Thanks to the support of the Queensland Department of Sport and Recreation for a ‘Get Going Clubs’ grant the dream of having our own trailer for the many weekends away has finally been realised and we recently took delivery of the groups new trailer.
While its often said that a camel is horse designed by commitee, we think we got this one pretty right after checking out what other groups were using checking in with Hawkeye and Komodo (our resident trailer experts). Light enough to be towed by your average family wagon, yet with braking and tires to handle the heaviest loads and fully galvanised to with stand years of …err abuse, we hope it will bring us many years of service. Samuel took delivery from Rhys (pictured) of the new trailer, probably in the hopes of earning another badge (good luck with that one).
Many thanks to the trailer guys (they also do camper trailers ) who understood our needs and were able to advise us on the pros and cons of the various features on an extensive wish list. Also big thanks to Murrays marine upholstery for the cover, spiffy pole rack up top and for organising the signage so we can be spotted easily and next district camp.
We’d also like to that MP Joe Kelly and counsellor Krista Adams for supporting our grant application last year too and Scouts Queensland for the submission process.
