lol.

What about bringing some samples of the activities people have posted on here, such as the jelly baby evening? We could also get people to talk about hypothetical problems within their units, get the others to give advice, and then highlight to them that the forum provides this kind of 'sounding board' for stuff at a click of a button.

like it did think about getting posters up about the badges weve had for fundraising i.e the Japan badge too that may go down well.
