Event: Sussex100 – preparation day, Sun 3 Jul

The Sussex100 camp is such a big event that preparation is required before camp. The District has arranged an activity day which we hope that our campers will be able to attend. Information about the camp itself is on our Sussex100 page.

Where: Ashington Community Centre, Foster Lane, Ashington, RH20 3PG. Plenty of car parking available.

When: Sunday 3 July, from 10am to 3.30pm. The day will be split into costume making (10-12), lunch (12-1) and Cubs got talent (1-3.30)

Costume making: The organisers have chosen a Jungle Book theme and we are in the Rikki-tikki-tavi sub camp. This means that we will have to make mongoose costumes. There are three parts to the costume – ears, tails and t-shirt painting. You will need to bring:

  • 1 Alice band (to have the ears fixed to)
  • 2 pairs of brown coloured tights
  • Newspaper (to stuff the tights and make tails as we did for our St George’s Day dragons)
  • 1 plain white T-shirt (named, to be painted)
  • 1 coat hanger (to hang the designer t-shirts up to dry)

Lunch: You will need to bring a packed lunch but the organisers will provide drinks

Cubs got talent: There are 4 categories within Cubs Got Talent, these are:

  • Singing (solo or group/choir)
  • Dance (solo or group)
  • Musical (instrumental i.e. without singing)
  • Speciality (comedy, juggling, hula hoop, acrobatics, ventriloquist

Each pack is expected to enter at least 1 act. Ideally 2 or more. Each act should be made up of Cub Scouts and/or their leaders/assistants and last for approximately 3 minutes. Details of the act need to be notified to the organisers by 24 June. Please bring everything that you need for Cubs Got Talent, i.e.

Voting will be done by the audience completing a slip. One act from each category will be voted for and the act with the highest number of votes in each category will be put through to the main Cubs Got Talent at Sussex100. To make things fair, voters will not be allowed to vote for their own pack. We need 1 act from each category and 2 others of our choice, so a total of 6
acts will be displayed at Sussex100.

Transport: You will need to make your own way to and from Ashington 

Who: This event is only open to Cubs and leaders who are on our Sussex100 guest list. The organisers would welcome extra helpers to help make the costumes in the morning session.

Cost: There is no charge for attending the camp preparation day

Paperwork: You will need to complete our standard health form online nearer the time. This event will be the deadline for handing in the completed health forms for the camp itself.

Wear: Uniform is not required. Please wear suitable clothes for painting in.

This is a District event organised by the Petworth & Pulborough Sussex100 team.
