    Question Kit List - Christmas List Ideas

    Hi all,

    I have just come back from a night hike. I was surprised how many kids didn't have a torch.

    In my Chairman's newsletter (just before Christmas), I was planning to suggest a list of items that might make good stocking fillers.

    I had an idea of:-
    - Headtorch (with red light)
    - Day Sack
    - decent water bottle

    Anything else anyone can think of? This will cover beavers, cubs and scouts.

    Thanks

    These small travel towels are great. Come in their own wee net bag and take up next to no room.

    In fact, I've just re-read the above paragraph and thought why? Scouts don't use wash kits let alone towels!

    Anyway, an idea.
