It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that bookings for Operation Chameleon 2015 are open!
The event is taking place on 17th October, to enter your teams and for more information go to; www.operationchameleon.org.uk
We’re slightly changing our booking process this year to make it easier for leaders and for event organisers on the day. 2014 saw a lot of drop outs on the morning of the event for various reasons so these changes we have made will hopefully make things simpler!
Leaders are no longer required to organise participants in to teams before registering, leaders are asked to register all young people and adults as one group. Scout teams must be entered in to the ratio of 1 adult to 5 young people as a minimum; any scout teams not meeting this ratio risk not being able to participate on the day! On the day of the event we can quickly create the teams to suit the ratios within the rules and get you through kit check and on to the bus to our new mystery location, we will be using ARUPS again as a departure/arrivals base!
Catcher teams are still only able to enter in pairs.
For the first time since the launch of Operation Chameleon we are increasing the event fee for all young people from £15 to £16.50 – this price increase guarantees that every walking team will be provided with a full OS Map of the playing area which the group can keep for after the event, feedback shows us that our own printed maps just aren’t good enough for walking!
If you’re a group leader then please head to our website to register using our County Event Management System, if you’ve taken part in the event before and would like to again then please pester your leaders to get you signed up!
Of course we’re always on the look out for more adults as catcher teams so please start talking to your parents and get them signed up!
Over the next week or so we’re reviewing all of our rules and kit lists so get ready to see those and details of our *brand new* catching system!
