As a new Adventurous Activity, ‘Motoring’ in Scouts is pleased to announce the first official AA Motoring activity.
Many adult Scouters have been towing various box trailers, canoe trailers or the like for a long time however, a lot of Scouters have not and tend to leave it to others. This is often because they simply haven’t had the chance to learn and don’t feel confident. If you have ever wanted to tow but haven’t had the confidence, this is a great opportunity for you to learn in a controlled environment all the ins & outs of towing a trailer or caravan.
AA Motoring offer the following for all licenced scouting members including adult leaders, adult helpers and Group Committee Members;
A one-day course to be held at Nirimba TAFE in Quakers Hill on Sunday the 31st of July commencing at 9:00am and finishing around 3:00pm.
